Expert reviews

Fodors review:

“Foreigners and wealthy Indians choose the Taj over other fancy hotels in town because it’s a beautiful and regal landmark—worth visiting even if you don’t stay here—with views past the Gateway of India to the Arabian Sea.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Mumbai.

CNN review:

“Few hotels in the world embody old-world glamor quite like the Taj Mahal Palace. Located in south Mumbai, the 285-room palace is the epitome of grandeur. There’s the luxurious Arabian Sea-view rooms, gold fabrics, grand chandeliers, fine-dining restaurants, a harborside bar and sky-high ceilings.”

Lonely Planet review:

“The grande dame of Mumbai is one of the world’s most iconic hotels and has hosted a roster of presidents and royalty. Sweeping arches, staircases and domes, and a glorious garden and pool ensure an unforgettable stay.”

Telegraph review:

“Cosseting guests in old-fashioned grandeur, Mumbai’s most iconic hotel is much loved by its well-heeled and glossy locals. Generations have celebrated life’s milestones here, making this more than just the city’s best luxury hotel, but part of its beating heart.”

Serving guests for over 100 years, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is a “Heritage Grand” class, five-star hotel in the Colaba region of Mumbai, India. It is situated next to the Gateway of India. The Cathedral of the Holy Name, National Gallery of Modern Art, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum and Cooperage Ground are all great tourist attractions located nearby. Simply known as “The Taj” to some, the hotel first opened its doors to guests on 16 December 1903.

Opulent in the extreme, the hotel is sprawled over 2.6 acres of land and boasts an impressive list of amenities including 10 restaurants, the Jiva Spa, the Taj Salon and landscaped pool. Lavishly designed decor and architecture extend to the guestrooms. They offer great views of the sea, city and pool. Every room features a flat-screen TV, a well-stocked minibar, free WiFi and an en-suite bathroom. There is even 24-hour butler service!

Guest can continue to spoil themselves with tasty dishes prepared at the famous Wasabi by Morimoto or the Golden Dragon Chinese Restaurant. The poolside Aquarius Lounge also offers amazing cuisine that caused a fireworks explosion on the tongue. Private dining can be arranged at Chef’s Studio. The Taj has a long and rich history and part of that history includes giving guests the best experience of their life.
