The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel View

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. The very first Taj hotel, yet the flagship of the group does not feel part of a chain. This ornately layered Baroque imitation of a Rajput palace, described as ‘saracenic revival architecture’, was built by founder Jamsetji Tata as a two-finger salute to the authorities after he was denied access to the city’s then top hotel.

The Taj Mahal Palace opened in Mumbai, then Bombay, in 1903, giving birth to the country’s first harbour landmark. The recently trademarked flagship hotel overlooks the majestic Gateway of India. This legendary luxury hotel has played host to kings, dignitaries and eminent personalities from across the globe, and is acknowledged as a world leader in hospitality. Each of the rooms 285 rooms & suites are a striking blend of nostalgic elegance, rich history and modern facilities. Strategically located in Mumbai’s prime historical and commercial hub, The Taj Mahal Palace is walking distance from Colaba Causeway, known for its touristy tiny roadside shops.

The two quite separate wings give two very different experiences: the original Heritage rooms feature more old-fashioned décor with dark-wood furniture and smaller windows with heavy drapes. The more contemporary Tower rooms, located in the high-rise adjacent to the original hotel, are more impressive, with their gleaming floors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. These don’t have the historical atmosphere but they really make the most of the views, and the contemporary décor is nicer, not to mention the better rates. Both parts are linked directly off the lobby, and share the same facilities. Bathrooms, regardless of wing, are great. Overall there are the usual amenities you expect from a five-star hotel: coffee and tea-making facilities, television, air-conditioning, plus the butler service that makes the truly top-end Indian hotels such a treat.

There’s a choice of two bars, and four restaurants: Masala Kraft for classic and modern Indian cuisine, Wasabi by Morimoto for Japanese seafood, Souk on the Tower rooftop for Eastern Mediterranean, and Golden Dragon for Asian. The latter totally knocked my socks off – crispy prawn dumplings, Beijing duck, steamed sea bass tossed with ginger, chilli, spring onions and soya were all utterly delectable. It has the best breakfast too, typical of five-star Indian hotels: a huge array of fresh cut fruit, yogurts, cereals, pastries, cold cuts. Eggs boiled, fried, poached or Benedict, and whatever else you fancy. Or skip the Western and watch the chef prepare a crispy dosa, or help yourself to idly and sambar.

The sense of space and breadth of facilities is the perfect antidote to dense and busy Colaba. Arguably, it has best swimming pool in south Mumbai, the best high tea, the best Asian restaurant, the best (albeit expensive) hotel shops. Service is phenomenal. Staff exude a palpable sense of pride and joy to be working here, and the memorial to all those who lost their lives protecting guests in the 2011 terrorist siege, including the hotel dog Lucy, is a moving tribute to the sense of family that permeates the Palace.
