Swipe It, Spend It: The Taj Shopping Arcade Has Everything Dreams Are Made Of


The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai is possibly one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. Its shopping arcade welcomes hoards of avid shoppers- especially those who love their collection of branded wear and accessories- every day. We decided to check out the arcade and decode the hype for the shopper in you.

What Makes It Awesome

With its grand, magnificent and towering architecture and list of notable guests and history, Taj is possibly the most luxurious hotel in the city. And if you wondered whether shopping inside the arcade was restricted to the guests, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that it’s open to all.

The high street, or the arcade in Taj is full of high-end brands, and brands that are home to the Taj hospitality specifically. We found some international brands such as Mont Blanc, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Zodiac strutting their stuff here. Indian brands such as Ravissant, Dia {jewellery brand}, Joy Shoes, and Forest Essentials have marked their territory too. If you’re Rebecca from Confessions Of A Shopaholic, then we suggest you check your credit card limit before stepping in here. 

The arcade is definitely made for the international guests that stay at the Taj, however, if you’d like a quick spin by the arcade for when you’re looking to splurge, do so.


The Taj Arcade is keeping up with its five-star roots. All you need is a loaded bank account and a lazy afternoon to spend your time {and money. of course}  shopping {or window shopping, whatever floats your boat}. If you want to take a sweet little break while you're at it, head straight to La Pattisserie and get a box full of delicious cupcakes, macrons and more.
