Standard

Hey readers, Savar Pandey is here again to share with you one of my electrifying experience in the city of dreams, Mumbai! I finally got a weekend off from my boss, and I didn’t want myself to get shut in my room in front of the boring television screen. I decided for a luxurious trip, and why not the city that doesn’t sleep- Mumbai. There are many exciting places to check out in the city like Gateway of India, Chowpatty, Kanheri Caves, Siddhivinayak Temple, Haji Ali Dargah and many more.

We have always heard about the Taj Hotel Mumbai, but neither our pockets nor the circumstances allowed me to spend a night there. But this time, my heart said no for compromising and I decided to book two days stay at the grand and most luxurious hotel of the country. The Taj group of hotels have many hotels in India and abroad. Taj Lands End and Vivanta by Taj were the two options in front of me.

My heart started drumming and there was a luminous sparkle in my eyes, and I finally chose Vivanta by Taj for the Taj experience in my life! As I landed in Mumbai, I received a call from the driver who was waiting for me at the arrivals. After a smooth drive in a luxurious car, I reached the hotel and was welcomed with pomp. The hotel is colossal, and my eyes were wide open and I was literally awestruck!

The check- in procedure winded up quickly and in the next 5 minutes I was in my room. “Gosh!” was what I exclaimed.  Actually I was dumbstruck and no words were enough to even partially describe the luxury or the palatial ambience. It was lavishness beyond what I ever dreamt of, and I realized no matter what I spend, it was worth every penny and I will cherish this memory for my lifetime. I was given a complimentary breakfast, beautifully presented and in style. It showed the experience and passion of the master chef.

After some deep sleep, I strolled in the entire hotel. “Oh my my!” was my heart saying every time I came across something lavish and stunning. As I am a hard core foodie, I sneaked into Trattoria as soon as the lunch time started. The menu offered to me stunned as the catalogue had hi fi names of food from various countries of the world. I tried international cuisine and my heart as well as tummy was fully satiated and satisfied to say the least!

I thoroughly enjoyed my two day stay at Taj Hotel Mumbai and was treated as a prince in a palace. Unforgettable indeed! While I was leaving the hotel, I made a promise to that I was surely going to give myself this treat whenever my purse strings allowed me to!
