“Built by Mr Tata in 1903, The Taj has hosted Maharajas and Viceroys, rock stars, Hollywood stars and Heads of State. India felt devastated by the terrorist attack in 2008, but after a two-year refurbishment the hotel emerged a brighter jewel than ever. Great interiors, significant art, total luxury and the prettiest garden and pool you’ll find in any city. Wasabi is rated one of the world’s top 50 restaurants, and there are plenty of others to choose from. Glorious.”

“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 favourite destination for discerning business travellers.
A treasure-trove of invaluable memorabilia, there is a story to tell behind every pillar, a landmark deal in every boardroom, and a storied celebration under every awning. Come be a part of the legend.”
