By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Taj Hotels, Resorts & Palaces has been recognized for excellence and service for its properties, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives and Taj West End Bangalore, at the Leading Hotels of the World Annual Convention held in Venice, Italy in November. The hotels have been honored for their high standards and commitment to excellence, following a rigorous, anonymous inspection covering hundreds of meticulous criteria.

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives was awarded the eighth annual Commitment to Quality Award in the Asia Pacific region and was also named the Grand Prize Winner for Commitment to Quality for displaying outstanding levels of quality in all elements of a luxury hotel experience. The resort scored an overall average of 95.6%, the highest rating within the Leading Quality Assurance audit. Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives is an intimate and romantic island resort lush with tropical plants and encircled with clear blue waters. With initiatives to substantially reduce its carbon footprint, the resort is Maldives’ first Green Globe Certified resort. Over the last year, the resort has introduced new restaurants and revitalized accommodations with private pools added to all Deluxe Lagoon Villas. Its Jiva Grande Spa offers a range of Indian wellness signature treatments and rituals.

Taj West End, Bangalore has been presented the fourth annual Commitment to Excellence award for the community category, which acknowledges hotels that make an exceptional effort towards community development, extending beyond service to areas of the environment, community outreach and cultural support. Going beyond its purview of hospitality, the hotel has engaged in community development consistent with Taj’s corporate policy, which emphasizes creating sustainable livelihoods and building community through social outreach programs in health, education, empowerment of women and youth, and employee volunteering. The main causes include reducing malnutrition, promoting indigenous artisans and craftsmen and increasing employability by sharing of Taj’s core competencies.
