Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Discover the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai

The stately Taj Mahal Palace opened in 1903 and overlooks the majestic Gateway of India in Mumbai. This legendary hotel has played host to kings, dignitaries and eminent personalities from across the globe and is within walking distance from Colaba Causeway, known for its touristy tiny roadside shops, with the city’s shopping districts and tourist attractions nearby.

The hotel hosts 9 of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants and bars, renowned for delectable cuisines from India, Europe, the Middle East and the Orient. Relish authentic Indian cuisine at Masala Kraft; world famous Japanese dishes at Wasabi by Morimoto; exquisite Eastern Mediterranean food at Souk and Chinese at Golden Dragon. Dine all day at Shamiana and choose from the exotic range of sumptuous desserts at La Patisserie. Unwind with a refreshing meal at Aquarius, the poolside restaurant; and visit the stylish Harbour Bar. Signature experiences such as the afternoon tea at Sea Lounge and private dining at the Chef’s Studio make your stay with us truly memorable.

For a real treat, experience a traditional hammam (a Middle Eastern variant of a steam bath), which assists the body in releasing toxins through the pores and rehydrates the skin, in the Jiva Spa.
