My family and I have just come back from a four night stay at this beautiful hotel and once again I cannot recommend it highly enough. It has been two years since our last visit which we had also enjoyed immensely. The service is seemless and the décor throughout is stunningly beautiful and tasteful without being over the top. Nothing...

Quite possibly the best hotel in India and one of the best that we have stayed at. Pure unadulterated luxury from check in to check out. Multiple restaurants, this hotel sets the highest culinary standards. You can choose from Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Eastern Mediterranean and western influenced food. The Taj has the first bar in Mumbai and overlooks the Gate...

We stayed this month at the Mumbai Taj Mahal. There are really two separate hotels, one hotel built in the 1970's (we were told) called the Tower and dated and the other hotel is a classic. The Tower room was small and was in need of a paint job. We were on the 4th floor with a "superior city view."...

Stayed at the Taj with my wife. Great service, great ambience, the pool area is spectacular for a city hotel, the gym / spa are very good and there is a great selection of restaurants. Only two areas to improve are the car unloading area that is too tight and the air conditioning in our room (in the old part...

One of the finest 5 star property not just in Mumbai but India. Situated bang opposite to India's landmark 'Gateway of India' makes it more special. Unfortunately, it's status made the ISI to target it during the 26/11 attack, but don't worry the security is top notch making it the absolutely safe for your stay. This is still evident by...

Had a wonderful three night stay at this hotel. We had booked a room in the tower wing but were upgraded to the main building which was a lovely surprise. The staff were all very attentive and the overall service was excellent. The room was full of old world charm but with all the modern touches such as really quiet...

As usual I stayed in the heritage wing. The standard of hospitality remains very high. Breakfast in the Sea Lounge is a great start to any day. The hotel now seems to be more for tourists than for business people, but that is not a problem as all the business facilities are there. I will go to this hotel as...

The standard of service and the "experience" provided is beyond compare. It has such a calm and welcoming ambience from the moment you enter it. Outside the hotel is a busy city and inside is a piece of history, culture and many stories. Needless to say that the standard of rooms and bathrooms is up there. The service at this...
