When our large family group stepped out of the black hotel cars and into the air conditioned, lemony smelling reception of the Taj, Apollo Bunder, Mumbai, I did for a moment think that I was descended from royalty. The rose petals and dhiyas and bowing had me.....until we were asked to present passports and credit cards!
But what a beautiful building, furnished impeccably, down to the floral arrangements and scent burners. The rooms do not disappoint, nor does the buffet breakfast. The service was excellent all round. I would happily stay there again.
