My work takes me of­ten to Mum­bai, known as the Max­i­mum City, a me­trop­o­lis known for hous­ing some of the best brands in the hos­pi­tal­ity busi­ness. While in Mum­bai, one of my most pre­ferred ho­tels is The Westin Mum­bai Gar­den City. In­spired from the win­ning life­style of the young achiever, The Westin Mum­bai Gar­den City serves as the per­fect re­treat for the new-age Cor­po­rate and Busi­ness Trav­eler. The ho­tel of­fers an ex­clu­sive nov­elty in de­sign, con­fer­ence ameni­ties and event con­cepts sup­ported with unique brand pro­grams. Lo­cated in the bur­geon­ing busi­ness district of Mum­bai, this ho­tel has con­ve­nient ac­cess to the In­ter­na­tional and Do­mes­tic Air­port as well as shop­ping ar­cades. The ho­tel’s ef­fi­cient team led by Gen­eral Man­ager Sharad Datta en­sures that each stay in the ho­tel is a mem­o­rable one char­ac­ter­ized by flaw­less style and adept ser­vice.

Food en­thu­si­asts will be de­lighted at the range of cuisines of­fered by the ho­tel’s var­i­ous food and bev­er­age out­lets. Led by Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Rahul Dhavale, the kitchen team en­sures that ex­cep­tional food is a part of a mem­o­rable stay in the ho­tel. Prego, the Ital­ian fine dine in the ho­tel is a chic and lively place for a great meal. Feast on fresh pas­tas, home­made bread and de­li­cious hand-tossed piz­zas while gaz­ing at tal­ented chefs work­ing in the live kitchen. Rus­tic Ital­ian fare, tan­ta­liz­ing aro­mas of freshly baked panini and foc­ca­cia and freshly brewed cof­fee, piz­zas from the wood­fired oven, an open kitchen in­ter­spersed with cheer­ful and ef­fi­cient ser­vice make for an in-

One of the ma­jor at­trac­tions of this el­e­gant res­tau­rant is a tal­ented and friendly ban­gle maker who cre­ates gor­geous Ra­jasthani style ban­gles in var­i­ous de­signs. Watch­ing him cre­ate ban­gles is a vis­ual treat and def­i­nitely adds to the charm of Kan­gan.

The found­ing prin­ci­ples of the Heav­enly Spa are based on The Seven Pil­lars of ‘Well-Be­ing’ such as Beauty, Life Bal­ance, Har­mony, Aqua, Vi­tal­ity, Na­ture and Nutri­tion.
