Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces is set to launch its second Dubai property in March.

The Indian group will open Taj Dubai in the emirate’s Downtown district, close to the Burj Khalifa. It already operates the Taj Palace hotel in Deira.

The 296-room property will have seven food and drink outlets, including Indian and Peruvian restaurants, as well as a spa and a members-only business club called Chambers.

The group is due to open a property under its Vivanta by Taj brand in Dwarka, south-west Delhi, in January. Located 20 minutes’ drive from Delhi Indira Gandhi International airport, it will have 250 guestrooms as well as dining, spa and meeting facilities.

A 283-room property is scheduled to open at Mumbai International airport’s Terminal 1C in April.

Taj now provides free wifi to in-house guests across all of its 125 hotels.
