bath­rooms with over­sized tubs, there is also the plush MYBED™ to sink into; other in­ter­est­ing touches are added by way of smokey, pat­terned glass and clas­sic pais­ley en­grav­ings around the shower area. The rooms are rem­i­nis­cent of tra­di­tional French baroque style, and the bevy of art­works present here in­ter­pret the theme of ‘A tale of two cities’ by com­bin­ing his­tor­i­cal In­dian mon­u­ments with French land­marks.

Set next to Mum­bai’s com­mer­cial dis­trict, the ho­tel is per­fect for busi­ness trav­ellers who can use it as a venue for high­pow­ered meet­ings, or as a place to un­wind af­ter a long day. Dis­cern­ing guests can rel­ish the ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing pam­pered with the best ser­vices, in­clud­ing a per­son­alised yoga class in the So FIT club, fol­lowed by a treat­ment in the swish So SPA that oc­cu­pies an en­tire floor of the ho­tel. Food afi­ciona­dos can sam­ple sump­tu­ous de­lights at Pondichéry Café, a 24-hour eatery that of­fers Indo-french and con­ti­nen­tal dishes. For deca­dent desserts, head to Ar­ti­san– Épicerie, Pâtis­serie, Choco­la­terie, and in­dulge in li­ba­tions at Le Bar Dia­man­taire, which hosts In­dia’s first wine tower-style cel­lar. For panoramic views of the max­i­mum city’s sky­line, head to L’OHPool & Bar, whose swim­ming pool is great for af­ter-hour splashes. Per­fect­ing this ser­vice à la française is the ho­tel’s Aus­tralian ex­ec­u­tive chef Dane Gil­bert, who over­sees the kalei­do­scopic se­lec­tion of restau­rants.

With an amal­ga­ma­tion of über luxe fea­tures, a strate­gic lo­ca­tion as well as haute bistros and re­splen­dent hotspots, Sof­i­tel Mum­bai BKC is poised to be­come a much­cov­eted stay.
