Wonderful hospitality. Esp Rina Sheth from guest relation team is fabulous . She took great care of us making our anniversary so special. Imtiaz, shahid from gym, whole spa team Nikhil , Yogesh from pool side the whole taj team is very warm and commendable. They all made us feel so comfortable just like a family. Taj has awesome restaurants like wasabi, shamiana, masala craft , golden dragon they all are our favourite choices in dining. It is one of the finest hotel we have visited throughout the world.

Incredibly skilled staff making the stay perfect. Afternoon tea overlooking the gate of India is a must and the hotel breathes history. Quite smoking area in the courtyard. Sure to come back for a longer stay.

Our child s first experience at The Taj - unpleasant
Reviewed 2 days ago

On Good Friday bearing the hot Bombay sun we took our 18 month old son to experience a boat ride around the Gateway of India and hospitality at the Taj- a childhood ritual for my husband and me. We reached around 12 - 12 30 gave our car for valet and made a reservation for lunch. The hotel was really busy with weddings and guests. Realising that we had left our son's cap in the car and requested your security in charge to bring just that for us instead of bringing back the car. He was very co operative and even asked us to sit in the lobby (which we didn't do) and waited for 20 minutes. When it finally came and I thanked him and left. Another guy at the gate,unfortunately didn't take his name said we cannot leave the premises until we took the car. We explained the entire situation to him about our lunch reservation, the missing cap and the gateway. He agreed after much pursuaion. When we were at the Gateway we were shocked to see that he and the valet driver had followed us there and told us that if we were taking the boat ride we would have to take our car. Disgusted with this behaviour and apathy towards an infant we waited another half an hour.
Having done my dissertation on Customer service and Value in The Indian Hospitality sector during my Master's in the UK I was extremely shocked to see this behaviour. We celebrate all our special occasions with the group and have always been delighted. Two staff representing the brand. Unfortunately the one we ll take away is the negative experience that too for such a small issue

Quite literally: "Superb" in every respect!

We stayed in the Palace, not the Tower. The greeting was warm and so personal; the room was beautiful and modern; the service is absolutely brilliant and every single member of the very large staff is on the lookout to find a way to add to your comfort and enjoyment of your stay. It was an amazing experience! And, on top of that, the location is great.

Wonderful and luxurious

We stayed at the Taj 11 years ago,since then the tower wing has been added to form a complete and wonderful hotel.
It is historic imposing and iconic and the setting and location are breathtaking. The gardens and pool area are tantric
The service is faultless and is delivered by staff who you feel have a real concern to male sure that you fully enjoy the Taj experience .
I know I am running out of superlatives so to finish it’s a truly wonderful experience .
