Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has opened the doors of its first property on the Indian subcontinent, the Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai.The hotel’s 33-storey gleaming glass tower enlivens the skyline of the city’s emerging Worli district and serves as an iconic reference to the spirit of ‘new’ India.
The hotel’s 202 rooms and suites comprise some of the most spacious guest accommodation in Mumbai, showcasing excellent views of the city skyline, Mahalaxmi Racecourse or the Sea through floor to ceiling windows.
The hotel has two restaurants. San Qi (three energies) has been designed as a contemporary ‘food theatre’, inviting guests and local residents alike on an eclectic, culinary journey through the three energies at the heart of Asian cuisine - Japanese, Wok and Tandoor. Prato serves Italian cuisine in a stylish setting complete with spacious al fresco terrace overlooking the Hotel’s lawn and gardens.
The hotel facilitates international business with over 500m2 of indoor meeting and function space, a 24hr Business Centre, concierge services and a fleet of 20 BMW 7-Series limousines. In addition, the top floor “The Club” on the 33rd floor, offers its Members an exclusive selection of meeting and dining venues.
The two-storey Spa, opening later this year, will offer traditional Ayurvedic therapies and western treatments in a contemporary setting featuring eight treatment rooms (including one couple suite and a VIP suite), wet areas, Chi Studio (accommodating yoga, meditation and aerobic activities), pool, gym, relaxation lounge and Rossano Ferretti salon.
“It’s a real privilege to be planting the Four Seasons flag in India,” said Armando Kraenzlin, General Manager. “Mumbai is a big opening for the group and the Hotel is in an exciting part of town. It sets new standards in the city for luxury and service and is sure to challenge many Western preconceptions of what India has to offer.”
