The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
One of Mumbai’s richest merchants, Jamshetji Tata, commissioned the hotel, and rumors say that he did so after he was refused entry into the prestigious Watson’s Hotel at the time. The Taj Mahal Palace hotel is not just a great place to stay but also one of Mumbai’s architectural landmarks. The Ravi Shankar suite is named so because The Beatles’ George Harrison stayed in this room with Pandit Ravi Shankar to learn the Sitar. Their spas and pools spell luxury.
