From spacious, comfortable rooms to food that can touch your soul, exemplary service to excellent amenities, The Westin Mumbai Garden City had me falling head over heels in love with it. My experience here will always be unforgettable.
Whether you’re a local or a traveler, a businessman on work or a couple on honeymoon, this beautiful property has something in it for everyone.
The Stay –
We stayed at one of Westin’s Executive Suites that is truly the definition of luxurious living. As you enter you’re taken aback by the sheer size of this outstanding room. With facilities like a fully stocked mini bar, two large LCD TV’s, a huge bathroom with a tub, the Westin heavenly bed, a work station, a living area and more, this suite is the complete package with everything one can need. You really won’t feel like getting out of your room itself once you’re in it.
I’d heard a lot about Westin’s heavenly bed but was thrown away when I actually experienced it. Soft, cozy and ultra comfortable.
The work station with a view of the Mumbai skyline will make you never want to go back to your office. Sip a cup of coffee or enjoy a meal with their impressive room service as you work away in the comfort of your suite.
Take a dip in their heavenly bathtub or push your feet up on the couch and watch a movie in the separate living area.
After a good night’s sleep head down to Seasonal tastes for a breakfast fit for kings or just enjoy a massage at the Heavenly Spa.
The Spa –
Rejuvenate your senses and escape from the usual at the Heavenly Spa by Westin that can make you feel truly relaxed. With expertly guided massages, outstanding beauty treatments and a healthy SuperfoodsRX menu, discover the new you with their brilliant spa treatments.
With light, soft music playing in the background, the smell of scented candles engulfing you and the light hands of an expert masseuse gliding over your body on a heated bed, awaken your senses with one of their signature massages.
I tried their “Revitalizer” massage that made me feel like I’m in absolute heaven. Using the top quality products, your body is treated like a temple, making your muscles feel relaxed and alive.
I also tried their “Balance Facial” that made my skin feel as soft as butter. So close your eyes, let go of the stress and enjoy the moment.
The Food –
The Westin Mumbai Garden City serves food that will touch your soul and make you keep coming back just to experience it all over again.
Brunch at Seasonal Tastes –
With a multi-cuisine buffet spread that will enchant your taste buds, Seasonal Tastes serves one of the best brunches in the city. From gourmet Italian to rich Indian, well spiced Oriental to tangy Mexican, get your fix of every major cuisine with their mighty spread.
Westin doesn’t let you compromise on your health as it offers you a large “SuperfoodsRx” menu comprising of juices, salads and more for those who are conscious of their diet.
What we loved about the brunch: Stir fried noodles in a hot garlic sauce, watermelon and feta salad, mini kimchi burgers, kaali daal, the live chaat counter, gruyere cheese straws with green peas and avocado hummus, tiramisu, berry vanilla cake.
Dinner at Kangan –
There are some places which are always special for you and Kangan is one of them for us. With a view that will please your eyes, a pleasing ambience, impeccable service and of course outstanding Indian food, Kangan is undoubtedly one of the best fine dining restaurants for Indian food in Mumbai.
Chef Shamsher Ahmed weaves his magic onto the food served here and into your soul.
For starters you must, without fail try the Rajma ki Galawati kebab that’s served on a mini naan. The smoked rajma melts into your mouth. The Dahi ke kebabs too are a perfect blend of sweet and savory and each bite transports you to food heaven.
Get ready to experience a culinary journey through Northern India with the innovative yet delicious dishes offered at Kangan.
Have you ever thought of a Kashmiri Seb ki Sabzi? We’re sure you haven’t. This sweet, spicy and rich delicacy when had with their Zaffrani Taftan parathas enriched with saffron and milk will make you feel like a royal.
The Daal Kangan is truly one of the best black lentils we’ve ever had. Buttery, rich and full of flavor, have this with their fragrant Gucchi ki Dum Biryani and feel a sense of utter satisfaction.

Prego, The Italian Heaven –
Handmade Pizzas, Gourmet Pastas and delicious desserts are your favorites? Prego at the Westin Mumbai Garden City serves some of the most authentic and delightful Italian food around.
We loved the meter long Quattro Formaggi pizza that was made right in front of our eyes in a wood fired oven. The Spaghetti Contadina tossed with san marzano tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, and aged grana padano cheese in a creamy sauce will make you want to come back for it again and again.
Prego’s tiramisu with its melt in your mouth texture and perfect balance of flavors is something you must try when at the Westin.
