Shiva's Trishul :-)
Quality, flagship chain. Loved the outfits of the staff who greet you.
Extremely efficient, courteous and elegant.
Great rooms, very well-equipped, flooding with light, offering great views over the ocean, bathrooms have see-through windows looking into the room and beyond (sea view!) - [which do have an electrically-operated screen to isolate the bathroom from being looked into from the room!!].
Brilliant security in the lifts, where you have to swipe your card to only then be able to select your floor. *** These measures came into force following the 2008 terrorist attacks, when gunmen went about the hotel, rounding up guests from their rooms and shooting them :-(
Some painting work was going on outside, at the rear.
The swimming pool is SIMPLY BRILLIANT. No two ways about it. Quirky shape, with the depth changing unpredictably (to the senses from a logic point of view), although you can read the depth markers if you cast your glance about ;-)
Interestingly, the pool is not really used during the early hours, as the guests (many being foreigners!) find the unheated pool too cold during the Mumbai winter!! But this does not apply to all guests. Who are the stand-out stars: unanimously... the Russians :-) The pool lifeguard explained that they are the coolest customers, slipping in and out as if it does not affect them at all - hardy lot, eh? Funny bit of side comment :-)
Unique Quality: Brilliant service, thoroughly efficient and courteous.
Superb, deep, outdoor swimming pool.
Fantastic gym, very well laid out, excellent design, handy, central placement of towels and water. Lots of machines around.
Great variety of restaurants, serving very decent and lip-smackingly tasty food.
Directions: Right on Marine Drive - can't miss the duo-combo Trident and Oberoi. They create quite a landmark.
Reasonable 5 star hotel
A reasonable 5 star hotel, which beloings to the chain Oberoi hotel group. Location in Nariman Point, a business district with perfect view of the sea view and night view of the Queen necklace.
Stayed for four nights in June. Large hotel at the end of the bay at Nariman Point. Well run hotel. Had a spotless and charming wood panneled room overlooking the bay - unfortunately I delayed and hit the Monsoon - so the outlook was hot and grey. Big bowl of perfectly ripe mangoes in my room...wonderful touch. Restaurant downstairs was mixed Asia cuisine and the only critisicm I have is that to dine Indian I had to go to the sister hotel next door - not a real problem.
Did manage an afternoon by the pool - nice.
Location meant that it was an easy stroll accross to the Gateway for a little sightseeing
Directions: Nariman Road
Landmark by the Arabian Sea
The Mumbay (Bombay)-Oberoi is a very modern , centrally in the heart of Mumbai`s commercial district located hotel. It overlooks the Arabian Sea and is near to Nariman-Popint and the Gate of India.
Nice and modern, partly in Indian style decorated rooms. Every room has a separate dressing area and bathroom with separate shower. Several indian, western and Chinese restaurants available.
Service as good as possible in such a rather big hotel (more than 330 rooms, plus the adjacent Oberoi-Towers ) Excellent food at the breakfast-buffets.
Unique Quality: Most sympathetic quality is the hotels good location, plus the in-hotel shopping arcade with dozens of tailor-,silk and souvenir-shops.
Directions: Nariman Point, Gate to India
Room with a view
Prestigious hotel located at the waterfront of Mumbai. When staying here, ask for a room with a view and enjoy the seaview in the daytime and the glittering lights of Mumbai at night.
Room is pretty ordinary for the price its charging. They don't even serve mineral water!
The only good thing about this hotel is that it provides access to airport lounge when you check out so that you don't have to worry about finding a place to sit or have something to eat.
Unique Quality: Great view
Airport lounge access
(Good) Old Oberoi
The Oberoi Mumbai is Oberoi's flagship hotel (adjacent is the Hilton Towers, which used to be the known as Oberoi Towers). Situated in Nariman Point, Mumbai's traditional business district (Bandra Kurla up north is posing a very serious challenge to Nariman's pre-eminent position as a business location), the hotel has a fantastic view of the Arabian Sea - where sea-facing rooms create an ocean-liner effect.
Plus there's much more to love in this hotel - the atrium lobby is amazing, the high-ceiling rooms are tastefully furnished, the separate tub and shower areas spell convenience (and less mess and chances of slipping while having a shower), the exotic toiletries (read: sandalwood soaps) are something you should ask for more (to take home) :-)
There is only one area I wish the hotel could improve on: the breakfast buffet spread, although you're free (that is of course if free breakfast comes as part of your package) to order al la carte.
Unique Quality: The hotel remains a top choice for business travelers (plus those with money to burn!) for it's strategic location (that is of course if most of your meetings are within and/or around Nariman Point), superior service (read: 24-hr butler service), and great rooms.
Plus their 24-hour business center has a shredder :-)
Directions: It's in Nariman Point, at the tip of the Queen's Necklace (Bombay's more exotic, well, less grand) version of Shanghai's The Bund.
The Oberoi is equally...
The Oberoi is equally reputable and expensive. This is located in Nariman Point which is Bombay's most expensive real estate.
