The Taj Mahal Palace has been an icon of the hotel scene in Mumbai for more than a century and, in the past, has hosted legends like the Beatles, figures like Hilary Clinton, and many crowned heads.
According to some, the hotel was built in the wrong direction and should have had its largest facade overlooking the harbour. But this reversal was intended, in order to welcome carriages rather than ships. Anyway you look at it, the building offers a dazzling show from all angles and now welcomes guests from the harbour side, as well. Most of the 560 rooms and suites have water views and luxurious interiors with marbled bathrooms, carved wooden screens, warm colour schemes, and luxurious fabrics.
Choose the heritage wing to enjoy the view over the ocean. The Taj Mahal Palace is home to no less than ten restaurants and bars that put the spotlight on Japanese, Indian, Chinese, and North African cuisine.
Relax in the spa, luxuriate in the pool, or enjoy a cocktail in the Harbour Bar before exploring Mumbai city, which is so close and yet so different.
