Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai

One of the most iconic buildings in Mumbai, if not the whole of India this historic hotel could not be in a better location. Set in the heart of South Mumbai, just minutes away from prime cultural and shopping centres it overlooks that other famous landmark, The Gateway of India and the Arabian Sea. Built in 1903 it was the first hotel in India to have electricity and probably the only place where a British Viceroy could rub shoulders with a Maharajah. Since then it has become the world-renowned hotel that it is today, welcoming Heads of State, Maharajahs, Hollywood celebrities and rock stars alike
