Lakshadweep will soon get 2 Taj branded resorts at Suheli and Kadmat Islands by Tata Group


With 75 beach villas and 35 water villas, the Taj Kadmat will have 110 rooms; the Taj Suheli, on the other hand, is anticipated to have 110 rooms with 60 beach villas and 50 water villas.    

The Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), a key player in the hospitality sector and an integral part of the esteemed Tata Group, has unveiled ambitious plans to establish two luxurious Taj-branded resorts on the enchanting islands of Kadmat and Suheli within the idyllic Lakshadweep, India's smallest union territory. This strategic move not only signifies a significant leap forward in bolstering tourism but also holds the promise of invigorating the local economy. Emphasizing a steadfast commitment to ecotourism and sustainable development, IHCL is set to pioneer Greenfield projects that are slated to grace these pristine islands with their presence in 2026. This initiative underscores the group's visionary approach towards harmonizing opulence with environmental consciousness, presenting a noteworthy example of responsible tourism in action.   


This occurs at a time when the Maldives and India are at odds, and Lakshadweep is being marketed as a top holiday spot for Indian travelers. PM Modi posted images of the islands and promoted Lakshadweep as a travel destination, which caused the area to suddenly become well-known.   


Lakshadweep, with its untouched beaches and vibrant coral reefs nestled in the embrace of the Arabian Sea, holds immense promise for growth and exploration. IHCL MD and CEO, Puneet Chhatwal, expressed his enthusiasm while unveiling the recent signings of luxurious resorts last year. "The introduction of two exquisite Taj resorts is poised to captivate a global audience, beckoning both international jet-setters and discerning domestic travelers," he stated, as reported by Business Today. The allure of these world-class accommodations is expected to contribute to the archipelago's emergence as a premier destination, showcasing the natural splendor of Lakshadweep to the world.

The exquisite Taj Suheli is poised to enchant guests with its luxurious offerings, boasting a total of 110 meticulously designed rooms. Among these, 60 opulent beach villas provide an idyllic retreat on the sandy shores, while 50 captivating water villas offer a unique overwater experience. Meanwhile, the enchanting Taj Kadmat beckons with 110 thoughtfully curated rooms, featuring a harmonious blend of 75 beach villas and 35 enchanting water villas. Each space is a testament to the Taj commitment to unparalleled hospitality, promising an unforgettable stay immersed in luxury and natural beauty.   

The mesmerizing archipelago of Lakshadweep, nestled in the embrace of the Arabian Sea, is celebrated for its enchanting landscapes that boast unparalleled beauty. From idyllic beaches to vibrant coral reefs and tranquil lagoons, the region offers a visual feast for those seeking serenity and adventure alike. Embracing the azure waters that surround it, Lakshadweep stands as a haven for water sports enthusiasts. Windsurfing, snorkeling, surfing, water skiing, and yachting are just a few of the thrilling activities that beckon travelers to indulge in the aquatic wonders of this pristine destination.   

In a bold move, the esteemed IHCL, India's largest hospitality firm, has proudly announced its involvement in this paradisiacal venture. The company underscores its commitment to innovation and a pioneering spirit that has previously propelled iconic travel destinations such as Rajasthan, Kerala, Goa, and the Andaman Islands onto the global travel map. With this strategic agreement, IHCL not only reinforces its dedication to pushing boundaries in the world of travel but also sets the stage for a new chapter in the exploration of Lakshadweep's untouched splendor.   

Modi's trip to Lakshadweep   


During his recent visit to Lakshadweep on January 2, Prime Minister Modi highlighted the government's commitment to the overall progress of the Union Territory and expressed excitement about its potential for development. Admiration for the prime minister's breathtaking images and films highlighting Agatti's unspoiled beauty was widespread. He shared his thrilling snorkeling experience from the trip to Lakshadweep on social media and urged adventure seekers to think about adding it to their travel itinerary.   

But when Modi's post on a well-known social media platform ('X') was criticized by three deputy ministers from the Maldives government's youth ministry—Malsha Shareef, Mariyam Shiuna, and Abdulla Mahzoom Majid—the uplifting story took an unexpected turn. These ministers implied that Modi was trying to promote the Union Territory as a rival travel destination to the Maldives by promoting Lakshadweep. Media sites in the Maldives have claimed that the three deputy ministers have been suspended due to their provocative remarks. This incident serves as a reminder of the tension that exists between regional tourism sector competition and diplomatic sensitivity.
