Great ambience. Very opulent. Was a guest of a European organization so had the pleasure of staying in one of their best view rooms. Very good service. Very well appointed rooms and a really good bathroom. Breakfast parlour staff were as a rule, short on smiles and genuine caring. Poker faced, hurried, not making eye contact. Couldn't care less. Almost all of them. Similar experience on the previous night in a small dinner hosted by this organisation. Only 1/3rd of the guests turned up so no question of the young boys being over worked.they were serving the starters without any involvement, no smiles.They were all raw, as if they had been picked up from near by restaurants a month ago. A girl (and I don't want her to be punished at all because she told the truth), had no idea what the two different kulfis were. She had no idea what the flavour of the ice cream meant. She said so clearly. But I smiled because she was really young and fortunately truthful. Never seen such young, poorly trained F&B staff in any Taj hotel. Went for dinner to Masala Bay. The ambience was negatively minimalistic. I would call it next to ugly. It was full being a Sunday night. The food was good but atrociously expensive. When I wrote a minimum tip the waiter actually came and asked me if I had written only Rs. 300 and out of embarrassment I had to make it Rs. 500.
Kartik is the best. He is proactive and offered great advise on transport services
Hotel is majestic and room has amazing views
What I find disappointing is the cafe called Vista. I was grated at the door and once shown inside, I was left to explore the buffet spread. I can't read Indian and don't know what the food is but no one seemed to care. The captains were seen happily chatting, waiters and chef seemed busy but everyone except one waiter bothered to approach when I waved
Breakfast wasn't too busy but waiters seemed to be avoiding eye contact and I have to try quite hard to get my coffee
Room service attendant however gave me her full attention, gave good advice on selection of the menu.
Overall very pricy
