The Taj Mahal Palace
Mumbai

Top 10s logo 

The Taj Mahal Palace is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Lux City Hotels.

This landmark hotel is situated on the waterfront in downtown Mumbai, facing the Gateway of India and the Arabian Sea. Built in 1903, it is a Victorian extravaganza which has been sensitively refurbished to maintain its character as Bombay's 'grand dame.' Excellent restaurants, a choice of lively bars, an array of designer shops and good service can be found throughout the hotel, which, despite its size, remains a distinct city institution. We recommend the Sea Lounge overlooking the harbour for people watching, afternoon coffees and delicious chaats (Bombay street food). The swimming pool, located at the back of the hotel, is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon as many of the shaded lounges offer views of the hotel's wonderful heritage facade. A new wing was added in the 1970s and has more functional, business type rooms. Complimentary Wi-fi is available.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
