From November 12-19, the dates of Sachin Tendulkar's final test match at his home ground in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, one of the city's most respected hotels will pay special tribute to the legendary cricketer's monumental achievement on the field. The hotel has turned itself into a completely personalized experience for Tendulkar and his team. Almost all the amenities such as pillow cases, ornate framed collages and special turndowns have been customized for the Master Blaster. On display in the lobby is a cricket-themed flower arrangement. A plaque near the hotel tower mentions the year it was constructed, which coincides with the cricketing hero’s year of birth, 1973.



Established in 1901, The Taj Group of Hotels is one of Asia’s largest and finest group of hotels. For over a century, The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, the iconic flagship has set a benchmark for fine living with exquisite refinement, inventiveness and warmth.
