This is a unique split-level apartment with an open courtyard, plants and lots of natural light. Our guests call it a high-vibration home, located in a quiet street in Bandra - Mumbai's prime area, as well as its dining and shopping hub. The apartment is shielded from noise and traffic and yet just a few minutes from shops, restaurants and the ocean. The room is comfortable and tasteful with a queen-sized bed, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioner, walk-in closet and modern amenities.
Our home is a green, serene oasis in the heart of Bandra, Mumbai's premier residential location, as well as its dining, shopping and entertainment hub. Our guests call it a high-energy, high-vibration space that allows you to gather yourself, calm your senses and shut yourself out from the noise and chaos that Mumbai typically is. The apartment has plenty of natural light and is tastefully decorated with antique furniture, artworks and modern amenities that spell comfort for our guests. Each room is air-conditioned, has a comfortable bed for 2, and an ensuite bathroom with hot water. Breakfast is on the house and widely appreciated by our guests for taste and variety. Being a spacious apartment, there are common spaces - namely the courtyard and patio - where guests can hang out, read a book or work on their laptops and still have privacy. Wi-Fi is available in every part of the apartment, so you can well imagine sitting in the lush, green courtyard under the open sky, being watched over by a life-sized Buddha, listening to the birds, sipping a hot cup of tea and writing an email to your loved ones - all at the same time. This is what makes this apartment unique and a sensorial delight.
Accès des voyageurs
Besides their room, guests have access to common spaces in the apartment - namely the open courtyard, the patio and the living room (see the pictures). These are bright and airy spaces where guests can relax or work (these areas have Wi-Fi as well). The layout of the apartments allows guests their privacy and yet provides them the freedom to move around. Our guests really appreciate this.....The courtyard has a little kitchenette which is fully equipped with a refrigerator, kettle, coffee maker, water purifier, microwave and gas stove. Guests can use this kitchenette to help themselves to tea, coffee or drinking water right through the day.
