Amazing Luxury Hotels in the World
The word ‘luxury’ itself is something special and great. When it is prefixed with an ‘amazing’ tag, there adds some extra specialty and royal status to this expression. Each country has its own super luxurious hotels waiting for the richest travelers. The culture, heritage, art and every fabulous feature of these countries may reflect in these hotels.
The hotels reminding the symbols of a rich custom and culture of a country are a delight to our eyes and a temptation to our mind. We feel to spend at least one night there. The properties stand there displays the tradition and charm of the land. For example, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai (often called Taj Hotel) displays the fine aspects of the Indian culture and her kind hospitality. It is often described as ‘what Shah Jahan’s Taj Mahal is to monuments, the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai is to hospitality in India’. Though the hotel came under terrorists’ attack on 26/11 (26th November 2008) and heavily damaged, it was renovated and retained its charm and still attracts many visitors and guests.
The Taj Hotel is situated on the opposite side of “The Gateway of India” building, a national monument, and a masterpiece of the architectural brilliance of the old generation. It is one of Mumbai’s hot tourist attractions. I had the luck to visit the hotel during my Mumbai tour in 2012 and 2014 with my cousin, who stays in Mumbai with his family. During this trip, I took a few snaps of this engineering marvel impressing travel folks across the world for the last one century. You can watch it here. (Please click on the thumbnail photos given below, you can see its full-size view).
