Taj Mahal, Mumbai India

Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, Mumbai, India

It’s been one hundred and ten years since this grand dame of India first opened – hosting Maharajas, diplomats, celebrities, movers and shakers and adventurers alike – and it’s stood strong like a jewel in the Maharaja’s crown, despite some testing times. The management and staff shares the hotel’s resolve, bringing excellence in service to a whole other level. The Taj Mahal Mumbai, like its sister Taj palaces across the country, is the benchmark for classic luxury, bringing together old-world, colonial and modern India. Vaulted ceilings, onyx columns, crystal chandeliers, a dramatic stairway and walls and walls of art, brought theater and color to our stay.
