How to Get There
After a couple of weeks volunteering in Kerala knee deep in water, I decided to spoil myself by flying north to Mumbai and staying in one of its finest 5* establishments on the Queens Necklace. There are quite a few luxury hotels in Nariman Point and I guess I chose one of the best with regards to comfort, cleanliness and in room facilities but for everything The Trident excels in, it unfortunately lacks in atmosphere.
Yes my room was perfect with all sorts of gadgets, sea views, electric blinds including those on the glass wall in the giant bathroom so as you could still see the tv and the full wall window views whilst in the shower - like WHY?
I was on the 20 something floor and yes the views were amazing right across the Queens necklace bay to Malabar Hill, but really, how long does one stay in their room on just a 3 night visit.
There were a couple of restaurants to choose from but they were too big and lacking warmth and in my opinion souless. The hotel bar was dark and without windows and like most 5* hotels in Mumbai, only serves you half beers at extortionate prices which was good in a way as it forced one to eat and drink elsewhere.
The Trident is also attached to The Oberoi hotel by a stairway so as you can eat and drink there too but again, it’s just another show of wealth which again after a couple of weeks slumming it in the floods of Kerala, just didn’t sit right with me. Maybe that was part of my issue along with so much poverty on every other corner in Mumbai.
Like everything else the pool too was manned and spotless and service was of course perfect 5* throughout, especially if you’re western. Some folk will absolutely love The Trident and well they should but I guess everyone to their own.
Trident properties across India have been the most consistent ones in terms of making guests feel welcome. The Nariman point staff went beyond, ensuring that stay with our baby was comfortable. The chef came out to meet us at the check in desk to take requests for baby food! Special thanks to the lovely and courteous staff at the desks and restaurant (Frangipani).
The strength of this property is for sure the staff, people on ground are fantastic. Everything goes very smooth and the rooms are very comfortable, I really liked the fact that they stock the rooms with options like nuts & apples. Well equipped in-room bar options and good view of the Sea. The only thing to improve is the weight of the bathrobes, they are huge and heavy. The front desk took care of allocating a room with no noise.
On my visit to Mumbai, I spent one night in Trident. It’s easy to locate with Arabian Sea right in front of it in south Bombay . The lobby of the hotel is huge and the staff is very professional . The rooms are spacious and prompt service . You can expect everything you want to get ready in the room .A very comfortable stay, they even have rooms which allow smoking .
Beautiful hotel at the end of marine drive and looking out at the Arabian sea (albeit polution obscures view). Beautiful interior and high standards but service was not as attentive as that experienced in the golden triangle. Felt like any other major city hotel in this regard. Restaurant menu good but seriously overpriced. Better value for money going out to a restaurant.
