India’s Taj Hotels sets sights on Palm Jumeirah

India’s Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces has set its sights on operating a property on the Palm Jumeirah once again. The hotel operator, which had to scrap a project on the man-made island announced in 2006, will open its first property there in 2019, according to a report in

Its 325-room, five-star Taj Exotica Resort and Spa on the western crescent of The Palm will be owned by the Dubai-based real estate company Arenco Group. The Mumbai-based company announced the 207-room Viv­anta by Taj at Jumeirah Lakes Towers in Dubai last year. The property is also expected to be ready in three years.

“The markets of focus for Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces in the region are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Muscat, Riyadh, Jeddah, Khobar and Bahrain,” said Chinmai Sharma, the chief revenue officer at Taj Hotels resorts and Palaces.

“We are looking at expanding in regions such as the Middle East and North Africa, South East Asia and greater China – essentially in regions that are important feeder markets into India or are important outbound markets where Indians love to travel. “India will remain its focus market as domestic demand continues to grow, he said.

The company has 85 hotels in India, and 16 overseas including in the US, the UK, South Africa, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal.
