TAJ MAHAL PALACE AND TOWERS
Built in 1903, The Taj Mahal Palace is an iconic landmark almost as famous as its namesake.
The great and the good – from royalty and presidents to authors and artists – have been entertained beneath these vaulted alabaster ceilings and graceful archways for more than a century. The establishment brings together Moorish, Oriental and Florentine architectural styles, combining European grace with Indian elegance. The décor is just as luxurious with sumptuous hand-woven silk carpets, crystal chandeliers, and a dramatic cantilever stairway. With panoramic views of the Arabian Sea and the Gateway of India, the award-winning hotel offers 46 generously appointed suites as well as the luxurious Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Rooms, each adorned with original paintings and period furniture to transport guests into a world of regal luxury and grandeur.
TOP SUITE TATA SUITE
Why we love it: Housed on the 6th floor of the Palace Wing, the Tata Suite is a gloriously adorned set of 15 rooms offering the ultimate in imperial opulence. The interior décor is spectacular, and specially commissioned from one of Malaysia’s leading designers. The dome of the grand living room is embellished with intricate gold stencil artwork while the room itself is replete with elegant inlaid tables, silver-framed mirrors, sparkling royal chandeliers and intricate marquetry. Each room is decorated with furniture, paintings and artifacts from the hotel’s own extensive collection, and a butler is on hand to ensure that every need is met. A truly unforgettable experience, the Tata Suite encapsulates a slice of history, legend and romance.
