Taj Ganges Varanasi

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Deluxe    

Taj Ganges Varanasi overview

Set in almost five hectares of well tended gardens a short drive from the heart of the city, the Taj Ganges (formerly the Gateway Hotel Ganges) provides a peaceful retreat in the holy city of Varanasi. The hotel is close to the famous ghats on the River Ganges, making visits to these and the many temples simple.

The 130 rooms are centrally air-conditioned and provide satellite TV, free Wi-Fi internet access, minibar, tea and coffee making facilities and an en-suite bathroom, all you require for a comfortable stay. Suites have extra space for a private sitting area. Standard and executive rooms overlook the city, executive suites have views of the city or gardens, and deluxe suites look out over the gardens.  

There is an attractive swimming pool in the gardens, ideal for unwinding, and spa treatments are available to enhance your relaxation. For those wanting more of a challenge there's a fitness centre with a selection of exercise machines. You have a choice of Indian, Asian and international cuisines at Varuna and Chowk, the hotel's two restaurants, and can socialise with fellow guests at Princep Bar.
