Sofitel opens first hotel in India

Sofitel Luxury Hotels announced the opening of its first establishment in India, the Sofitel Mumbai BKC, which is located in the city’s business district, the Bandra Kurla Complex.

Two other projects will shortly be completed, including a Sofitel So.

Featuring a contemporary architectural style, Sofitel Mumbai BKC’s decor has been created by the Franco-Spanish designer Isabelle Miaja who combined French inspiration with Indian culture. When designing this hotel, she was said to have drawn upon references from Indian art, including temples, sculptures, and emblematic monuments, while adding a contemporary touch.

Among the six bars and restaurants are the Pondichery Cafe, specializing in combinations of Indian and French flavors; and the Jyran, a restaurant featuring a classical Indian decor and proposing traditional North Indian cuisine. Also available are L’Artisan – Epicerie, Patisserie, Chocolaterie, a typical Parisian café; and the Bar Diamantaire, which hosts India’s first wine tower.

The Sofitel Mumbai BKC also has nine rooms for meetings and other events, in addition to a So SPA. Finally, the establishment also boasts a So FIT fitness center, which has fitness and health facilities and an open-air swimming pool.
