A Trip on the Arabian Sea

Breakfast at the Sea Palace Hotel is quite substantial, with juice, fresh fruit, Indian food and eggs of your choice. We had never seen more than 4 guests at breakfast at any one time, though in true Indian style there were several attendants.... Well attending!! We had booked our flights with Cathay Pacific Airlines and now the morning had arrived …

... we headed to the Dhobe Ghats, an outdoor laundry. All over Mumbai people take their clothes to local cleaners. The clothes are labelled and sent to one of these Ghats. After sorting for color, they are distributed among 250 - 300 men who rent one of the concrete wash tubs. The clothes are scrubbed, bleached, hung to dry, and then returned to the neighborhood cleaners. The men, who work very hard scrubbing ...

Traffic Terrors - Journey Into the Unknown

... the whole time we have been stood there, which must have been 20 mins, a guy has been crouched down in that kind of way Indians do which is with there knees right in front of them and their bums almost touching the floor. He has been polishing the already highly polish marble and every so often moving slightly to polish the next patch. I then realised we are the only ones stood on the marble. The taxi driver steps onto the ...

Kadama 50: Walking through Dharavi

... A small dough ball is rolled out with a metal pin and then placed on a straw basket for sun-drying. This area of town smelled so delicious! I also learned that the people of Dharavi do not just live and work there. A large number of men live in Dharavi but travel daily to the south of Mumbai where they are taxi and rickshaw drivers. The women are also maid and cleaning ladies for middle class households in Mumbai.

You may not believe it but the homes ...

... the women with the help of an interpreter and social worker. The youngest was 14; the other two were her mother and grandmother. They all had been doing this work since the age of seven.

I asked the girl, 'Are you happy? Do you have any plans for the future?’

The girl shrugged. ‘I hope to get married soon. I imagine my daughter will work here, too.’

She was resigned to the fact that this was it. She had no ...

    Some of the reviews on Trip Advisor really did not do this hotel justice. Indeed it probably needs a makeover (the hotel outside looks far worse than in) but our room delivered splendidly. We paid about $80 US for a room that overlooked the sea and the Gateway to India. We had free wifi (that worked well), television, A/C, fridge etc. The room was serviced everyday to a very good standard. I would certainly recommend it on position alone.

    A Delightfully Wise Choice of Hotel

    Selecting a hotel in Mumbai was a challenge in itself, because we had to readjust the mindset and prepare to spend about three times more than our usual expenditure, because Mumbai - like any other world class international city - is expensive. Accommodations could have been found for less, but we were not willing to sacrifice the comfort and security of a good budget hotel, and we wanted, above all, a hotel located in Calaba, walking distance to The Gates of India and all of the tourist attractions.

    The Sea Palace Hotel was the perfect choice, with rooms to accommodate a range of budgets, very friendly and accommodating management and staff, and an excellent location right on the waterfront, only metres away from the iconic Taj Mahal Hotel and The Gates of India. In addition to the prime location, the hotel's rooftop terrace restaurant was a huge bonus, with excellent food, great music, and a stellar view overlooking the bay.

    For all that it offers, this hotel has got to be the best deal in town. Think about it: a budget hotel with prime location waterfront in Mumbai. We would definitely stay at The Sea Palace in future. Highly recommended.
