Ten-Second Takeaway

Colaba – the land of the Gateway of India, sea views and Causeway. We always find something to explore here. Here are five unique things that you will only find here, and nowhere else in the city.

A Secret Garden

We stumbled upon the most gorgeous botanical garden in Colaba, and it’s absolutely hidden away in one of the many bylanes of the area. Officially called Sagar Upvan or Botanical Port Trust, this secret garden has a 650-metre-long running track, huge banyan trees, a cactus garden and a view of the Arabian sea. It’s also a perfect picnic spot.

    A Room Fit For Proposals

    Planning to pop the question? Casablanca in Taj’s Souk is a private cordoned off room for two where you can have a special seven-course meal served by the chef, champagne, candles and flowers, lots of flowers.

    It doesn’t hurt that in Colaba, you can always bank on a sea view too. Get more details here.

    The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Apollo Bunder, Colaba, Mumbai

    Mumbai's No. 1 Shawarma {And Other Gems}

    Coined ‘Arab Street‘ by well, us, this is a lane where you will find wonders unexplored, at least in South Mumbai. From imported chocolates, to beautiful sheeshas, kaftans to delicate fragrances of ittar, and of course, shawarmas. You’ll find something interesting to explore on this street just off Colaba Causeway, which brings us to…

    Junk Jewellery Haven

    Colaba Causeway has drawn tourists and locals from near and far with one glimmering promise: of the best street shopping. It has got the best clothes, kohlapuris, antiques and even junk jewellery, which we have mapped out for you here.

    Just remember to carry your bargaining shrewd observation skills with you, and you’re sorted.

    A Boutique Room With A Bath Tub

    One after the other, Colaba has got two adorable boutique hotels. Abode was someone’s residence that was converted into an adorable boutique hotel right above Le15 Cafe.

    The Gordon House too is a lovely hotel which explores different countries of the world through its decor on different floors. It’s also popular for its bar and restaurant, Havana.
