Trident Nariman Point, Mumbai

Towering above the skyline and overlooking the Arabian Sea, the Trident Nariman Point is located in the heart of Mumbai’s central business district with the city’s main shopping area only a short distance away. It offers 575 well appointed guest rooms, many offering ocean views and broadband and internet access.

The Claridges, New Delhi

The Claridges Hotel is centrally located in New Delhi, close to historical landmarks, shopping centres and the business centre of the city. The property dates from the 1950s and offers guests an old-world ambience that has been sensitively redefined with new age grandeur and hospitality.

Taj Usha Kiran Palace

The Usha Kiran Palace was originally built as a palace for the royal visit of the King and Queen of England, and the building is still resplendent with stone carvings, filigree work and mosaic floors. The hotel has 30 air-conditioned rooms and suites, and the restaurant has a selection of Indian, Chinese and Continental dishes.

Amar Mahal

The Amar Mahal is a simply converted palace property, which retains much of its original charm and character. With only 24 rooms, the hotel provides plenty of space for relaxation in its public areas and the restaurant offers a choice of cuisines.

Ahilya Fort

Ahilya Fort is an 18th century fortress converted into an award-winning hotel which has what is possibly the most dramatic setting of any Indian hotel. Perched on the edge of a cliff, enclosed within the massive walls of the fort, there are staggering views over the sacred Narmada River and the ghats immediately below. Built in 1766 AD, the fort is a charming property that has retained its regal elegance. It has 8 double bedrooms, 1 suite and 2 tents, each with their own private bathroom. Within the fort there are pretty courtyards and verandahs on different levels, linked by stone walkways.
