“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2009

I stayed there one night and was very impressed. The hotel is an imposing building located in Bandra and is right next to the Arabian Sea. The staff were so friendly and very well groomed. The ladies working there, looked stunning in their uniform.

The lobby is very open and spacious. There is also a bar with live music in the evening. The room was very stylish and had a very nice colour scheme. I had the view of the Arabian Sea and it was lovely. The bathroom was very nice and included a bath tub as well as a shower cubicle, with luxury towels and toiletries.

The concierge helped select an excellent restaurant, I would highly reccomend the Spice Tree if you're in Bandra. The evening meal was in Masala Bay and I was given a great reception by the staff working there and the food was simply the best I have eaten in India. I would happily go back just for the food. The chef actually prepared some of the dishes in front of me and it was very inspiring.

As you would expect from a Taj property it had a good business centre. The spa was lovely as was the swimming pool area, where you could shut yourself away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai.

This is a must visit area of Mumbai and the Taj Lands End is the place to stay.

When on work in Bombay, we usually stay at one of the 2 Taj hotels. This time, we were attending a travel conference in Lands End, hence the choice.

We were there over the fateful events that will change our lives forever - the terrorist attacks of Nov 26-28. While their sister hotel was besieged and their friends and colleagues under fire, the Lands End staff, led by their GM, put on a brave face and worked hard to secure the hotel, which too has a sea-access and a carcass of a hotel that was bombed in the earlier Mumbai attacks of March 12, 1993 and never recovered. Staff who stayed close-by freshened up and came back to relieve their colleagues who lived afar and couldnt brave going home under the circumstances. I saw the GM, Rohit Khosla and the Security Chief, Prashant Potkar, running between the entrance and other vunerable areas in an effort to secure them.

The kindest gesture was a glass of coconut water from a Bell Desk staff who just overhead me wish aloud for one.

I am very impressed by the hotel's braveface and will stay with again them in times to come.

Great hotel, outstanding service. While not in the best of locations for south Mumbai, the service and facilities make it highly reccomended. Excellent Indian food at Masala Bay. Superb 'Taj' service.

The hotel is not located in central (i.e. south) Mumbai (Colaba) but in a good location for business visits. The international airport (Chhatrapati), Bandra Kurla Complex and other business areas are easy to reach and you don't have to stay at a typcial airport hotel.
It is not an "old fashioned" style (like the Taj Mahal in Colaba district) but much more contemporary/modern. The staff is very friendly and responsive with a good appreciation for business traveller's needs. I had a Club room (similar to Hilton "Executive" and others) and this grants access to the Club Lounge with good breakfast and a cocktail time in the afternoon. The Club Lounge also is a good retreat to meet other (international) guests.
The "Pure" restaurant serves fully organic meals "International Style", which is nice but not so exhilarating, if you are an European traveller and more or less used to. Very good wine list with interesting selection from all over the world.
The "Masaly Bay" restaurant is a superb Indian restaurant where Indian cuisine is cooked on international level. Go for the "big set menu" which comes with all and everything of Indian cuisine. You will have a chance to taste almost every Indian cooking style, spices etc. Enjoyed it very much!
The lobby bar is a bit noisy (sometimes horrible "music" from CDs, live music is ok). Good "afternoon tea" is served in a classical British style (snadwiches, scones etc.).
Overall the stay was a very good experince.

I stayed here for business and a conference. The conference was held in the grand ball room so staying here made sense. The hotel itself is a little bit out of the way - which is good and bad. Good that you away from the bustle of the city when work's done, bad because it takes extra time to commute. The hotel is grand and luxurious. Service is good albeit lacking imagination. I happened to stay here during the night that the other landmark Taj hotel was terrorized (26/11/08) and I called the front desk a few times to be assured that all was well here. I was expecting a public announcement of sorts advising residents to stay in their room, etc. but I think the hotel took the necessary security arrangements instead.

I dined at the Masala Bay several times. Good Indian food- pricey - but hey this is a five star luxury property. Wait staff was kind of mechanized, which is one reason why I stated that service was 'unimaginative'. The breakfast buffet at the Vista was splendid. The spread of food was amazing and the authentic Indian breakfast dishes were very very nice.

I recently stayed in this hotel and loved it, just loved it. By mistake, I had booked a non-smoking room but on arriving there the hotel staff not only gave me a smoking room but also upgraded me!! The staff is very very helpful, the restaurants are excellent and the lobby is smiply amazing. If you want to stay in Mumbai, then this is place for you. Highly recommended.

  • Liked — the staff, the location and the rooms

I had a great stay at the Taj Lands End with the in-room dining experience being the highlight! I ordered in-room dining the first night I was at the hotel, and they brought up a table to the room that had an oven below it that kept the food nice and piping hot. The waiter laid out the table incl. a lit candle which added a fine touch to an otherwise boring in-room dining experience! It almost seemed as if I was in a classy restaurant rather than in my room. Their understanding of a guest's need showed up once again, the day we were checking out when their Chinese restaurant served us a fine meal in less than 15 min, since we were getting late for our flight. Keep it up, Taj!
