US President Barack Obama has booked the entire Taj Mahal Hotel for two days for his visit to Mumbai in the first week of November.

The 547-room property will be a no-go area for non-hotel staff while he is staying.

A heavy security cordon will be in place around the hotel and, aside from Indian Naval vessels, there will be a restriction on vessels in the vicinity of Hotel Taj.

According to reports, Mumbai police have been conducting land and sea drills in case of a breach of security.
