The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel’s history begins in the 1890s, when Jamsetji Tata decided to revive Mumbai’s former decadence and glamour with a world-class hotel. It soon become a second home for several maharajas, and has since been a temporary palatial home for the likes of Sir Richard Attenborough and Mick Jagger.
Despite retaining traditional colonial architecture, the hotel prides itself on its international artefacts which include Bastar tribal art and majestic Belgian chandeliers. Since celebrating its centenary, renovations have allowed the venue to modernise and open ten different dining experiences for visitors.

Luxury continues in the hotel’s eateries, including Wasabi by Morimoto, considered by San Pelligrino as one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2013.
