I stayed in the Grand Hyatt for 12 wks. I must admit when I landed in Mumbai I was surprised of how close this hotel is to the airport...15mins. There is 2 Hyatts in Mumbai, one is called the Grand Hyatt, the other just the Hyatt. Ok first of all when I seen the outside of this Hotel I was well impressed, although I was a little worried about the security..first of all when we drove in the underneath of the car was checked...then as we drove to the front I seen 2 dog handlers and a metal detector that you have to walk through after you get all your bags checked... I suppose this is a good thing these days, so I wont complain about that!!!Reception was very nice, huge lobby- with very helpful staff and a very good looking assistant manager called Marie (Shes Portugeese) I couldnt get over the size of this joint. I stood in awe in the lobby as she checked me in and organised the Broadband to be turned on in my room. I got escorted to my room by 2 very nice chaps - when the door opened it looked like I was in Heaven, the room was huge, with a super king sized bed, a bathroom with a great shower, loads of towels, dressing gown, slippers, huge desk with leather chair, 2 phones, note pads and pens...and then the fridge...oh the fridge...I opened this beauty to be met with an arrange of seriously good Beer...oh and there was some soft drinks and water too...I dont really know waht happened after that..but I woke up in the early hours lying on the floor with the alcohol contents of the fridge gone and the TV blaring MTVmusic of some sort....
Ok facilities are immense, 3 pools..lovely, 4 restaurants, 2 Bars, Beauty room for the ladies, Massage room, great gym which is free to use if your a guest.... oh and the night club called China House were only the elite go...This place Rocks everynight..and your not a resident in the hotel you have to go on a Guest list to get in...mainly becasue its only for Mumbai's elite...Bollywood actors etc...NOTE THIS: When I went shopping the next day in a place called Callaba (Fantastic) I noticed the price of everything was extremeyl cheap..clothes, I ate out at a restaurant and aid buttons for 4 beers and a 3 course meal.....this told me that the Hyatts Prices for food and drink is way over the top....e.g a beer in collaba was 65 R's - in the Hyatt a bottle of Fosters was 450R's...!!!! Massive price to pay in India..also I had a chat with one of the guys there who told me he gets 8000R's a month for his wages....60hrs a week..when my company was paying 25,000R's per night to stay there....(Around £250.00 per night)
Typical Prices in the Hyatt for eating dinner, drinks etc..
A 3 course meal would cost around £45.00 not including drinks....1 Beer (Bottle, cuz they dont do Pints) costs between £3.50-£5.00.
These prices are seriously high, considering if you went outside the hotel to a nice restaurant £15 would feed and drink 2 people. The restaurant Popdates does a goos steak with all the trimmings for £3.00, Bottle of beer there is 0.
