The history of Mumbai and The Taj Mahal Palace are dramatically intertwined. The hotel is Mumbai’s first harbour landmark (built 21 years before the Gateway of India) and the site of the first licensed bar in the city. For more than a century, the Taj has played an intrinsic part in the life of the city, hosting Maharajas, dignitaries and eminent personalities from across the globe. Today it is a Leading Hotel of the World and favorite destination for discerning travellers.
Overlooking the Gateway of India with a panoramic view of the bay, every one of the 560 rooms are the perfect blend of rich history and modern convenience. In the 1970s The Taj expanded to open the doors of the adjacent Tower wing. In contrast to the Palace wing, the Tower wing is newer and orderly, with a combination of European and Indian architecture.
The Taj Mahal Place, Mumbai has some of the most sought after restaurants in India. Guests are treated to diverse cooking styles and the most imaginative culinary traditions from India, Europe, the Middle East and the Orient.
