Approaching the hotel one might think to be entering a construction site as the outside of the site is not finished yet. After friendly check in I went to my room and was stunned by firstly the luxury in general, then the abundant technical gadgets in the room, the stylish bathroom and rest of the room, but ultimately when opening the curtains and viewing the inside of the hotel from my balcony. The view is a huge indoor arena with a lagoon and tropical garden in the centre with various lounges and live orchestra. There is nothing that reminds you that Bombay is just outside. I have never seen something similar. As it was late and I was tired from a long haul flight, I nevertheless tried to sleep and would suggest ear-plugs as the entertainment although not exaggerated still is perceivable through the closed balcony door. On the balcony by the way it is permitted to smoke what I appreciated. After few hours of sleep I took breakfast at the cafe. Good quality, note also the amazing aquarium there. A day later I had dinner at the Indian restaurant, and it was absolutely excellent (took Aloo Gobi, chicken, lamb, lentils). What was positive: the room was fully equipped with everything I appreciate including coffee maker, complimentary mineral water, ironing board, large flat screen TV with BBC World and CNN, slippers, etc. but it takes about one hour to get acquainted with all the gadgets, by the way all worked. Laundry service very efficient, my washing picked up within few minutes and returned on time well done. The newspaper Times of India delivered early morning. Positive is also a smokers lounge (Diwine) just at the ground floor café. What I missed at the hotel was any reference to India and/or the local Bombay culture, except the Indian restaurant and of course the personnel that was friendly and helpful without exception. As my time was limited, I couldn't visit all of the hotel (e.g. business centre, swimming pool, shops, etc.) , so maybe next time. Forgot to mention free of charge! pick up at airport with large name board at arrival and water offered in car. Also transfer back to airport on time and also free of charge, remember to be at airport at least two hours before departure due to extremely long queues. To conclude, I can recommend this hotel to everyone who appreciates full service, modern infrastructure and friendly staff.

The hotel takes you by surprise by the mere grandeur of space. The rooms are extremely spacious and the balcony attached to the rooms is definitely the best part. It gives a complete view of the hotel and you feel transported to a different city all together. Just chill over a cup of coffee in your balcony and you will feel totally relaxed..its in the city yet away from it...

Full marks for decor and ambience..simply loved the little boat placed in the waterbody next to Ocean restaurant.

The food is to die for specially at Namak. The staff is extremely hospitable. If you love global cuisine, please drop in at Mabruk for the best lebanese food. Breakfast menu at Earthplate is extensive, so take a tour before you start.

Extremely kid friendly..all necessary items related to a toddler were provided immediately to make the stay with child easy.

Sahara Star has a personality to it..its not like mundane high ceiling 5 star hotels which all look the same.The gift pack from forest essential which was sent across in the room was a cute gesture and added a personalized touch with GM's letter.

Room Tip: choose higher floor for a spectacular view...

Decor & Ambeince :

The decor is extremely elegant and classy. The view from the balcony is stunning. Its like a mini city and that one would love to explore.

Staff :

They are extremely hospitable and approachable.They are always so vigilant and take utmost care of a customer's satisfaction.The detailed information that every restaurant mananger provided us with,showed their extreme passion and dedication towards the particular restaurant.

Room & Service :

I stepped inside the room and fell in love with it! The room is extremely cosy and welcoming.The management has included the minutest requirement an customer can ask for.

The personalised letters from Mr.Sodhi is a very humble gesture to make the customer feel at home and ensure one that Hotel Sahara Star staff is at your service and you will be provided with the best!

Food:

The food at Namak & Earth Plate are delicious. Namak ,just nailed the non- veg starters.They are so tasty and well cooked. The food at Namak is alluring.

The Forrest Essential gifts were really adorable & thoughtful. The best travel kit that every person would love to keep in one's kitty.

We had a business dinner at Sahara Star's Indian specialty restaurant 'Namak'. The food was very nice, specially the lobster was amazingly fresh. I liked the whole concept of Indian fine dining at the restaurant.

Overall rating is very good.

With a little work the Sahara Star would boost its rating quite a bit. The staff is great; helpful, attentive and gracious. The huge covered atrium with extensive well maintained gardens, pool, fountains, restaurants, shops and seating areas is quite the place to relax; almost a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai’s streets, traffic and over abundance of residents. Also, the rooms are quite spacious and well equipped with comfortable balconies overlooking the atrium and its activities. The hotel is building a major addition doubling its facilities and modernizing some of the public areas. As far as improvements, the Sahara Star really needs to work on their menu and the quality of food served, especially at what many would consider somewhat exorbitant prices. Over our 5 day stay, my wife and I ate at their restaurants on 3 occasions and ordered room service twice and were uniformly disappointed with portions served and taste. Lastly, the existing hotel facility could use a short term facelift with replaced curtains at the top of the atrium and new carpets throughout the public areas. That being said, I would generally recommend the hotel because you get quite a bit for their reasonable room rates.

Beautiful 5 star hotel by Sahara Group. Visited number of times, for lunch, dinner, coffee and even stay over. Never disappointed with any of the services. Choice of 6-7 restaurants with all different cuisines. Amazingly designed with lovely views all around. the Ocean restaurant allows you to have Oriental cuisine right next to the aquarium- which is apparently one of the biggest aquariums in India. You will never have a dull moment here.
If lucky, you can even witness their laser show which take place in the evening.
Food Quality- Super !
Rooms- Absolutely Modern !

Experience- 10/10. Must visit when in Mumbai
