We asked Satender Tomar, head of a fleet of 35 concierge-like butlers at the luxurious new St. Regis Mumbai, to plan a single spectacular day in Mumbai…

I’d recommend combining two of the “aficionado programs” we offer at the St. Regis Mumbai.

The first: a personal shopping experience at Good Earth and an investment in its crockery. Let me know, and I’ll put in a word so they monogram your initials. I’d follow that up by ­planning city-centric shopping: Nirav Modi for exquisite jewelry and Ensemble for clothes with an Indian aesthetic.

Then pop off to a private evening cruise with Rajesh Dullaji, an Asian Games medalist, in a swanky yacht. Our butlers will accompany you and serve hors d’oeuvres and ­champagne.

I’d end the night by reserving the Magazine Street Kitchen, a theatrical kitchen and dining space, and having a local celebrity chef cook you a superlative meal before you head back to the Metropolitan Suite—my ­favorite—at the St. Regis.
