“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Sahara Star is one of the best hotels i have visited. Being a resident of Mumbai, I didn't stay at any of the rooms, but visited their restaurants and also had occasions celebrated here. Their Sahara pranam is very welcoming; it gives one a cordial feeling. We recently celebrated a christening party at Sahara Star which was very well-organised. The mouth-watering delicacies and rhythmic tracks made for a tremendous celebration. The restaurants are also one of the best in the city and provide a wide range of delicacies. The ambience of the place is simply outstanding. I would say, it’s designed to perfection and is well-maintained. The hotel's magnificence blended with Indian culture symbolises hospitality and stands deeply rooted in the varied traditions of India. Strategically located near Mumbai's domestic airport, Sahara Star provides unmatched experience when it comes to service.

A very nice hotel from the in-side. The place is still going extensive renovation but it does not effect the current property and rooms. Very good dining options from the Indian Restaurant / Kebab Place / Coffee Shop / Mediterranean Cusine. I love the morning breakfast spread. Its almost infinite. Very courteous staff, Nice rooms great location for some catching early morning flight as Bombay traffic is bad.

Whoever designed this hotel deserves an award. It is a piece of art !

I visited the restaurants at the Sahara Star, on the recommendation of a colleague. I was staying at a different hotel nearby, so I can't comment on the hotel aspect, but the concept is amazing: all the hotel rooms look out over the oasis in the middle, which is covered by a tent roof. The air is cooled to the perfect level of temperature and humidity. The elevators know how to look sexy when they're not being used (they've been made into a feature rather than a function). The restaurants are all built around this lagoon, or oasis, and there are trees, plants, water features and a laser show. If I were staying in Mumbai again, this would be high on my list of places to stay.

It is also very convenient, being right next to the domestic terminal of the airport, and a short drive from the international terminal. The traffic around the hotel is as bad as the rest of Mumbai, but I didn't feel unsafe at any time. Staff were polite and helpful.

It's hard to add any more to the great reviews of Sahara Star. It's one of the best hotels I've stayed in, and certainly the best I've stayed at in India. The staff are all extremely helpful and welcoming, which makes a lot of difference when you are travelling alone on business.

Contrary to some other reviews, I quite liked the little swimming pool. It is narrow, but you can swim laps round the central flower display, and it's quite nice swimming beneath real plant leaves with fountains playing nearby. Joe at the Spa is very helpful.

The only downside of Sahara Star was my room (standard) which did not have any external windows. The interior garden is very beautiful, but it's just a little claustrophobic hearing, and not being able to see, the monsoon rain.

Location is awesome, right next to the airport and bang on the western express highway taxi is always available . Rooms are spacious. When you stand in the balcony and look at the center dome area which has around 7 restaurants the view id mind blowing. Its one of the most lively hotel I have ever stayed in. Just one tip while booking ask for a room near to the elevator otherwise you will reeeeeaaaalllllly have to walk a lot.

The rooms are well designed but the distance of rooms from the newaest lift is something to look out for, the room service was OK and have to call out thrice for housekeeping to make up my room, the prices are quite OK considering the location and aminities, from outside the hotel looks like some haunted palace and not being done since ages believe from the time Sahara took it over from Centaur Group.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are more airy and with ample lights
