Hyatt Regency Mumbai
Travel Blogs from Mumbai (Bombay)
We left Washington DC on the 3rd of July, making a stopover at Paris for our stopover via Air France.
We arrived in Mumbai on the 4th after a long flight via Air France and stayed at the beautiful Hyatt Hotel, amazing room and amenities, we went and visited my parents, sister and niece and nephew and went around town next day!
I didn't take many pictures in Mumbai. And the ones I did take are lacking in dimension, as you can't feel the heat, nor hear the noise, nor smell the garbage. You see a lot of people, some in very bad states, and you think their condition is far more serious than my business here. I thought I'd find nothing I wanted to share and I really just …
... t arrive in Goa until 3pm but the journey was quite enjoyable watching out the window people working in rice fields, shanty towns, waterfalls, we even saw a dog munching away at a caucus of a dead cow! We got a taxi to a place called Panaji (aka Panjim), we checked into a fairly nice hotel and explored a little getting a curry in a delicious restaurant called Chili and Spice. Thursday 11th July We hired a driver for the day. The weather was a complete let down though ...
... they would have some cheaper, ready made ones there, but they didn't. They did have a vast selection of hideous, old fashioned "western" skirts. Within that section they also sold denim mini skirts, I was actually after a cotton maxi skirt that I could wear with a simple white top, but they didn't have that either. It did leave me wondering why they sold no long skirts but dozens of short skirts when they massively frown upon women that wear short skirts. My ...
... alike. I got stung for a few rupees from a holy man and a woman who wanted milk for her kid so I hardened up a bit after that as it was most likely a scam. We did some shopping after and headed to Leopolds cafe for lunch. Leopolds is a famous cafe in Mumbai used by tourists and locals and was attacked during the terrorist attacks in 2008. You can still see the bullet holes in the walls and the window. It is also heavily mentioned in the book ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Mumbai Mumbai (Bombay)
When I was approaching the hotel from a distance, the glimpse of the hotel doesn't gives me the Wow feeling as the exterior was rather plain and simple. I started to feel a little disappointed...
The Hyatt Regency in Mumbai is a fantastic place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbais busy streets. The service here is top class, and the food is awesome. The atmosphere is peaceful, the staff are first class, there is an outdoor pool, health club and gym, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to be away from it all - not so sure if it is suited to families, more for couples and business I think. The hotel is a mere 5 mins drive from Mumbai airport. The only downside is that you are 1 hours drive away from Colado where the main tourist attractions are, but you can always hire a car and a very knowledgeable helpful driver for the day who will happily take you everywhere you want to go. You can then return to the tranquil calm of the hotel and enjoy a wonderful evening meal and excellent facilities. Its not cheap, but I will definitely stay here again.
I stayed here on the executive floor for 5 days and found it to be a great hotel. For only a small amount more, the upgrade to exec level is well worth it. The seperate reception, the free drinks, the helpful staff made it all worth it.
Great place to stay in Mumbai
We stayed here 2 nights after three grueling weeks traveling India. After coming from Varanasi, the Hyatt was seventh heaven. We were upgraded to the Concierge Level. My wife and I quickly sign up for a 1 hr massage (about $30/ea) while the kids swam in the pool. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and accomodating. The hotel is VERY close to the international airport. Nice for early morning departures.
The lap of luxury
I stayed at the Mumbai Hyatt in October 2005. I have to say, it was one of the nicest places I've stayed in. The bed was to die for comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. There is a lack of hot water if you like really hot showers (but I didn't find anywhere in India with hot water) The service is attentive and the breakfast was decent.
New hotel, great lobby. Rooms are very comfortable and well layed out. All in all an outstanding place to stay.
Great hotel, super location, helpful staff
Very nice hotel. Room was comtemporary, clean and comfortable. Great lounge area. Close to airport. Friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again for travel to/from Mumbai, especially with time constrained travel that did not permit me to stay in downtown.
One of the nicest hotels ever
We stayed in the Mumbai Hyatt on the last night of a 3 week trip to India. We got a good deal on a club room which included airport transfers. We were picked up at the airport bang on time in a large new air conditioned car which was very welcome when the teperature was 35 degrees. The hotel is beautiful, the service exemplary and the club lounge has great complimentary food and drink. My only regret is that we could only stay one night and had to leave the next day at 4am.
Truly an experience to remember
Stay here, this hotel has everything to ask for and more. Of course you are in Mumbai where there's not much to do. But the hotel makes up for it. From the rooms to the facilities. The staff are truly world class. Jamie Footner is the Director of rooms and she has trained her staff to a point where is like a well olied machine. The Restaurants are headed by Mr Deepak & Mr Hermatt, the food is unbelieveable.
My review is 5star
