Concierge.com's insider take:
Reopened in spring 2010 after a multimillion-dollar makeover helped erase the damage caused by the 2008 terrorist attack, the Oberoi, a Mumbai landmark, has been reinvented as the city's most tranquil hotel. The reception area—a light-filled atrium of white Thassos marble punctuated only by a red lacquer grand piano, sets a serene tone that's continued in the well-appointed spa, 24-hour fitness center, and three restaurants. (At Ziya, Michelin-starred chef Vineet Bhatia blends northern and southern flavors into a contemporary take on Indian cuisine.) All 287 of the renovated guest rooms seamlessly pair soothing, contemporary decor (teak floors, an ivory and moss palette, white leather headboards) with elegant Indian accents (cabinets and mirrors inlaid with mother of pearl, Agra marble tables, lithographs of local landscapes). The glass-enclosed marble bathrooms star freestanding ceramic tubs, and in the rooms, tech updates pop up everywhere, from Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations to flat-screen TVs. There's butler service, too, but the best accessories, if you book one of the front rooms, are the expansive picture windows, which make you feel like you're in a ship floating on the Arabian Sea.—Raphael Kadushin
