This may be the MOSt exquisite hotel I've ever seen! I don't know what to say other than, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai is extraordinarily beautiful. Every detail has been carefully and copiously attended to. The hallways leading to the rooms feel like you're in the most exquisite art gallery as the halls are lined with paintings and sculptures and beautiful green plants. The lobby is simply breathtaking. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you've made the smartest choice of hotel you've ever made. The flower arrangements alone would be worth staying here for--they're so sumptuous and beautiful. The pool are is breathtakingly beautiful. The breakfast room (The Sea Lounge) looks like a set from the series, The Crown. The staff could NOT be lovelier and/or more helpful if it tried. But you can sense the exceeding care taken to make sure you'll never forget this destination. Although parts of Mumbai are also poverty-ridden, and that's tough to absorb on the car ride in, I've never stayed in a more beautiful hotel in my life. It's so rare that a hotel actually takes my breath away when I enter it, but this one does absolutely. The hotel has some of the highest end shops I've ever seen in a hotel--like Louis Vuitton. But trust me--this is a vacation that takes you back in time to the British tradition of India. You will feel that you're in one of the most romantic hotels you've ever been in
