About Trident Hotel Chennai
Low slung and set among hectare of gardens, the Trident Chennai is the perfect pit stop. The location is perfectly placed, near to the airport yet ideal for exploring Chennai’s long stretches of golden beaches and heritage buildings.
Rooms offer modern luxury and feel homely with light wood furniture, bright earthy tones and crisps and splashes of colour from freshly cut flowers.
Unwind by the outdoor palm-fringed pool or take to the spa for an Ayurvedic treatment. Eager to explore? Chennai is a 10-minute taxi ride away. The concierge is all too happy to point you to landmarks like Fort St George, an important outpost for the British Empire or Marine Beach to see local fishing boats drawn up on the sand.
Amble down to the bar for a cocktail and casual snack like miso-marinated paneer. As for dining, choose from Cinnamon, serving international fare or Samudra, specialising in Indian seafood. Tuck into Malabar prawn curries and Chettinad spiced crab cakes.
