The Taj Mahal Palace


The history of Mumbai and The Taj Mahal Palace are dramatically intertwined. The hotel is Mumbai’s first harbor landmark (built 21 years before the Gateway of India) and the site of the first licensed bar in the city. For more than a century, the Taj has played an intrinsic part in the life of the city, hosting Maharajas, dignitaries and eminent personalities from across the globe. Today it is a Leading Hotel of the World and favorite destination for discerning business travelers. 

A treasure-trove of invaluable memorabilia, there is a story to tell behind every pillar, a landmark deal in every boardroom, and a storied celebration under every awning. Come be a part of the legend.

Tower Rooms
In the 1970s, the beloved icon, The Taj expanded to open the doors of the adjacent Tower wing. In contrast to the Palace wing, the Tower wing is newer and orderly, with a combination of European and Indian architecture. With the opening of the Tower, the entrance of The Taj was repositioned to face Mumbai harbor. The 275 rooms (superior and deluxe) in the Tower wing have spectacular views of the Gateway of India and Arabian Sea or of Mumbai city or the pool.
