Upon entering our room (we booked the...

This is truly the place to stay in Mumbai to get a close experience to this vibrant city. Had a room with a sea view overseeing Gate of India. Easy to walk around out side (even took a run in the heat). Fantastic service at the top level.

Well we had heard and seen TV programmes about the Palace. It did not disappoint. Security is tight, which is reassuring. Staff were so professional. Our room in the tower on the 9th floor looked out over the gateway to India, just magical. Food and drinks are not cheap but hey this really is 5 star. A great start to...

The Taj Palace in Mumbai lives up to its name and reputation. My friend and I had two marvelous days there feeling as if we were princesses. Our every need was thoughtfully attended to...including the travel desk which went to great trouble to help us change a flight. The rooms are beautiful, authentic and well appointed. The breakfast overwhelms with...

We had another amazing stay at the Taj, we took friends for the first time to celebrate birthday & retirement on arrival the room was full of balloons, flowers, foot baths and a cake, what a welcome. We look forward to our next stay. only one problem our room was opposite the lifts so we found it a little noisy.
