A weekend at Taj Lands End with Epicure InnerCircle programme

It was certainly quite a pleasant surprise to bump into Ruchi over my Sunday breakfast at Taj Lands End, after meeting her and her family after years over dinner a couple of days back.

"What are you doing here Ruchi! Do you live here at Taj?", I asked her with a smile.

"Well we are on a workacation right now here at Taj. We had accumulated so many points from our previous visits that we decided to spend the long weekend here. Plus the little girls love it here - it's like their second home.", she explained.

I parted with a really happy smile, happy with my own decision to have applied for the Taj InnerCircle membership as part of their Epicure program. I knew such a workacation was something I would also love to have :)

But what exactly is Epicure?

Well, Epicure is the loyalty programme of the Taj Hotels group and is the largest of it's kind in the entire country! Encompassing the best that the Taj has to offer, experiences spanning from dine, drink, stay, spa and redemption! They have recently relaunched this programme on the Taj InnerCircle digital and social platforms.

My stay at Taj Lands End with InnerCircle programme

So when Taj InnerCircle invited me to experience the benefits of the Epicure program at one of their best properties in Mumbai, Taj Lands End, I simply couldn't resist. I had been travelling non-stop for a while, so decided to use a weekend simply to relax in Mumbai and enjoy all the privileges which come with the membership, and explore a few Mumbai landmarks within walking distance from the hotel. My previous trips to Mumbai had been spend exploring offbeat places, but this one was simply meant to do nothing.

Early morning reflection

Over almost the next three days, I was pampered with great food, the legendary Taj hospitality, and some excellent views of the city. What's even more awesome is that with every rupee spent, you also accumulate points which you can redeem later. Pretty cool, eh!

Here's a short video to give you a flavour of my experience there :)

So what was my favourite part of the hotel experience?
Well, it's got to be the excellent therapy session at the Jiva spa. It was so relaxing that I actually slept during the session and got up completely rejuvenated. In fact I would strongly recommend the spa experience to all Taj guests, and guess what, you can even earn some points with your spa session. Read further to know more :)

  1. Epic views for sure. The sights of the bridge are my favorite ones.

  2. Looks like an amazing place to visit. And that spa treatment oh yes please. Where do I sign up??

  3. It sounds like a great program and the property looks wonderful!

  4. A wonderful wonderful video! Great time lapse there. I can vouch for this programme as I am a member and the benefits are fabulous! Did you have food at Masala Bay? It's certainly one of the best retros in Mumbai.
    Also, Jiva spa is another hot favourite. Their consistency is why they are so sought after. Through professionals! :)

  5. This program sounds like a really great deal for frequent and loyal travelers. The benefits are good, and we need some pampering every now and then. It feels luxurious.

  6. Beautiful pictures especially the one from top floor and that reflection one. The Taj Epicure Inner circle program sounds awesome for the frequent travelers. They are for sure giving good deals and would love to check it out. for myself. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I've only heard great things about Taj properties! I'll definitely consider being one of their members. Also, I love the word workacation ;) Thanks for sharing and happy travels!

  8. I really would love to check out one of the Taj properties! They all look really fantastic, especially this one.

  9. Nice blog on Taj and superb pictures.
