Weather in late June & Four Seasons Mumbai

Hi Everyone

I am taking my first journey to India in late June of this year. I was looking in my Frommers guide and was shocked to see how much rain falls in June and July (600 mm). Has anyone traveled during the monsoon? Is it a constant rain or does it come in spurts. Is it possible to still enjoy the city.

My other question is if anyone has stayed in the Four Seasons? It is new and there are not many reviews yet. I realize that it is not in the best part of town but I assume it is still nice being a Four Seasons.

Thanks

The Four Seasons is well located for sightseeing as all typical "must-see" tours of the city cover the area from Dhobi Ghat (which is just a couple of minutes from the hotel) to Gateway of India.

There are several interesting dining and clubbing options nearby. Olive and Tote at the Turf are in the nearby Racecourse (where you can also go for morning walks, I guess). Their high rooftop bar Aer offers excellent views over the sea and is very stylish. The popular Blue Frog is nearby, so are some good places in the Palladium Mall.

I have seen the rooms; they are larger than most hotels in the city; and there is the typical Four Seasons attention to service as well. The Concierge Desk is very capable. I have had friends and colleagues from work stay there (because our bank's offices were nearby) and they have been happy.

The negative point is that there is a large chawl area (lower middle class area) nearby; so unlike the Taj or the Oberoi, you are not located on the seashore.

The rain will arrive in June, yes. It's fairly unpredictable - some days have just a couple of short sharp showers, some days it drizzles all day long, some days it just pours and pours, and some days are sunny. Typically we see more rain in July and August than June.

Oh and it just struck me that the rooftop bar will be closed in the rainy season.

As mentioned by Deepa, the rain is not predictable. But July & Aug are worstly affected months by rain, than June.

If you do not like to get wet, try to visit Mumbai before June or after mid-september. Jun to Sept are the only rainy days in Mumbai.

Best season to visit can be in winter i.e. Nov to Feb.

Dear Anerol -

We have the following seasons, roughly speaking:

Winter: Oct - Feb

Spring: March

Summer: April to mid-June

Monsoon: mid-June to September

We have very mild winters, so it is very pleasant here, with the sun shining. Summer is hot and humid.

Four Seasons is nice but in a newer developed locality in Mumbai - Lower Parel. As someone else mentioned there are chawls around and thus it is not really a place where you can come outside the hotel property and take a stroll which i feel is important to get a feel of the city. Also the views are not great. More traffic in that area as well. I would recommend that you shift your reservation to the Taj. The area is much nicer with lot of character, with great views. It would also be much easier from here to do sight seeing - VT,Rajabhai,Marine Drive,etc Also the Kala Ghoda art area is nice.
