Family friendly travelling in Mumbai

Most popular areas in Mumbai for family-friendly hotels

Pulsing with the energy of more than 20 million people, Mumbai is a frenetic and frantic place. But there's also a quieter side to this historic city, which bubbles up between the beach bars of Juhu, where family-friendly hotels lift themselves above the Indian Ocean. Bandra also has a clutch of refined places for those with kids in tow, loaded with lagoon-style pools and entertainment rooms. And that's not even mentioning the area of Colaba, where the Gateway to India meets oodles of comfy and affordable accommodation choices.

Top family-friendly hotels in Mumbai

The Sofitel Mumbai BKC strikes a fine balance between convenience and luxury for the traveling family. For starters, it's just a short tuk-tuk ride to the main airport, and it's got rooftop pools, modern lobbies, and in-room childcare services to boot. Meanwhile, the Taj Lands End on the edge of Bandra West is one for the families who want to kick-back and unwind after seeing the sights – think palm-fringed pools and palatial reading rooms. Then there's the acclaimed Holiday Inn option, sitting super close to Chhatrapati Shivaji International.

Where to find the best restaurants in Mumbai

Don't miss the famous Irani cafés of downtown Mumbai, where there are menus featuring spiced minced lamb kebabs and mouth-watering biryanis, all inspired by the ancient flavors of the Middle East, Kashmir, and Arabia. The throbbing energy of Crawford Market is another must. Here, there are sights and sounds and smells to keep the whole family entertained, not to mention enticing Indian menus of Gujarati curries and Keralan coconut dals alike. Be sure to stop at the multicultural bistros of Bandra, which now tout everything from American burgers to Tex-Mex.

The most popular things to do in Mumbai

Mumbai is a sightseer's dream come true, with awesome landmarks like the Gateway to India, Victoria Terminal, Fort George and others all on the menu of the local heritage walks or guided cycle trips through the heart of Fort and Colaba districts. After that, consider making a beeline for one of the many theme parks that pepper the peripheries of the metropolis. These range from the ice-dusted, sub-zero rooms of Snow World to the winding rollercoasters and loop-de-loops of EsselWorld. Alternatively, there's the great Sanjay Gandhi National Park, where daytime safaris reveal captive leopards, and hikes through the forest showcase langurs and spotted deer. And then – of course – there's Bollywood, which erupts in a medley of colorful Hindi sets and smiling superstars all over the city.

Best ways to get around Mumbai

You might want to avoid Mumbai's bustling light rail and metro systems if you want to get around as a family as these can get super busy, and traveling as a group is never easy. The best alternative is to engage a private hire care for the duration of your trip. This can usually be done with help from your hotel desk. Other lift options are abundant, too, going from independent taxi firms and drivers available on Uber, to the ubiquitous Bombay auto-rickshaw.
