The 107-year-old Florentine-influenced palace fronted by the Gateway of India—"the best location in Mumbai"— fully reopened in August 2010 after suffering damage in the November 2008 terrorist attack. Interiors still display alabaster ceilings, silk carpets, and onyx columns. Rooms offer either colonial or contemporary decor and, in some, "amazing views over the water." Wasabi by Morimoto serves Japanese. "Staff are so good, you can't imagine staying anywhere else."
