The Oberoi Mumbai
Located on Mumbai’s southern tip and at the heart of Nariman Point, the Oberoi Mumbai stands out on the coastal skyline, overlooking the home of Bollywood with the National Centre of Performing Arts being just a stone’s throw away. It’s striking position on the Arabian Sea shoreline provides magnificent views over India’s cosmopolitan hub and financial capital, and the sweeping curve of Marine Drive, also known as the ‘Queens Necklace’.
The Oberoi’s lifting structure is a prime example of modern architecture, and whilst having the most fashionable address in Mumbai it is considered one of the best hotels in this busy metropolis. Whether it’s your first time in Mumbai, or indeed India, having just stepped off the plane or you’re returning from a busy day exploring India’s largest city, the calming and familiar smell of Tuberose and Jasmine circulating the atrium lobby is bound to ignite your senses and rejuvenate and relax your body. Natural daylight is exposed through the tall windows and the clean and pure interior is combined with original art, natural greenery, contemporary seating and sculptural water features with a striking red grand piano in the lobby's centre that simply can’t be missed.
The Oberoi discreetly houses a total of 287 sophisticated rooms including 73 suites with views either overlooking the Arabian Sea or the dazzling city lights. Each space has been carefully designed to avoid over-indulgent décor, allowing guests to find comfort and tranquillity whilst they unwind. Mother-of-pearl cabinets and dark oak floors are tied together with touches of silk in the upholstery, and large double-glazed windows frame the views, whilst blocking out Mumbai’s resounding soundtrack. Our favourite room is the Executive Suite with Ocean View with its spacious living room, comfortable king-sized master bedroom and a spectacular free-standing bathtub.
Take yourself out of the city without really leaving it and enjoy a signature Oberoi spa treatment at the Spa or take in the 360 views from the rooftop swimming pool. Rouse your taste buds with international dishes at the all-day Fenix restaurant, from pan Asian delicacies and Japanese sushi to modern Western cuisines, or indulge at restaurant Ziya for classic Indian dishes that have been deconstructed and reinvented by Michelin starred Chef, Vineet Bhatia. Find the finest Italian ingredients and attached wine library at restaurant Vetro or simply enjoy a glass of Champagne in the comfortable lounge just off the lobby. As it goes without noticing, the international design of the Oberoi is not immediately ‘Indian’ at first glance, especially once compared to adjacent sister hotel – Trident, Nariman Point which oozes Indian tradition. Both hotels are linked via a corridor allowing Oberoi guests to use Trident facilities and maximise their dining options, but this is not vice versa.
There’s no doubt that guests staying at The Oberoi Mumbai will leave having experienced the exceptional hospitality and outstanding service from Oberoi’s helpful and kind staff, whose round-the-clock world class service is offered with no hesitation.
