Why We Love It
This famous hotel, combining Moorish, Oriental and Florentine styles, was built in 1903, and no efforts have been spared in refitting the hotel since the horrific terrorist attacks in 2008.
Renowned as one of the most spectacular hotels in Mumbai, The Oberoi's unrivalled view over both the ocean and the Queen's Necklace of lights from the shoreline is testament to this.
Located in the fashionable area of Southern Mumbai and standing tall over Marine Drive, The Oberoi offers a variety of rooms ranging from Deluxe Rooms to a Presidential Suite. All rooms enjoy ensuite bathrooms, mother of pearl dressers, multiple phones and bespoke modern art. A pillow menu, blackout curtains and a 24-hour butler service means that no guests' wishes will be ignored.
Cuisine at The Oberoi caters to every taste, from Asian to traditional Indian and Western style menus. The multitude of restaurants means that you'll be hard pressed not to find something that takes your fancy. To add to the atmosphere, a central atrium with a red grand piano fills the hotel with live classical music six nights a week. If, however, you were after something more private, the option to dine al fresco by the pool with a personalised menu is also possible.
The Oberoi, Mumbai boasts a spa that offers international and holistic therapies, an outdoor pool and fitness centre. However, many other activities are available, with a spice trail, chor bazaar tour, art kaleidoscope and heritage walk all a possibility.
