The Taj Mahal Palace

Apollo Bunder
Mumbai India 400001

For a fantastic location overlooking the Gateway of India, you can't do better than the Taj Mahal Palace and Hotel. It's a sumptuous place, a blend of historic and contemporary, that's dripping with history -- and it's where royalty, heads of state and jet-setters stay. The hotel has a yacht for hire for trips to the Elephanta Caves or a harbor cruise. Safety precautions have been stepped up here since the terrorist attack in 2008; to ensure guests' safety, there's now an airport-like security process (complete with bomb-sniffing dogs) required to enter the hotel.
