Taj Lands End
Tucked away in Bandra – right on the Arabian sea – this is one of the best hotels in Mumbai. Mainly attracting stealth-wealth types, their glitzy girlfriends and business travellers who pack into the super-chic brand new club rooms, there are plenty of reasons for leisure travellers to stay here, too.
Rooms offer fantastic views of the futuristic Bandra-Worli sealink and swaying palm trees while on-floor butlers will take care of you once in your room. Yoga bunnies can partake of one-on-one classes with the resident ‘Doctor’ and for those less bendy there are splendid outdoors pool with tropical bar.
The luxury store Khazana on the same floor as Ming Yang and Masala Bay (where chefs cook up some of the tastiest Indian food in the world) offers a range of different handicrafts, textiles and furnishings ‘from the interior of India’. The prices are high but the quality is second to none. Wrapping things up is impeccable service.
