My first ever blogpost had authentic travel moods straight from Mumbai, India. It took, however, more than ten years before I was able to experience a five star hotel in Mumbai. And after experiencing it, one can not dream of much else.
I chose such a hotel from Mumbai from where one can see the Marine Drive, and from this hotel in Nariman Point I was able to watch the sceneries where I had walked one decade earlier. And from where I also got to see movies and read some terrible news later as well.
That hotel was a 5 star hotel Oberoi Trident Mumbai and my room there was a suite with a living room, a bedroom and a bathroom. And because the short video I made of this Oberoi hotel happens to be my most popular video in my YouTube channel, the hotel really deserves to be blogged and mentioned in my free travel guide in web, the INDIVUE – Trip to India.
The living room of the suite had two windows overlooking the Arabian Sea as well as the skyscrapers of the opposite headland. The furniture included a sofa, sofa chairs and a living room table, as well as a dining table with chairs and a chest of drawers, a TV and oriental rugs. The bedroom in turn had a comfortable double bed, closets, desk, TV, desk chair and other seating. The bathroom was elegantly clean and had a nice bathtub.
The walls of the suite room were painted with the usual light yellow color common in Indian households and the floor of the living room was made of some dark green marble tile or similar cool coating that feels nicely cool on bare toes if air conditioning was not being used. The curtains were light beige and the furniture was darker in color. The suite had roses and other fresh flowers in a vase as decorative elements and couple of valuable-looking works of art delighted the guest on the suite walls.
One was able to order the breakfast in the room and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty with the room service being played tip top. I wrote a post in Finnish, couple of years ago, about the hotel kitchen and the hotel food, and the post was with a heading “Best Indian Food and Restaurant in Mumbai“. I think that tells about it all.
Video of the 5 star hotel Oberoi Trident in Mumbai
Couple of years ago I made a music video for YouTube about this five-star hotel in Mumbai and by now the video has received the most likes of all my YouTube videos so far. I want to thank you for all the likes, because it is very rare that a blogging artist gets any feedback. And since the video has reached over 11000 views by now, it is time to celebrate it and show you the video here as well –
In this video you will get to see e.g. the hotel’s pink corridors as well as them fine oriental rugs and the gilded trash can of the suite room. You will also get to see better the actual distance to the opposite beach, as well as the people around the hotel, doing for example their morning jog or just otherwise admiring the sea and the sceneries.
From the hotel’s observation deck one was able to see the entire Marine Drive and also Chowpatty Beach.
