England in India
4th Test, Mumbai
06 December – 14 December 2016
Bombay, as most of the locals still call it, is one of the great cities of the world. With endless activity and things to see and do, Samuel Johnson might have even be persuaded to have a few days away from London! The airport is to the North of the city but most of the action, including the Test match at the Wankhede Stadium, is in South Mumbai. The Test match in Mumbai is an event in itself regardless of the position of the series.

The Taj Mahal Palace – 5 star deluxeBy far the most iconic hotel in India is the colonial gem – the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai. Built in 1903, this luxury hotel has been the residence of choice for maharajas, dignitaries and other famous personalities for more than a century. Facilities include a large swimming pool in a wonderful garden setting, Taj Salon and Jiva Grande Spa. Fine dining options include Wasabi by Morimoto (Japanese), Golden Dragon (Chinese), Masala Kraft (Contemporary Indian) and Souk (Eastern Mediterranean). The Harbour Bar is Mumbai’s first licensed lounge bar and the Sea Lounge – famous for its afternoon tea – exudes old colonial charm accompanied by enchanting live piano music and spectacular sea views. The hotel has two wings – the far from impressive Tower Wing which we do not recommend. The Tower rooms are smaller, in need of refurbishment and are not of 5-star standard in my view. The other choice, which we have taken, is the original heritage side of the hotel – the stunning Palace Wing. Our Palace Luxury Grande rooms offer a city view, are gloriously beautiful and comfortable and come with a welcome drink, 24-hour personalised butler service, complimentary 24-hour tea-coffee at the Palace Lounge and breakfast in the gorgeous Sea Lounge – exclusive to Palace Wing residents. Absolutely wonderful! Trip Advisor Reviews
