My wife and I had promised to spend a weekend at Taj Palace once it reopened post the 2008 attacks.
We were blown away by how beautiful the hotel is and aesthetically the rooms have been done up. Only the Taj can convert an adversity into an opportunity and redo the entire hotel so beautifully. The rooms are large and the bathrooms are fabulous. Rich textures and furnishings make the look and feel like a palace.
In the heart of Mumbai city the hotel is an oasis of calm and tranquility. Palace wing guests can avail of the Palace lounge for complimentary tea/coffee, high tea and evening soft drinks and snacks.
The pool is large and fabulous.
Also do take the heritage walk to see the suites and rooms in the hotel every evening at 5 pm. Well worth it.
Truly the flagship hotel of a group as renowned as the Taj.
