    I would like to know what you guys think about the Sun n Sand hotel in Mumbai, where I would like to take my wife for a surprise.
    She is currently at home and I have been in Mumbai for 2 weeks now and she is coming here to visit me.

    I thought this hotel would be ideal as the location is great as it is by the beach, its within my budget range and seems decent enough for spending time with your partner.

    It would be good if the hotel serves some good food as well, so that we won't have to go out much or far from the hotel.

    I would also like to know what room options the Sun n Sand Hotel in Mumbai has.
