City: Shangri-La, Mumbai

5 of 63

Mumbai’s newest kid on the block is adding even more glamour to the city’s commercial center. The lobby’s Botticino-marble staircase is flanked by ornate gilded mirrors and wall sconces bejeweled with crystal. Upstairs, the 390 well-appointed guest rooms have sweeping views of the city and Arabian Sea beyond and incorporate classic Indian flourishes such as tikri artwork sourced from Rajasthan. There are plenty of diversions here: hot-stone massages at the Chi spa, designer shopping at the ground-floor Palladium Mall, or lounging by the breezy outdoor pool. shangri-la.com. $
