Formally Bombay, Mumbai is India’s capital of commerce and home to the Bollywood film industry. Rise above the hustle and bustle of the city in your guestroom, perhaps overlooking the Arabian Sea with floor-to-ceiling windows. It has internet, hot drink maker and top quality bedding. The best suites have mahogany and maple wood furnishings lashed in silk to create that exotic feel. There are two restaurants, Café Prato where you will want to prattle away the day over lovely curries and San-Qi that specialises in Japanese delicacies – the open air pool also has a snack bar. The Aer bar and lounge is Mumbai’s special rooftop hangout with fine cocktails and delicious design. The spa combines ancient ayurvedic therapies with contemporary sensibilities (in other words, they keep the aromatic herbs and get rid of the leeches). The Four Seasons has partnered with the city’s dabbawalas – members of the lunchbox delivery trade, giving you the chance to experience this tradition and eat some delicious food from their tiffin tins. So stay here for the all-round experience.
