Luxury hotel to star in new BBC series

Luxury hotel group Taj Hotels and Resorts is to feature in a new television documentary on the BBC.

Due to air on BBC2, Hotel India is a four-part series and launches on August 27 at 8pm.

It will focus on the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, where a film crew spent six months behind the scenes following some of its 1,500-strong team, whose mantra is 'Guest is God'.

The 560-room hotel, which is celebrating its 110th year, has played host to heads of state and celebrities, as well as Hollywood and Bollywood royalty, and can cost up to £9,000 for the top suite.

In 2008 it was caught up in a shocking terrorist attack that rocked the whole city.

'Hotel India' has been produced by The Garden Productions Ltd - the production company behind the BBC series 'Inside Claridge's'.

The programme will feature general manager Gaurav, long-term resident Maria Mooers who spends six months of the year living in the hotel, and Mr Chaskar, who has been in charge of the hotel's mini-bar service for 42 years.

The luxury group is the latest travel company to open its doors to film crews, following the likes of British Airways and Princess Cruises.
