Attention to quality services to details. Coming from a hospitable country, I could not help but being surprised of the hotel's beauties, comfort, amenities and not forget to mention about their efforts.

Really very good hotel, great room (not the basic level) and service. Such a wonderful atmosphere in the hotel too. Even at 3am I was greeted warmly and efficiently then shown to my room. Breakfast overlooking the Gateway to India is a real treat as well.

I spend over 150 nights a year in hotels, and the Taj Palace in Mumbai outclasses every other hotel I've stayed in. The rooms are lovely, the food is great, the swimming pool is blissful after a long day of meetings, but its the staff that make the Taj Palace spectacular. Every single member of staff is friendly, polite and...

I visited the Taj on a Saturday night with my brother. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful - the pool, lobby, restaurant - all stunning. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. We were lucky enough to have a room that overlooked the Gateway to India - whilst these rooms are probably noisier due to the road, the view is...

There's simply no better way to experience luxury in Mumbai. While for me, it's a staycation, if you're prepared to splurge, this is the place to do it.
