My company has a policy of shelling out performance incentives as a means of rewarding their employees. The fiscal year did good to me, I with a few other colleagues made the cut to get our hands on the ever so lucrative Epicure card for enhanced savings and experiences at the Taj group of hotels.

Applicable at across 250+ restaurants, 600+ bars, 80+ hotels and 60+ spas worldwide, Epicure is a very powerful loyalty card. The membership package comes with the physical Epicure card and electronic certificates. The membership card allows me to earn 50% as points on the first three dining transactions and a 25% earning for all successive dining transactions.

The Taj Mahal Hotel on Mansingh Road and The Taj Diplomatic Enclave are my two go to Taj hotels in Delhi. Known to house legendary restaurants like Varq and House of Ming, through Epicure Taj gives an opportunity to indulge in the best while saving.

I have made my way to 5,000 points already. I’m very excited to earn more points through the coming year and redeem them for room night stays and more meals.

I have heard that a few restaurants at Taj have redone their menu to include new dishes. Now I don’t have to think twice before going to taste the new menu – I know while dining I will only be saving for future stays or experiences at Taj.

I had a conversation with my colleagues and got to know that they’ve had similar earning stories. I’m so happy to have been gifted this by my company. I have really enjoyed my experience with the card and plan to renew next year.

Get rewarded for dining and entertainment at The Taj

I constantly jet set around the country and the region for work. Even though business travel is just a part of the grind for most people, it is something I’m extremely meticulous about.

My travels over the past few years have taught me that choosing the right loyalty card is a crucial task on your way to start reaping the rewards from extensive dining and stays at hotels. For anybody who stays at hotels for extended periods of time, it only makes sense to get rewarded for the same.

I chose the Taj Hotels as it provides me access to a collection of exquisite properties across the region. My normal stops are mostly large Indian cities like Delhi and Mumbai. There is a Taj property in each of these places and they really look after their guests.

The Epicure membership comes with great perks like a complimentary night stay (which I use for my holiday) and point earning and redemption over food, drinks and the spa. Added to the 25% Epicure point earning on food, the membership offers Happy Hours at the Bars all days of the week. When I travel alone, I do tend to use the Happy Hours offer often. The best bit is that I meet other single travellers and many use the Epicure membership for the Happy Hours too. It’s a super benefit.

I accumulate enough Epicure Points and Airline miles due to my incessant travel that I can treat my family to two holidays a year at almost no cost. The Epicure Points take care of the stay and the earned miles take care of our travel.

The Epicure membership comes with great perks like a complimentary night stay (which I use for my holiday) and point earning and redemption over food, drinks and the spa.

The annual membership price is recovered by the use of the free room night and the 50% Point earning for the 1st three transactions alone.

I’d recommend the membership to anyone with a penchant for travel and entertainment. It works well to reward your family and make up for the time spent away with some wonderful memories at the Taj, all earned through redemption of Points. The Taj has a wonderful set of experiences you can redeem your Points for. If you’re interested to know more, you can log on to the Taj website for a detailed view on their Point earning and redemption system.

Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris is the epitome of Indian hospitality. My family has been a patron of their legendary service for decades now. For all special occasions and celebrations, the Taj has always been our first choice. Hence, getting a membership for the Taj was quite a no-brainer for me.

As I began my research to know more about the membership offered by Taj, I noticed that the Epicure is one of the largest loyalty programme of its kind in the country offering the best in food, beverage, spa and point redemption! Epicure offers its members the perfect opportunity to experience the best in Indian hospitality, service and luxury at 80 hotels in India and 16 hotels across the world.

Since I’ve become an Epicure member I have enjoyed the most celebrated restaurants and some stellar bars worldwide. From the most divine Creme brulee at Wasabi by Morimoto in Mumbai to the absolutely indulgent Galouti and Kurkure Kumbh at Masala Art in Delhi, my wife and I have tried it all at Taj and earned every rupee we spent in the form of points which I can redeem later.

Epicure membership also gives me a complimentary membership to the Silver Tier of the Taj InnerCircle membership which allows me to earn points each time I stay at one of the iconic Taj hotels. What’s even better is that the membership comes with a free room night stay and a couple of upgrade vouchers to enjoy higher category of rooms at The Taj, all at at no extra charge. Epicure welcomes you with 50% off on the first 3 dining spends at Taj hotels and for all successive dining experiences you get a heady 25% back as points.

If there’s one thing I recommend more than anything is to experience tranquility at the Jiva Spa. Said to be an all-natural spa, it offers the perfect amalgamation of ritual, technique and ingredients to heal the mind body and spirit. Off all the treatments offered, Shirodhara is a personal favourite. Being an Epicure member obviously has its perks at the Spa too – a 25% earning on treatments at Taj properties across the world and even if you are not staying at the hotel.

Unwinding with a drink after a hectic day is always a good idea; more so when the drinks flow easy and you don’t have to pay for every glass you drink. Since it’s Happy Hours from 6pm to 8pm across all bars for Epicure members, most of our small scale house parties have now shifted to the bar at a Taj property. Good company, good food and a free drink for each drink consumed! What more can you ask for!

So folks, you’ve got it all covered with this membership – 50% point earnings on first three dining transactions and 25% point earnings on all successive dining spends, 25% point earnings at spas across the world, happy hours at all bars, a complimentary room night stay and two room upgrades. The Taj Group of Hotels have got you a pretty sweet deal with this membership, I see no reason to hold back.
