  • A treasure-trove of historic memorabilia

  • The neighboring iconic Gateway of India

  • Mughal-Gothic grand architecture

With stunning views over the Arabian Sea and located just next to the Gateway of India monument, the Taj Mahal Palace stands as one of Mumbai's iconic structures in its own right. It is the flagship property of the Taj Group and successfully blends old world charm with exceptional levels of style, comfort and service.

Its 560 rooms and suites are tastefully decorated with many housing antiques and artwork. The Tower Wing, built in 1973 by American architect Melton Bekker, houses 275 rooms offering a mix of European style and Indian elegance with views overlooking the city or the Gateway of India and the Arabian Sea. Taj Club rooms feature rosewood floors and high ceilings and are equipped with a Sony Bravia home theater system, luxurious Italian marbled bathrooms with a bathtub and a separate shower cubicle (with hydro massage hand showers and overhead rain showers).

The hotel has seven restaurants and two bars. It also houses the Taj Group’s flagship Jiva Spa, an outdoor and indoor swimming pool. You can take to the seas in the hotel's yacht with all the modern comforts you need including three air conditioned bedrooms, a salon complete with a bar and entertainment system. The cruise takes you across to the periphery of Elephanta Island to view medieval period caves.
