Indian hospitality company Taj Hotels Resorts & Palaces announced a new brand last week, Vivanta by Taj Hotels & Resorts. The company migrated 16 Taj properties to the new upper-upscale flag, combining them with the three existing Vivanta hotels. Expansion plans for the brand, which currently offers nearly 2,500 rooms, involve growing to more than 5,000 rooms in 30 properties in the next two years. Vivanta by Taj hotels are located throughout India.
