City | Food & wine | History & culture
Mumbai's history is intimately interlinked with that of the Taj Mahal Palace, the city's finest luxury hotel. It is, after all, Mumbai's first harbour landmark, built 21 years before the Gateway of India, which it overlooks. Perfectly placed along Colaba's bustling waterfront, it's ideally situated for exploring the city and for enjoying restful views across the Arabian Sea.
Rooms and suites overlook the Gateway of India, with a panoramic view of the bay. There are 543 rooms and 54 suites, which have the perfect blend of rich history and modern convenience. Rooms all include 40-inch televisions, complimentary bottles of water, and an in room electronic safe.
The hotel has a range of dining options. Try the Wasabi by Morimoto for its Omakase Menu and extensive selection of Sakes. There's also the Chef's studio, an uber-luxurious private dining space which combines gourmet cuisine with warm, personalised service.
In terms of facilities, the hotel offers the palace lounge, which offers exclusive access, a fitness centre, many options for leisure, a salon called the Taj Salon, and a concierge service.
