Taj Lands End
What We Love
- A modern sensibility: lots of shiny marble, leather seating and dark wood in the design
- Fantastic views of the ocean and the city from oversize sea-facing rooms
- In the relatively calm, uncrowded suburb of Bandra (a favorite of celebrities), yet connected to South Mumbai via the new Bandra-Worli Sea Link Bridge
- The swimming pool, surrounded by palms and with views of the Arabian Sea and office towers in the distance
- Taj Club rooms come with perks like daily breakfast, a one-way airport transfer, free bottle of wine and access to the Taj Club Lounge
What To Know
- This is the new India — the hotel feels contemporary and modern
- A mix of business travelers, wealthy families on holiday and the occasional Bollywood star create an interesting lobby scene
- In heavy traffic it can take an hour or more to reach sights like the Gateway of India and other attractions in Colaba, at the southern end of the city
- As at most luxury hotels in India, security is tight; before entering the lobby, guests are required to walk through metal detectors, and bags are searched
- The hotel can arrange for cars, but they come at a premium; it’s cheaper to hail a taxi on the street
- The hotel was last renovated in 2009
- Free WiFi
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
We recently finished a one-week stay at the beautiful Taj Lands End in Mumbai. We are fairly frequent “regulars” at this hotel over a period of many years, and view it as our hotel of choice in this vibrant and often chaotic city. The peaceful location is a huge plus, and we so enjoy our rooms with the full water view looking out over the Arabian Sea. Ms. Swati Thakur always takes such wonderful care of us, and overall the service standards are extremely high. She is an example of the wonderful care and hospitality that the hotel extends to its guest, and represents the hotel in the finest way. We have frequently visited the Vista casual dining restaurant and Masala Bay Indian restaurant, and love the food at both.
The reason I have to deduct one star, unfortunately, is the hotel’s policy of holding outside corporate events in the garden area adjacent to the main hotel building. These events, and there have many over the years we have been staying at the hotel, feature extremely loud amplified music that continues well into the late night hours. This past Saturday it was something called “Our Day”, and the loud thumping music started early in the morning around 9:30 with sound checks as the event was being set up. At times the music was so loud in the evening that the windows of our room were vibrating to the pounding beat of the music. There does not seem to ever be a representative of the hotel monitoring noise levels at any time, so it seems that anything goes at these events. I would suggest that management perhaps take a look at their policy of holding these events outdoors with such loud amplified music that disturbs the comfort of paying guests, many of whom come from all over the world, are jet lagged and exhausted, and may want to rest or sleep. I realize that these events are big money makers for the hotel, but the peace and comfort of guests really should come first, not loud corporate parties. These outdoor events with music as loud as a rock concert really are not befitting the class and elegance that a true 5 star hotel should be displaying, and I have never experienced a similar situation at any other elite hotel anywhere else in the world in my extensive travels.
All that having been said, this is still a great hotel, and we look forward to our next visit.
As always, an excellent relaxing stay for a day. Great service and hospitality and a splendid view of the open sea from the room. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. We ordered some Chinese dinner in the room which was a great experience.
We stayed here for celebrating a birthday. The best room and services were arranged to make sure we have a good time. Cake, balloons , Happy hours, high tea...name it and it was a yes! The best thing was the view. We had a room overlooking the Bandra Sea-link. This was the best place for celebrations. Staff is amazing. They made sure we have a fantastic stay. The check in check out was very smooth. It’s a wonderful place to stay and specially if you are celebrating your special day.
A day's visit to the renowned Taj Lands End was a perfect start to our honeymoon trip. The reception staff is very welcoming and accommodating.
Most courteous staff in Mumbai Hotels and very well groomed. The bell, desk, the Concierge, the security staff all are very polite.
The restaurant requires more staffing during rush hours to pay more attention to all the guests equally.
Beautiful sea view from room 1409 and clean swimming pool.
Housekeeping staff was very courteous and many thanks to Miss Vijaya in Housekeeping for preparing our bed and room with rose petals. The hotel also gave a complimentary bouquet and chocolate cake to celebrate our wedding. Very sweet of them.
Thank You Taj Lands End and the staff and complete team.
Thank you Miss Vijaya
