A peaceful haven in a wonderful bustling city.

From initial welcome to morning of departure we experienced superlative service from all members of staff. Club level is good value with afternoon tea including hot food. In the evening happy hour from 6 to 7:30 again includes hot food with canapes and good selection of alcoholic drinks.

Breakfast in the main restaurant consists of a wide variety of hot and cold foods to suit all tastes.
Swimming pool can get busy in the afternoon but plenty of. vacant sunbeds in the morning - no reserving with towels allowed as unattended towels on sunbeds removed after 20 mins. Pool staff very attentive and provide cold water throughout the day.
This was not our first visit and we are returning late December to further enjoy yet another stay at the Taj.

SPECIAL place with excellent hospitality

Wonderful stay at the Palace!!

Every detail was excellent - simply cant understand the tiny handful of reviewers that give this place only one star - bizarre!! Unrivalled piece of history for India with the Brits leaving through the Gate of India back in 1948. High tea was quaint and fun in the Sea Lounge starting from 3.30pm. Some good shops although I had some shirts made up in <24 hours by Kings just round the back of the hotel - the tailor and owner Sunny was fantastic and recommend him. Tour of the hotel was good and nothing seemed too much trouble - well done to the GM and I believe about his 2000 staff!!!
