JW Marriott Juhu Hotel Review: Perfection in Mumbai

25 Jun 2018

My last stop on my recent trip to India was the famous city of Mumbai. This was actually my first trip ever to Mumbai, and I was quite excited to explore. I arrived in the evening and was promptly picked up at the airport by the amazing JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu transfer service to get to the hotel.

Lucky for me it only took 25 minutes to reach the beautiful JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu, located on the beach. Juhu is an area of Mumbai famous for expensive real estate and being home to many Bollywood stars. As we approached the property, it felt like we were arriving at a private mansion. We walked through security and then into massive lobby. The JW Marriott staff were quick to check us in and then it was up to the Executive Club Floor to see my one bedroom suite!

This one bedroom suite had a lot to offer and felt like home. The view looked down to the beach and pool. Some features of the living room were a cozy seating area, working desk and coffee station. There was also a power adapter for the UK style outlets.

Next door to the living room was the bedroom with the infamous super-comfortable Marriott bedding. It was so comfortable that I even enjoyed breakfast in bed, I’d recommend you to do the same!

The spacious bathroom was equipped with large bathtub with a view, and glass shower stall. White marble always makes me feel the luxury.

This one bedroom suite actually had a second half bathroom as well!

Back in the living room, the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu staff welcomed me with a gin and tonic cocktail kit. Infused gin and lots of tasty mixers are always appreciated. Thanks JW Marriott Juhu!

It was great to be on the same floor as the Marriott Executive Club Lounge. The club lounge looks over the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu’s pool and beach. At the Executive Lounge you can enjoy a full buffet and a la carte breakfast, afternoon tea and evening dinner with a very lengthy happy hour. Not only did they have tons of food to choose from, but they also had great staff. By the end of the stay, I made a few new friends that were passionate about their work like I am. I greatly enjoyed the breakfast in the Executive Club Lounge because it was very peaceful.

Another feature I greatly enjoyed at the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu were the plethora of high-end food and beverage outlets. During my stay I was able to visit their Italian restaurant called Mezzo Mezzo, their Indian restaurant Saffron, their oriental restaurant Dashanzi, and Bombay Baking Company. Read about Dashanzi in this separate article!

The Bombay Baking Company appears to be a standard café from the outside, however, when diving into the menu, I learned it was much more! Located on the lobby floor of the property Bombay Baking Company has a really nice menu with incredibly tasty salads, soups, sandwiches, desserts and high-quality tea. My favorite lunch was a combination of a salad and tea!

The JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu’s Quan Spa, fitness center and relaxation areas are located on the lower level. The fitness center is massive with tons of equipment. What really excited me about this floor were the relaxation areas. Separated into both male and female, the changing and relaxation rooms offer lockers, steam rooms, saunas, relaxation areas and hot/cold pools. There is nothing like having a lovely steam and then jumping into the ice cold plunge pool! I feel alive.

During my time with the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu I utilized their car service several times. Not only did I transfer from the airport to the property, and back again, I also went with one of their drivers around Mumbai for a day tour. During the tour I visited tons of local sites including Mani Bhavan (Gandhi’s house), Gateway of India, Mumbai Train Station, a southern Indian temple, lots of colonial architecture, and much more! Having the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu car service around made this whole tour incredibly easy. My driver Rama and the JW Marriott Concierge offered an incredibly personalized and thoughtfully planned experience. I’d recommend this if you visit!

Throughout my stay, I met dozens of incredible Marriott staff members who showed me kindness and gave a personal touch that really pushed this property into a high-level of greatness.

Quan Spa Review (Mumbai, India)

25 Jun 2018

My regular readers will know that I do enjoy dabbling in spa treatments from time to time. While in Mumbai, I stayed at the JW Marriott Juhu Hotel and was able to visit their Quan spa. The Quan Spa is located in the lower level of the property.

After looking over the spa treatment menu, I decided on the Quan Signature Massage as well as a 30 minute Cane Sugar and Tamarind Body Polish.

We were escorted to the treatment rooms, which were incredibly stylish and offered a peaceful ambiance. A perfect setting for a massage or spa treatment. The 90 minutes of treatments were soon over before I knew it and we were escorted back to the lobby for hot ginger tea.

Dashanzi Restaurant Review: Oriental Food in Mumbai

25 Jun 2018

After living around East Asia for the past seven years, I’ve gotten to know the majority of the Asian cuisines quite intimately. I never know what to expect when I find “Oriental” restaurants outside of the region. Lucky for me, I was pleasantly surprised by the Dashanzi Restaurant inside of the JW Marriott Juhu Hotel in Mumbai, India.

The evening started off with an oriental themed Gin and Tonic flavored with yuzu and infused gin. The Beverage Manager Bensan Varghese showed us his skills with this cocktail and several others offered at Dashanzi. We even had a private session with Bensan to learn more about all of his creations, which I will discuss later. To accompany the Gin and Tonic we were offered an interesting presentation of rice crackers which turned out to be very very tasty.

We sampled several popular items from the Dashanzi menu throughout the evening. I was surprised and impressed with the above-average quality of their salmon sashimi. Another dish that caught my attention was the Oatmeal Chicken. When a Westerner thinks of oatmeal, they tend to think of the breakfast item complete with sugar and cinnamon, but at Dashanzi it’s different! The oatmeal takes on a new spicy and crispy identity. The oatmeal and chicken are fried and bursting with flavor, keeping the oatmeal crunchy and the chicken juicy, this dish is a must try!

Dashanzi is more than just a restaurant, it’s also a full-on bar with lots of unique cocktails. We visited on a separate occasion to sample some of these special cocktails, including a Calypso, which is a cocktail that includes Thai chili, Jensen gin, syrup and pineapple juice. This cocktail alone is a good example of the kind of exciting combinations Bensan Varghese and his team are hard at work creating.

Dashanzi also offers brunch! At the brunch you will find a large selection of dim sum, sushi, a handful of wok-fried dishes, desserts and more. Overall, I was quite impressed by the quality, flavor and selection of items.

I also have to mention that they did an absolute impeccable job at helping to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday! The whole team helped to make the night super special, thus a perfect spot to spend your special occasion. The chef performed a table-art dessert which was not only beautiful but delicious. Thank you again and well done JW Marriott Juhu Mumbai Team!

All in all, despite having the generic “oriental cuisine” stamp Dashanzi does a surprisingly good job at producing some very tasty food. I also have nothing but positive things to say about other restaurants at the JW Marriott Juhu Hotel in Mumbai. Be sure to read about the hotel here. Whether it’s for drinks, a meal or brunch I can easily recommend you to visit Dahsanzi in Mumbai!
