“Beautiful Recap of the olden days and new comforts”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

It is after many years, almost a decade, i am revisiting this place. But the precision with which the traditions and ambience have been maintained is seen to be believed. Well appointed staff, excellent courteous service.. Great location with the sea breeze in and out everywhere. The open courtyard with views of the beach will soothen any tense person. And very tasty delicious food

Room Tip: Ask for a sea viewing room

One of the older hotels which is known to have been a landmark in the past, a glory which it has not retained. Needs to renovate rooms, bathrooms and public areas. The staff was friendly and seems to have been there for a long time. Good location in Juhu area.

Dear Qasim Jafri,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.

We have recently renovated the Coffee Shop, the BAR and some of our premium Suites. Most of the rooms on the first and fourth floor have been partially renovated. The carpets have been replaced by wooden flooring.

Sun-n-Sand Mumbai enjoys high occupancy throughout the year, due to this the Guest rooms need to be renovated in a phased manner.

Old and well used bed rooms, very basic, staff not interested in listening, only interested in making money from having private parties. I have an issue with the hotel and have asked the customer manager to contact me and as yet not.

Loved this hotel. Great location on beach, lovely pool, spa and beauty salon: very friendly staff. Two modestly price shops selling all you could ever want, plus one selling delectable mousses and cakes from all over the world. The greatest surprise was the generous FREE drinks lounge with delicious hot vegetarian snacks open between 7.30 and 8.30pm. A great choice of restaurants, and the best Indian style breakfasts I have ever had in a hotel. I shall certainly return. Only downside was internet access and losing three and a half hours of my last precious day in India trying to check in on line, but more to do with Jet Airways site than the hotel.
A fantastic wedding was being set up on the day that, sadly, I left. Good luck for the next 50 years!

Room Tip: Worth paying for a room overlooking beach and sea.

Our stay at Sun n Sand Juhu was great! Our check-in and Check-out was smooth. Staff were helpful and would answer all questions with a smile!

Location is great. Food in Aqua, their 24/7 coffee shop is great. Value-wise as well, it was good!

The only issue we had was in the WiFi connectivity and access. Perhaps they could work on that. However with or without that, it was a great stay overall!

This smaller, more personalized hotel on the beach is a sentimental favorite of mine. Have stayed there countless times and prefer the atmosphere much more to it's glitzy neighbor down the road, JW Marriott.

The hotel has recently undergone extensive renovation. There are several types of room with the nicest being the sea facing rooms. (Only the sea facing rooms on the 4th floor currently have a bathtub.) All rooms have amenities including minibar, safe, all bathroom amenities, fresh fruit, bottled water, a cookie jar of cookies, newspaper daily. Internet access is available, but costly. The executive rooms have a separate sitting area with a couch and flat screen TV, and a large bathroom with separate tub and shower. The sea view from the executive rooms is only a partial sea view. All rooms have very comfortable beds and room darkening curtains, so you better set your alarm if you have an early appointment!

There is a 24 hour coffee shop, a Kebab hut outside by the pool, a nice bar, a more formal restaurant, and drink and snack service poolside. Also onsite is an excellent hair salon, fitness center overlooking the pool and beach, business center, and spa.

The hotel has changed considerably in 10 years - especially the prices - but I don't think it can be considered a 5 star hotel.

Prices can vary according to season so it's a good idea to keep checking. Rates usually include round-trip airport transfers, cocktail hour, and an okay (mostly Indian) buffet breakfast.

** Update Feb. 2012: Prices have gotten considerably higher and a much better value and nicer hotel is the Novotel (next door).

Unique Qualities: The staff are wonderful and enjoying the sunsets over the sea or watching one of the many Indian wedding receptions happening is really beautiful. There's a good chance you'll spot a Bollywood celebrity or two.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us on Tripadvisor.

I would like to bring to your notice that we charge only Rs 250 plus taxes for unlimited high speed internet at the hotel. Some of the hotels in our vicinity charge atleast three times higher than us. Sun-n-Sand Mumbai also offers Happy Hours to all its guests irrespective of the room type reserved. This facility/service is not offered by most nearby hotels.

The accommodation rates at the hotel have definitely increased over the years. However this is the result of increasing expenses. Besides the prices vary based on the demand - supply situation at the hotel and the city. We have a dynamic pricing in place and our guests can avail of various discounted promotional prices depending upon the booking window and length of stay.

Inspite of some new hotels having opened in Juhu, Sun-n-Sand Mumbai continues to retain its charm. The hotel has completed 50 years of successful operations this year and has been certified as a five star property by the local governing body consistently.

Wow what a hotel this place is. We came here in 2005 stayed for three days. The room was great. The breakfast was fit for a king, a large variety of your choice to eat.
The best high light of the hotel was at 19:00 we used to go down stairs to this exclusive room where there is unlimited alcohol served and ourderves. Even the waiters were dressed in a colonial style. Have to say I have never experience this before, absolutely brilliant. Oh Forgot to mention it was for only one hour exactly, soon as it hit 20:00 they stop serving. So if they still do this theme get in there promptly at 19:00 or the seat will be gone. Well done S n S.
