TAJ MG Road – Re-imagined, Redesigned & Renewed


TAJ MG Road has been one of the most iconic hotels in Bangalore since more than 3 decades.  There are many old timers who still have fond memories of the place from early 90s.  For many years the design of the property has been untouched.  That’s probably because customers were so used to the look.  But as they all say, ‘change is the only constant’.  After careful consideration, Taj hired the best company from Singapore for the job.  The changes were done across 2 ½ years without hampering the normal business.  New look was unveiled to the public at a special event on 6th April 2019.

Design Changes

We all know that MG Road is in the downtown of Bangalore and proximal to all localities.  Travelers find the Taj MG Road, to be perfect place to stay.  But if a change was to be done, it would have required the entire property to be shut down.  Instead, they decided to do it in 2 phases targeting specific section of the property.

The changes inside the property have been done very thoughtfully.  Let me share some of major changes that will strike any guest.

  • Balconies in all the rooms have been removed and room-size made bigger.
  • All-day dining restaurant has become more spacious.
  • Seating area around the swimming pool area has been made more spacious.

With the changes, the Taj MG Road is now truly – RE-IMAGINED, REDESIGNED & RENEWED.

Relaunch Party

The event was attended by top executives and Chefs from Taj Hotels across Bangalore.  Many of the Socialites and folks from Business community also attended the event.

To entertain the audience at the entrance, we had a lady at the main lobby, playing some wonderful violin.  The performance was apt was a beautiful party hosted at Taj.

The special performance for the evening was from one of the Legendary singers, Usha Uthup.  At the ages of 71 years, she looks very beautiful and her voice was very good.  This celebrated singer has won the Padma Shri and multiple awards Nationally & Internationally. Many of us have been a fan of her since decades and I have especially loved her voice modulation.  She sang mix of the old hindi songs, few new ones and many famous English songs.  Skyfall, Bulleya, Rambao Ho, Dum Maro Dum, Ajeeb Daastan Hain Yeh, I believe in music and more.

There was also DJ Sasha on the house to keep the party alive until late at night. Amazing food & drinks was very much part of the event.

Closing Thoughts

A beautiful event to celebrate the relaunch of a beautiful Taj MG Road property.  The changes int he property will make it more desirable to travelers across the National/Internally.  The evening was made special with the performance from Usha Uthup and hospitality.   The changes I described earlier are easy to write in words but one needs to visit to experience the same.  I am looking forward to personally visiting the property soon and stay in one of the renovated rooms.  Wishing the TAJ MG Road, the best of luck for future.
