Graced with views over the Arabian Sea, the Intercontinental Hotel in Bombay has an enviable location on Marine Drive. The hotel was recently renovated to give it a sleek modern design. I did not stay at the Intercontinental, but visited the hotel for a lunch at its very famous restaurant, Kebab Korner. The hotel is also known for its rooftop bar/lounge, Dome, one of the city's trendiest bars where the well-to-do meet for cocktails while the sun sets over the Arabian Sea. The Intercontinental is an excellent alternative to the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel when visiting Bombay.
Update: In a city full of very expensive and sometimes overpriced hotels, I got a great pre-paid deal on a room overlooking Arabian Sea and Marine Drive for $200 through Travelocity. Room was fantastic. Comfortable king size bed, plasma TV/DVD player, sound system, minibar, coffeemaker, work desk, wireless connection (extra charge), large bathroom with separate shower, bathtub, toilet, bathrobes, toiletries. Welcome juice, chocolates, and fruits brought to our room. In-room twenty minute neck/head massage included. Even at the regular price, I love this fantastic hotel, but this was a steal!
The InterContinental Marine Drive is a beautiful hotel worthy of its 5 stars. Nice size rooms with great comfortable beds and view of the Arabian Sea and Marine Drive. Full amenities (check website) and delicious buffet breakfast. Staff is first class. Convenient location to Nariman Point, Colaba, etc. Several restaurants and Not Just Jazz by the Bay (club) within walking distance (2 minutes).
Highly recommend this gem in Mumbai!
Like all the Oberoi Hotels, simply top-notch.
Unique Quality: Great location, pool on the third or fifth floor, Indian and International restaurants. A magnet for starwatching in 'Bollywood.'
Directions: At Nariman Point, close to Colaba. the heart of downtown Bombay.
