The Westin Mumbai, Garden City | HOTEL
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. With 269 spacious and contemporary guestroom and suites offering the signature Heavenly Bed and Bath, high-speed internet access, ergonomic workstation, refreshment center and enhanced room amenities; the hotel is equipped to support residential conventions. There is a designated floor and protocol to acknowledge ‘Single Lady Travelers’ staying at the hotel. The Westin Executive Club lounge offers guests staying in Executive Club rooms and suites an exclusive space ideal for informal business meetings or moments of repose throughout the day.

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-
viting and memorable culinary journey. Prego’s gourmet Italian deli, Prego Pronto is a contemporary Italian retail and gourmet showcase offering unique food and beverage products and gifts in a modern environment. For those who prefer to stick to our very own Indian cuisine, Kangan is a great place to be. Flashes of color, breathtaking views, and the subtle glow of candles married to the mouth-watering aromas of Indian spices converge at Kangan where guests come and enjoy Indian flavors. Refined northwest-frontier cuisine is magically crafted by expert chefs that reinvent Peshawar traditions. Succulent kebabs, freshly-baked Indian breads, and an eclectic selection of Indian spices mesmerize guests with the exotic flavors of the region. Kangan offers delectable and aromatic taste platters to entice and encourage family style dining. Inviting private dining rooms offer a lingering ‘Personal experience’ while interactive show kitchens and live clay oven or Tandoor cooking adds a theatrical element to the restaurant keeping the excitement and interest alive for a truly engaging dining experience. 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. Seasonal Tastes, the all day dining restaurant offers great views of the city in addition to a great meal. Those looking for a drink to unwind can visit Eighteen the Lounge.
The Heavenly Spa by Westin is the perfect place to unwind. With a soothing environment that makes you feel at ease from the time you step foot into it, the spa offers treatments which incorporate botanicals and fruits of the region to provide meaningful holistic offerings. 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. I tried The Heavenly Spa massage which includes a heated compress that includes muscle relaxation followed by a Swedish massage that leave you physically relaxed and mentally uplifted.
Located in the city’s thriving business district, The Westin Mumbai Garden City is designed with keeping a guest’s well-being in mind.
