Wonderful 2 night stay
Reviewed 21 hours ago

We stayed in the tower block with a view to Gateway of India.

The room was really lovely and a lot of thought has gone into the design.....everything works together flawlessly.

It is a very busy hotel and I think sometimes the staff are a little bit anonymous although very efficient and professional but then you find someone really friendly and your opinion changes.

The pool area and gym are first class with a large pool you can actually swim in and a great gym.

The breakfast buffet was the best we had during our month in India.

We ate at Souks one night which was great.

I would highly recommend this hotel and just wish we had longer than 2 nights.....maybe another time!

Highly, highly recommended

An Amazing Hotel

We absolutely loved everything about this hotel.

The staff are very polite and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.

There was a lot of choice of good food at breakfast and you were never hurried to finish, it was very relaxing.

Lunch times and a couple of nights we ate outside near the pool and the choice of food was also very good.

We loved our room and the staff on our floor who took very good care of us, I can't fault them for anything they were so friendly and eager to please.

It is place I would love to visit again......hopefully one day.

Wonderful from start to finish

Beautiful property, great restaurants, and greater staff! This is a haven of sophistication and civilization. The sanctuary of the pool was our favourite part, with snacks and drinks! The rooms in the tower are not huge, but perfectly adequate. The array of restaurants is impressive, from Indian to Japanese! We really enjoyed Masala Kraft, a taste of true India. The Harbour Bar is snug and friendly, with a splendid array of gins! I first stayed in the Taj 40 years ago, and it has expanded and regenerated to remain relevant to the present day, whilst paying homage to its incredible heritage! Highly recommended.

Stop in for Tea

Visited the Elephanta Caves and on the way back stopped at the Taj for tea. Great historic hotel where numerous royalty and celebrities have stayed. Thing you can even do a tour of the hotel. High tea is excellent and a step back in time.
