Dressed in beige marble and dark brown wood, with mustard and silver accents, the Shangri-La Mumbai offers a refined take on Asian modernity. Spire-topped lamps in the bedrooms and hanging silver lanterns in the lobby add a mystical touch, and patterns abound as the brand’s signature motif appears on the marble floors and as lattice screen paneling in the hotel corridors. The lobby greets visitors with lavish flower bouquets, a sweeping marble staircase and two massive silver-framed mirrors, each filled with alcoves that house 20 chandeliers.
Bed and Bath
The residential lobbies and bedrooms are more sedate, carpeted in shades of gray and mustard and wallpapered in gray silk. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer expansive views of Mumbai, and the rooms comfortably house kingsize beds, desks, small love seats and coffee tables topped with fresh fruit. The supportive mattresses, goosedown pillows and free WiFi make lounging easy (though the lack of bedside electrical outlets is disappointing), and the open-plan bathrooms (with tubs) feel airy and spacious. Framed panels of Rajasthani tikri work decorate the walls, and in the bathrooms, touches of Indian luxury shine through in the etched mirrors and ornate tissue boxes.
Highlights at Seven, the buffet-style restaurant, include sushi, steamed dim sum and fresh Asian soups. There is a special kids menu as well as freshly spun cotton candy for dessert, while such Asian options as congee and South Indian fare appear at breakfast. Spend the morning reclining on one of the deck loungers beside the tranquil tree-lined pool, an oasis of calm that is a rarity in Mumbai. Gaze out over the city from the sunny gym, then indulge in a massage at Chi, The Spa. The lounge bar, Ekayana, caters to business more than pleasure, but the live piano music makes it a pleasant stop. And Li Bai, a Chinese-inspired bar served potent cocktails from a multilevel cellar.
How to Get There
Delayed flight, late night check in, hungry traveler and tired guest comes down to dinner. The worst you can get. The spread looked too much, everything over the top. Seeing me sitting there Chef very kindly walked to my table and asked if he could make something for me. What was I in the mood for? That question and the way asked shifted something and next thing I was sipping some wine while he put together some sushi for me. It was a simple, light lovely dinner. I got a good sleep and woke up well rested fresh to work through a busy day.
This was my third stay at the St Regis in Lower Parel.
Always a pleasure to meet such warm hearted, dedicated and professional staff making you feel welcome. Want to especially commend the Butler Kaushik Khadtare, the Chef Irshad Shaikh, the baker and the professional chia masala tea preparer (sorry forgot their names but attached there picture).
All the staff whether room attendent, butlers in the dining room, to the Bell Captain,check-in and check out-staff, simply everyone were one of a kind and exceptionally warm people.
The St Regis should be honored and proud to have such staff causing the guests never wanting to stay in any other hotel.
In my 46 years of working in the travel business I have never ever incountered such outstanding service.
Hope to visit again in the near future.
Please relay my thanks to your staff.
We spent the end of our honeymoon at the St Regis Mumbai and it was a great way to finish. The hotel and the service - total luxury, we were blown away by the hospitality from Shawn our Butler all the way through to the Chefs in the restaurants.
The breakfast buffet is incredible, anything from sushi to donuts and the chefs come around with small tasters which is a great touch.
We also took part in a special tour to a local spice market with the Head Chef and this was truly one of our highlights of Mumbai, thank you to the team for a great experience we won't forget.
The Butler show each evening at 6.30pm shouldn't be missed!
The rooftop bar is a great space and worth a visit but isn't associated to the hotel so you cannot put the bill to your room (which we found out and had to go back to our room to get money).
The rooms are great (we didn't find the bed very comfy but that's personal opinion), food is incredible, the pool area is lovely and great to have the mall next door.
The attention to detail and service sets this hotel apart - I'd give more than 5*'s if I could! Would love to come back soon.
