  • 4.7 Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai

    Hotel The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai

    Fodors

    “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.

  • 4.5 Abode Bombay Mumbai

    Abode Bombay Hotel, Mumbai

    New York Times

    “Abode Bombay is a quirky hotel up the road from the Gateway of India, with 20 chic rooms with lots of Old World charm (but modern conveniences too: guests are loaned local cellphones to use during their stay). The delicious breakfast buffet features local favorites — spinach pakoras, pav bhaji, corn poha — along with made-to-order masala omelettes and egg bhurji.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Mumbai.

  • 4.6 Trident Bandra Kurla Mumbai

    Hotel Trident Bandra Kurla, Mumbai

  • 4.4 Hyatt Regency Mumbai

    Hotel Hyatt Regency, Mumbai

    CNN

    “It’s understandable given its location, service and facilities that the Hyatt Regency is usually filled with business travelers. Rooms are sleek and uncluttered, and include a work desk and Wi-Fi internet.”

  • 4.3 Residency Fort Mumbai

    Residency Hotel Fort, Mumbai

    Lonely Planet

    “The Residency is the kind of dependable place where you can breathe a sigh of relief after a long journey and be certain you’ll be looked after well. It’s fine value too, with contemporary rooms.”

  • 4.5 Four Seasons Mumbai

    Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai

    CNN

    “The Four Seasons hotel has given us Mumbai’s highest bar (roof top lounge Aer) a fabulous spa and The Club, an exclusive 33rd floor area where members can talk business even as they ponder the vintage of their Cristal Rosé.”

  • 4.4 Grand Hyatt Mumbai

    Hotel Grand Hyatt, Mumbai

    CNN

    “Take 500+ rooms, 100+ apartments, 10 meeting halls, and an upscale shopping plaza. Add some fine dining restaurants and sprinkle liberally with funky, contemporary art, et voila — you have the sprawling 10 acre complex of the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai.”

  • 4.0 Hotel Marine Plaza Mumbai

    Hotel Marine Plaza, Mumbai

    CNN

    “With a breathtaking sea view, lights along the bay, and a flower-laden pool terrace, Hotel Marine Plaza’s Allamanda terrace really is hard to resist. The Art Deco interiors hold another sweet spot — its five-story atrium, with enthusiastically English pub, Geoffrey’s, adjacent to it on the ground floor.”

  • 4.1 Rodas Ecotel Mumbai

    Rodas Ecotel Hotel, Mumbai

    CNN

    “The eco tag is always a novelty, but the Rodas Powai does live up to it with a very high green quotient. The Rodas has a strict no paper napkin/sachet/plastic policy so you’re encouraged to be a planeteer — reuse towels (hang them up) and sheets.”

  • 4.4 Hotel La Sutra Mumbai

    Hotel La Sutra, Mumbai

    New York Times

    “A few blocks from seaside Carter Road in Bandra, Le Sutra bills itself as an Indian art hotel. Each of the 16 rooms has a different theme — Taal, or ‘beat,’ comes with instruments, bells and a chair fashioned from a drum — and one of the two restaurants, the Mediterranean-inspired Olive Bar & Kitchen is a longstanding go-to hangout for hip Bandra-ites.”

    Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Mumbai.

  • 4.2 Juhu Residency Mumbai

    Juhu Residency Boutique Hotel, Mumbai

    Lonely Planet

    “The aroma of sweet lemongrass greets you in the lobby at this excellent boutique hotel with an inviting atmosphere (and a fine location, five minutes’ walk from Juhu beach). The chocolate-and-coffee colour scheme in the modish rooms works well.”

About Mumbai

You won’t get a more appropriate nickname than the City of Dreams for a place like Mumbai. It seems like an amalgamation of all the elements that make a city — sights, sounds, and smells.

The coastal city has something for everyone, from shopping enthusiasts to party animals and foodies. From exploring its rich history to taking selfies at famous landmarks, there is no end to what you can do in this bustling metropolis – just check out our list of things to do in Mumbai below!

Morning Walk
If you are a history buff and want to get a feel of the city’s colonial past, then start your day by walking along the Arthur Road Jail. This Cellular Jail was built in the 1800s and is famous for being the place where the Indian revolutionaries were imprisoned and tortured. The walls of this prison are still stained with blood and are a reminder of the sacrifices made by people during the Indian freedom struggle. Walk a little further to the St. Peters Church, which is one of the oldest churches in Mumbai. It is built in the Gothic style and is famous for being the final resting place of the first Indian Christian martyr, St. Thomas. The Fort area of Mumbai is famous for its gardens and walkways that are perfect for a leisurely morning walk. You can also visit the Prince of Wales Museum and the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, once the residence of the royal family of the erstwhile Kingdom of Bhopal.

Travelling in Mumbai
Start your journey to the Gateway of India by hopping on the Mumbai local train. It is one of the cheapest modes of transport in the city, but also the most adventurous. You can even try out the vintage Railway Mail Service (RMS) bags that were used by British postal workers in the 1930s. If you want to travel in style, then go for a ride on the ferries that operate between Gateway of India and Mandwa. You can also take a ride on a cruise along the harbour or just enjoy the view from the roof-top terrace of a cruise. There are many ways to explore Mumbai by foot, but if you are not comfortable carrying your bag or want to save time, then take an auto rickshaw or an Uber. If you feel adventurous, you can even take the bus.

Darshan of Shri Saibaba, Sai Center & Shirdi Sai Temple
If you are a spiritual seeker or just curious about the different faiths followed in India, then a visit to the Shirdi Sai Center is a must. This place is considered as the most important Sai Center in the country, and you can also find a Sai Temple inside it, which houses the samadhi (burial site) of Shri Saibaba. The Shri Saibaba Temple is one of the most important religious places in Mumbai and attracts millions of devotees each year. If you want to witness the rush of devotees and their frenzy during the darshan of Shri Saibaba, then try to visit the temple on the day of the annual festival, which is celebrated in the month of October.

Horniman Museum and Zoo
If you are a nature lover, then make a trip to the Horniman Museum and Zoological Gardens. It is one of the oldest museums in India and has a rich collection of artefacts from the colonial era. You can also visit the adjoining Botanical Gardens and watch the monkeys climb up the trees and shrubs. If you want to walk on the wild side, then drop by at the Horniman Zoological Gardens and get a glimpse of the Indian wildlife. You can also feed the animals like the gigantic King Penguin, black-and-white Giant Panda, and the Indian star tortoise.

Church and Colaba Fort
If you want to visit the oldest churches in Mumbai, then make your way to Churchgate, where the Bombay Cathedral and St. Thomas Cathedral are located. Visit St. Thomas Cathedral, built in the neoclassical style and is famous for housing the blood relics of St. Thomas. The Colaba Fort is one of the most famous tourist places in Mumbai and comes alive on weekends with street art and music festivals. Once the administrative center of the Bombay and Baroda (present-day Gujarat) governments, the fort is now a protected monument and houses a museum inside.

Gateway of India and Marine Drive
Even if you just want to relax and unwind, then a walk from Marine Drive to the Gateway of India and back is the perfect way to do so. You can also take a walk on the other side of the road and enjoy the beautiful view of the Arabian Sea. If you are in Mumbai, you must visit the Gateway of India, a famous Mumbai landmark, built in the 1920s by the British to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to the city. You can also enjoy watching the cruise boats from the Gateway of India and create beautiful memories with your loved ones. If you want to enjoy the view of the city skyline and the sea breeze at the same time, then Marine Drive is the place to be. You can enjoy this scenic drive at any time of the day, but the best time to visit the place is in the evening when the city shines with lights.

Dhobi Ghat and Chai Break
If you want to experience the charm and magic of the bygone era and get a feel of Mumbai’s colourful culture and traditions, then head to the Chawl, the small neighbourhood where the city’s famous laundrymen, the dhobis reside and work. Visit the famous Chor Bazar Street, where you can find everything from antiques to saris, and Dhobi Ghat, the place where the dhobis do their laundry work.
