Hillary Clinton with Taj Palace general manager Taljinder Singh
The Taj Palace in New Delhi seems to be Hillary Clinton's favourite place to stay. This is apparently the third consecutive time the US Secretary of State chose to stay at the lavish Tata Suite while she visited the capital this week.
The luxury 6,500 sqft, 16-room Tata Suite comes with its own private spa (fyi, Mrs Clinton even has a go-to massueur here), a gym, a private library, a 12-seater dining room and a boardroom. Incidentally, France's now ex-president Nicholas Sarkozy was the first world leader to stay at the Rs 8 lakh a night mugal-themed suite (click here to take a peek at the suite).
The hotel says the Tata suite was 'specially prepared according to her tastes' - that included stocking the Tata suite with big coffee mugs and a small platter of Indian sweets. She even got a bespoke shopping experience, curated by the hotel's in-house lifestyle brand. We wonder if she bought any of the paintings or ethnic tarakashi or garva kaam pieces displayed.
On Her Plate
Hillary Clinton's also known to like the char-grilled jumbo prawns and chicken kebab with burnt garlic from the Taj's Masala Kraft restaurant. Rajesh Wadhwa, executive chef at the Taj Palace, has also served her pan seared foie gras on brioche, preserved ginger, warm duck dressing, camembert cheese soufflé, roasted Chilean seabass, fava conchigli, liquorices sauce and penne in perigord black truffle sauce.
