OVERNIGHT RATE $161 (RAJAS ROOM)
Less hotel, more eccentric art museum, Le Sutra offers decorated rooms based on Indian mythology. Each floor and each key-turn reveals a new chapter. A team of 120 painters, 40 sculptors, and 15 designers weaved their magic in the creation of this boutique hotel in the artsy neighbourhood of Bandra, where Bollywood star-spotting is almost a sport. Pull up a seat under the festoon lighting in Out of the Blue cafe and return for complimentary buffet breakfast. In the side courtyard you’ll find the whitewashed Olive Bar & Kitchen offering Mediterranean fare while on-site day spa Angdai makes a massage a nobrainer. Grab a city map from reception and head out into the hubbub. Bicycles can be arranged. Leave time for browsing in the Karma Korner spiritual bookshop.
