Sofitel makes foray into Mumbai.
Featuring a contemporary architectural style, the hotel blends in perfectly with the urban landscape. The decor has been created by Franco-Spanish designer Isabelle Miaja who has skilfully combined French inspiration with Indian culture. When designing this unique hotel, Miaja drew upon references from Indian art, including temples, sculptures, and emblematic monuments, while adding an attractive contemporary touch. "Overall, the architecture should enable Sofitel Mumbai to stand out as a successful combination of Indian culture and French style, and with the project completed we have worked with French and Indian artists in order to give the hotel this unique aspect. The most striking feature is a metal elephant weighing several tonnes situated on the terrace of the Jyran restaurant which 'walks on water creating a memorable image" explains the architect Isabelle Miaja.
Among the six restaurants and bars included are Pondichery Cafe, specialising in combinations of Indian and French flavours and Jyran, featuring a classical Indian decor serving traditional North Indian cuisine. L'Artisan -- [euro][umlaut]picerie, PEotisserie, Chocolaterie is the perfect place to enjoy chocolate, cooked meats and cheeses just as you would in a typical Parisian cafe. For its part, the ultramodern Bar Diamantaire, gives pride of place to India's diamond traders. This bar, which features a magnificent design and India's first wine tower is the perfect place to meet up, whether for business or among friends.
Sofitel Mumbai BKC boasts nine meeting rooms ideal for conferences and events, in addition the hotel will features a So Spa and So Fit which will offer guests a genuine shrine to health and well-being. Copyright 2008 www.tradearabia.com
