Sofitel opens first hotel in India

The avant-garde architecture of the new Sofitel Mumbai BKC fits perfectly into the city’s financial hub in the Bandra Kurla Complex, in Sofitel’s first incursion into India.

This five-star luxury hotel offers 302 rooms and suites, nine function spaces, five of Mumbai’s most innovative dining outlets and the sanctuary of a Sofitel So SPA. A heaven for business and leisure travellers, Sofitel Mumbai BKC exudes the seductive charm and vital energy of this dynamic Indian city, graced with French flair and elegance.
Sofitel Mumbai BKC is an ideal blend of French design and Indian culture, reinventing ancient heritage with a modern twist. Drawing its inspiration from Indian temples, carvings, iconic monuments and art, and infiltrated by famed French design, rich history and culinary savours. Re-interpretation of these two complementary worlds creates a whole new experience in a hotel that is one of a kind.

Bernd Schneider, General Manager of Sofitel Mumbai BKC explains the challenges of this opening: “In India, we have the wonderful opportunity to launch our brand in one of the world’s most dynamic and fastest growing economies. India is still in the early stages of its own growth potential and we are very excited to be a part of this journey.”

“We are privileged to be located in Bandra Kurla Complex, the fastest growing financial hub in a city that is already at the epicenter of the incredible economic growth being witnessed by India. Bandra Kurla Complex is also the site of the Bharat Diamond Bourse” as Bernd says, link reminded with one of the restaurant named Le Bar Diamantaire.
