This was our first time in Mumbai and we picked the Meluha Fern only from what we had read on Trip Advisor.
I wish all hotels were this good, it was spotlessly clean, it has the smiliest staff I have ever met with a great standard of english. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have ever had. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet what more can you ask for The day before we were due to fly I thought I might e mail the Hotel and see if they could organise a taxi to collect us from the airport only because we had no idea where the hotel was in relation to the airport and didn`t want the hassle with indian taxi drivers, they sent two cars one for us and one for our luggage, and took us back to the airport when we checked out totaly free. I could not recommend this place highly enough.
However, it is a bit far out which for us was not a problem because the taxi rides into the Mumbai centre were great fun, the rickshaw (tuk tuks) rides were even more so, and to get back to such a nice area afer the manic centre was a nice change.
The bit that annoyed me the most was the pricing, they will give a price in rupees but when the bill comes they have added VAT, two education taxes, a luxury tax and even though your breakfast is included you do have to pay a tax on it why can we not have the all inclusive price makes it somuch easier to budget but this isn`t just the hotel its everywhere.
