India & The Indian Ocean
Location: Mumbai, India
A stay at The Taj Mahal Palace is an extraordinary way to discover Mumbai. Its location offers sweeping panoramic views of the Gateway to India and the Arabian Sea and the hotel itself is a visual treat - a breath-taking feat of architecture and a brilliant combination of Moorish, Oriental, and Florentine styles. The friendly staff goes to great pains to ensure that guests experience authenticity and luxury with carefully organised tours, events and dining events to cater to any number of tastes. There are two sections to the hotel, the “Tower” wing and the “Palace” wing. The walk that leads to the Palace suites is extraordinary. The corridors leading to your room are lined with genuine artefacts and antiques that are testimony to a rich Indian heritage of which this hotel is rightfully proud. You’ll be greeted with garlands and receive a special butler line.
The state-of-the-art suites are decked out in 3 parts notably a sumptuous and enormous en-suite marble bathroom and hydro massage hand shower - the only way to relax and retreat from the hectic flurry of Mumbai’s colourful streets. Highlights at the hotel are the Chef Studio offering an unparalleled gourmet dining experience and the fabulous Golden Dragon restaurant where you must be sure to sample the chef’s speciality dish, Song of the Dragon.
Ask the friendly staff about the Heritage Walk where you are taken on a guided tour that explains Indian history, art, and architecture ending with a flourish and a cup of champagne in the exclusive Palace Lounge. A trip fit for a king and his queen..!
