Travel to Mumbai (Bombay)


The Oberoi, Mumbai

24 January 2016

Words: Kaye Martindale / Images: Oberoi

Located on Marine Drive, India’s most expensive strip of real estate, The Oberoi honours the Indian notion that ‘guest is king’. Always willing to go that extra step, the obliging yet easygoing staff give red carpet treatment to every patron. The Oberoi team are encouraged to express their creativity, so don’t be surprised to come back to your room and discover a rose petal bath or a personalised set of towels to take home with you.

The spacious rooms are tastefully decorated with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer spectacular views of the Arabian Sea, while each has been thoughtfully furnished and every detail of your stay is carefully tended to by the appointed butler. The interior of The Oberoi quietly hums opulence with a simple and elegant finish of black granite, white marble and gold fabric. With its vast and tranquil lobby, along with a variety of drinking and dining options, 24-hour spa and two pool options, The Oberoi offers a welcome respite from the commotion of Mumbai’s streets.
