Security is extra tight, as the Taj was the site of a terrorist bombing in What's the crowd like there? Well-heeled internationals and well-to-do Indian families. But some parts of the hotel are off-limits to non-guests, so you quickly leave the bustle of the lobby behind. How about the rooms?
There are 55 rooms and suites between the recently refurbished old palace building and a modern tower wing stay in the palace if you can! Every room is decorated differently, drawing from Mogul, European, and Anglo-Indian styles. At the high end there are some fascinatingly quirky ones, including the Ravi Shankar suite, decorated with photos of the Beatles in India: George Harrison took lessons from the sitar master here.
We were in an eclectically decorated three-room suite in the palace, directly overlooking the Gateway arch—a magical view, as you watch the sun set on the Arabian Sea beyond it.
Take the vintage elevator up to view it from the top. While over there, peek into the giant ballroom, too. What else about the hotel is memorable? The Taj has the best pool in Mumbai. Especially after a sweaty day of touring the city, returning to this gleaming blue oval—surrounded by pink and orange color-blocked chaises and a gin cart that makes the rounds—is just plain heavenly.
The pool area also has a full-service restaurant, Aquarius, with afternoon sitar music. In the evenings it becomes a cocktail bar. How about the food? What else stands out? The service here was impeccable and consistent—warm and thoughtfully attentive, without being overbearing. We arrived in the early morning, and we were installed for tea in a jewel box of a lounge until our room was ready. A short time before dinner, a butler showed up at our door to give us foot baths in copper bowls full of flower petals.
Bottom line: worth it, and why? Oh, percent.
