I doubt anyone could find a single fault with this hotel, the team, location, decor and service are all exceptional. The best aspect for me was the constant stream of surprise gifts I found on arrival back to my room daily, from flowers to skin products to a foot bath to jewellery. Beautiful special moments :) Thanks to the team...

Exactly as you'd expect a hotel this grand to be. Nothing over the top, just pure client service focus. All staff are super friendly and helpful, with no requirement too diffiuclt. Gym was well appointed, pool was a nice size. Pool area was lovely. Rooms were perfectly appointed with all the various lighting and amenities you'd expect. One pet peeve...

My first experience of the hotel was really not great, the staff didn't know anything about our booking when we arrived (very tired) and they had to scrabble around to find an extra room for our party. The rooms we booked were the starting range of the original palace rather than the 1970's tower and sadly they looked worn out...

What a stunning building, complemented beautifully by attentive, friendly service staff for whom nothing appeared to be a problem. A stay at the Taj is a very low-stress way to ease into the rich contrasts that define this great country. Highly recommended!

An amazing experience. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable and to make you feel special. Trying the two signature cocktails at the harbor bar is a must!!! This is a beautiful property. We were booked at the tower wing and the rooms were very modern. Next time I will try the palace wing as...

The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is very well located with views of the Gateway to India and the bay busy with boats and ferries from the Sea Lounge where we enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea.

We recently stayed at the Taj Palace and loved every minute of our stay in this beautiful hotel. There are two buildings, a newer tower and the original 1923 building. My preference was clearly the old world charm of the original hotel. There are lovely gardens a swimming pool, and ten excellent restaurants. This was truly an oasis of luxury...
