The lodging choice usually is about your style, but sometime is driven by a budget and there is plenty of accommodation ideas in a dynamic city like Mumbai. We did the good part of the job for you picking two great solutions for different pockets.
Solution 1: Le Sutra
If you are looking for the splendor and a fairy experience Le Sutra, The Indian Art Hotel is definitely your place.
Le Sutra –in Sanskrit Sutra, means “rope or thread that holds things together– is an art boutique hotel, made bay artists, designers, curators, philosophers, visualizers that all together created this dreaming place.
Each floor is based on a Guna, a tendency or attribute that sits within people, nature and things. There are three Gunas: Tamas, associated with excessiveness; Rajas, associated with action and Sattva, the balance and minimalist state of mind. You can optate for the floor that best fits yourself, since every room is like a virtual canvas that narrates stories, mhyts, philosophies of India’s cultural heritage.
A room for two is around $100 per night on Booking.com. The hotel feature a Spa and there are two restaurants: The Out of the Blue serves a variety of continental food. Mediterranean food is available at the Olive Restaurant.
