Average time to visit
Isolated from much of India by the Western Ghats, the climate of Kerala & Karnataka is tropical and as a result of the mountain ranges the area isn’t as dry as much of India. The best time to visit is from January through to April. While there can be the occasional light showers these are just a prelude of the wet weather to come. The weather is generally hot and humid during this early summer. The monsoon season arrives in early June and thus can wash out July and August. September is much more humid as a result of the rainy season, and the fall can be dry but with the humidity this makes it feel quite warm. There can be a little rain in the night in October and November. The temperatures cool down and the humidity lets up as winter comes in around December, with this season lasting until February when the dry spring returns. Winter can be a pleasant time to visit, especially if you’re looking to head off the beach and explore the rest of this Indian land of mystery.

A true respite from the hectic pace of Bangalore city! The hotel has a wonderful old 'colonial plantation' feel to it - abundant with flora and fauna and a peaceful haven to enjoy some relaxation and pampering during your city exploration.
In true Taj style, the hotel exudes charm, has immaculate service and the most exquisite of restaurants. A real gem in Bangalore, the hotel is a must and will leave you wanting more.

A guest recently said he thought the Taj West End was better than any city hotel in India. The Taj West End is very unique, spread out in huge gardens with a colonial feel to it that you don't find elsewhere. The rooms have all been kept up to a high standard and for a night or two, the hotel offers a great base to explore the city.
