Mumbai Taj hotels

A Night in Taj Lands End, Mumbai

It is often said that it takes more than a few hours to actually know a place. However, when I arrived in Mumbai, it was only for half a day. Since, I was already booked at the Taj Lands End, it did not take long to understand why Taj actually went ahead and built a second hotel in the same city apart from the Taj Mahal Palace hotel. The only reason that made sense was the location.

The Location of Taj Lands End:

Standing tall, overlooking the sea in Bandra, Taj Lands End was built to awe guests with charming views of the city as well as the sea. Consisting of over 400 rooms with 40 suites, it is one of the biggest hotels in Mumbai. With a favourable location – accessible to the airports (international and domestic), adjacent to local business hubs such as BKC (Bandra-Kurla Complex), Rajiv Gandhi Sea-Link Bridge that connects the two sides of the city, etc. it is no wonder that Taj Lands End sits on some prime Mumbai real estate.

Bandra is known as the most vibrant place to explore in Mumbai due to its vast array of establishments set up by the sea. Just outside the hotel is the Bandstand promenade, a kilometre long walkway where you can get excellent photos of the old Fort, the SeaLink bridge, and a perfect place to people watch. Very popular with the locals, especially at sunset, take a walk along the promenaded to get a feel of what Mumbai offers visitors.

The Rooms at Taj Lands End:

There are a variety of rooms and suites available for guests at the Taj Lands End hotel. Guests can select to stay on a smoking or non smoking floor, in a suite that offers 24 hour butler service, or one of the rooms on the top floors of the hotel that provide exclusive access to the Taj Club Lounge. I was checked in to room #1234 on the 12th floor, but later changed to room #1834 (recently refurbished with a better view).

With around 600 square feet, my room comprised of a king sized bed and en-suite bathroom, complete with dressing area and a sitting area. The rooms are decorated in a modern design with bright coloured furnishings contrasting nicely with the light coloured carpet on the floors along with massive bay windows that adds to the feeling of spaciousness.

Large flat screen television is fitted on the wall across from the bed with high-definition channels available. Free WiFi, multiple gadget A/V system with surround sound, and dual line telephones with data capabilities are also provided.

Amenities in the room include: an electronic safe, mini-bar, amenities kit, lit up make up mirror, hair dryer, a weight scale and tea/coffee making facility. Additionally, there’s 24-hour in-room dining service that is just perfect for a late night snack or an early morning breakfast.

Dining Options in Taj Lands End

Being a luxury 5 star hotel, there are four specialty restaurants along with the Atrium lounge. Since I was there for only one night, all I could squeeze in was the special Oktobeerfest menu at the Atrium lounge in Taj Lands End. The menu consisted of some fabulous beer based cocktails along with an array of sausages on the side. The bar tender did a wonderful job of making a fresh cocktail with beer as the base and had a refreshing feel to it as well as taste. The locally sourced sausages were one of the finest I ever had in India. A couple of pints paired with the lovely sausages (pork, duck, lamb and chicken) made sure that I was stuffed for the night.

The other dining options at the Taj Lands End, Mumbai are:

Ming Yang (Chinese)

Masala Bay (Indian)

Maritime by San Lorenzo (Italian)

Vista (24 hour cafe)

Service at Taj Lands End:

Taj staff members really do try their best to ensure that your every need is not only met, but also exceeded, and they are probably one of the hotels greatest assets. If you are looking for things to do outside of the Taj Lands End hotel then the knowledgeable concierge staff, located at the first floor lobby counter, can give you plenty of local information including booking tickets for various tours with reputable guides. However, the hotel has many amenities that can keep you busy such as a dip in the outdoor pool, exercise at the fitness centre, relax at Jiva spa, indulge in the designer stores and attend to meetings at one of the many business centres.

    I haven’t yet been to India, but will keep this in mind fro when I eventually get there. Are there other nearby options for eating? Sometimes the more remote hotels hold their guests captions dining-wise.

    I have often thought about a quick stopover just to see the Taj Mahal. At the same time, I keep telling myself “No, wait until you have enough time to do India justice”. I will never see it at this rate so I now think this is a must do on my next trip between SE Asia and Europe so this hotel looks like the perfect place to stay – thanks for the heads up!

    I’ve been to India a few times and withb the exception of the Oberoi in Agra, always choose to stay at Taj properties. In fact, during our trip to Mumbai we were atthe Taj Palace. They tend to always be top notch and the service I have experienced there is like no other.
