I have visited the Taj many times over the years since we first spent Christmas there in 1980. I have many happy memories and it is an iconic place for which I have great affection.

A incredible hotel with the most fantastic service. We travel a lot & I can honestly say that this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff just cant do enough for you. We stayed in the original building on the 3rd floor & our room had a terrace overlooking the pool. The room was exceptional.

Our cruise stopped in Mumbai and had to visit the Taj Mahal Palace after watching the TV series. It was around a 20 minute walk from the cruise terminal, well actually 20 minutes on way back over 90 minutes to get there as we took a wrong turning. The hotel is stunning and could only dream of saying there for...

Wowww! What can I say... This hotel is definitely a must for Mumbai and even it can even be the sole reason for visiting Mumbai. It is absolutely fantastic! The location is absolutely the best. All of the restaurants and food were perfect. Our room and the decoration of the shared areas (especially the pool side) were fabulous. Service, staff...
