“The Taj Mahal Palace is as slick and professional as you would expect from the flagship of India’s Tata business empire. Eight hundred staff are on duty at any one time (which generally works out at a staff member for every guest), rooms are adorned with India’s finest arts and crafts, there are around 15 yoga and meditation classes to choose from, and there’s a private jet and a luxury yacht on standby.”
An icon of Mumbai and the flagship Taj hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace occupies a prime position overlooking the Arabian Sea and the Gateway to India. Built in 1903, this opulent hotel blends Gothic, Greco-Roman, Islamic and Rajasthani architecture, and has played host to a glittering array of dignitaries and celebrities.
The Palace houses 285 guestrooms and suites blending Old World charm with modern luxuries, with exquisites fabrics and marble bathrooms alongside state-of-the-art technology. The Tata Presidential Suite features artworks and antiques, authentic colonial furniture and crystal chandeliers, while the Tower houses a further 275 superior and deluxe rooms in a more contemporary style.
The six restaurants embrace international cuisine, with Japanese, Chinese, Indian and Eastern Mediterranean on offer. There are several bars and lounges and a patisserie.
Enjoy a historic tour of the hotel, lounge around the pool, cruise on the hotel’s private yacht, explore Mumbai, and indulge in a signature Ayurvedic experience in Jiva Spa.
