Have it all in Mumbai

Opulent apartments, beautiful guestrooms, restaurants, bars and even a shopping centre combine stylishly to make the Grand Hyatt Mumbai Business Destinations’ Best Luxury Hotel, India, 2013

Comments  

Grand Hyatt Mumbai is Hyatt International’s flagship contemporary lifestyle complex in South Asia, serving Mumbai, Pune and Goa. Located just 20 minutes from the international airport, 10 minutes from the domestic airport and with Mumbai’s key business district only five minutes away, this landmark destination is also ideally placed for leisure and entertainment.

Grand in scope and functional in design, Grand Hyatt Mumbai has redefined standards of luxury and service in India’s financial capital since 2004. With approximately 10 acres of mixed-use development, the complex is truly world-class. Created by an international team of designers and consultants, the complex was conceived by renowned architecture firm Lohan Associates, Chicago; the interiors are designed by Chhadha, Siembieda and Remedios of Long Beach, California; the landscaping was conceptualised by SWA Group Sausalito, California; lighting by Integrated Lighting Design, Marina Del Ray; and the artwork has been curated by Rajeev Sethi Scenographers, New Delhi, India.

Stay a while
Grand Hyatt Mumbai has 547 luxurious guestrooms, including 39 suites and one presidential suite. Grand Club, the hotel’s executive floors, offer exclusive privileges and amenities to guests, including the city’s most sophisticated and technologically advanced conference and meeting facilities.

Long-stay guests can check in to one of the 111 fully serviced Grand Hyatt Residences, available as one, two and three-bedroom apartments. They include separate living rooms and a fully equipped western-style kitchen as well as a dedicated entrance and a private swimming pool.

The hotel guestrooms and serviced apartments continue the open-plan, contemporary theme of the complex. Light-hued sycamore panelling is paired with golden Jaisalmer stone and bespoke artwork to induce a feeling of serenity in every room. Bathrooms are spacious and refined, with deep, luxurious marble bathtubs.

Grand Hyatt Mumbai houses an impressive art collection, showcasing over 100 commissioned pieces by established and upcoming artists. Inspired by the three great archaeological sites of Mumbai: the isle of Elephanta, the cave temple of Jogeshwar and Mandapeshwar, the art is conceived as an homage to the mythic and contemporary presence of Shiva, who embodies the interplay of opposites: tranquillity and agitation; love and wrath; creation and destruction.

Cooked before your eyes
Grand Hyatt Mumbai offers a range of exciting and innovative Indian and international fine dining options at the hotel’s four award-winning speciality restaurants: China House, Celini, Soma and Fifty Five East.

Designed to exude the warmth of a typical Chinese home, China House offers casual dining with a modern approach. The restaurant serves delicacies that include delectable signature dishes such as beggar’s chicken, hand-pulled dan dan noodles, Peking duck, black pepper king crab, and steamed crystal prawn dumplings, all complemented by an exhaustive list of wines and desserts. The design of China House integrates visible kitchens into a multiple-seating layout with table booths, private dining rooms and lounge.

The main feature of the China House Lounge is the island-style LED light bar, with an array of bottles and unconventional glassware that appear suspended on large glass shelves overhead. The in-house signature beverages, from classics to the unique post-dinner cocktails, enhance the feel of the lounge further. Multi-faceted in spirit, the stylish China House lounge serves as a versatile retreat and is an ideal place to party to high-energy music.

Celini, the authentic Italian restaurant, presents traditional recipes with a modern approach. Exuding an understated elegance, the interiors of Celini are contemporary and simple. The restaurant showcases a wood-fired pizza oven, rotisserie and charcoal grill – all built into its show kitchen, designed by Molteni of France.

Soma offers authentic specialties from North India and the Northwest frontier. Guests can savour a selection of tandoor-grilled meats, seafood and vegetables. The restaurant allows diners to see skilled chefs preparing their meals. The colourful and eclectic art at Soma reflects the moon in its serene moods, providing the ideal ambience for savouring authentic and traditional Indian cuisine.

Fifty Five East’s interactive kitchens offer Thai, sushi, Lebanese mezze, Western and Indian specialities prepared à la minute. Fifty Five East embraces the idea of eating out of the pan, off the grill and out of the wok. The design draws inspiration from the natural phenomenon of sunlight passing through leaves and branches in a forest, and the result is a textured look with uneven shadows in harmony with each other. The atmosphere is relaxing and child-friendly with table booths and lounge.

Gourmet relaxation
Offering an à la carte menu and an exclusive range of local teas, the informal Lobby Lounge exudes a welcoming, warm ambience and lends itself to both serious business meetings and casual friendly lunches. Highlights of the impressive beverage menu include the premium selection of Eau de Vie and the Indian single estate teas.

The bar offers a variety of international and Indian wines and showcases an eclectic range of vintage wines and Champagnes from across the globe. For connoisseurs of single malt, there is an extensive selection of whiskies. The snack menu features continental appetisers, specially created to complement the wines and single malts served.

Temperature-controlled bookshelf-style glass cabinets provide separate sections for red and white wine – sure to lure any wine connoisseur – and the community table is a fitting place for a rendezvous with friends and associates.
