We wanted somewhere to stay not too far from the international airport for the last night of our holiday in India and chose Le Sutra based largely on its own website and T A Reviews. We were not quite sure what to expect but we were not disappointed.
The Le Sutra is a small, stylish boutique hotel located in a vibrant and well to do part of Mumbai just a short walk from the Carter Road promenade. It is a busy area and can apparently be noisy late at night when particularly at the weekends with the night life. In our case I slept solidly and did not hear a thing but my wife was woken up by noise from the street.
The key feature of the hotel is the interior design with the theme of each room being based on aspects of Indian mythology. The room design is stylish, elegant and tasteful and the standard of workmanship, tasteful decor , art work and lighting combine to make staying in them a very very pleasant and comfortable experience. We are in the hospitality business and we believe that a guiding mantra for any hotel is that guests should feel that they are the first people to have ever used a room. Le Sutra came very close, the hotel being spotlessly clean and well maintained throughout.
Whilst the design gives the hotel its uniqueness, mention must be made of the staff for whom nothing but nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were courteous, attentive without being intrusive and very helpful . Anjali at reception was exceptional. It is invariably the little things that make a difference and in our case Anjali recognised that I had a bit of a cold and offered some ginger tea. A little later the Managing Director rang to ask how I was and recommended and provided an ayurvedic remedy which was much appreciated and did the trick.
An unexpected surprise as that when we checked out we were presented with a gift as a memento of the hotel. The gift in keeping with the whole tone of the hotel was stylish and very well done.
Our plane back to Auckland did not leave until 11.55 p.m. and we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel whilst we explored Mumbai during the day. We were also able to use a room to freshen up before leaving for the airport in the evening.
Staying at the Le Sutra was an exceptionally pleasant experience and we have no hesitation in recommending it to others. If we are ever in Mumbai again Le Sutra is where we will be staying.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Sutra is the thread that blends aesthetics, hospitality and mind space…effortlessly. Interestingly, Le Sutra is the only Hotel in the world based on the Indian philosophy and narrated through contemporary art! The hotel wins admiration for the intricately crafted inlays and artifacts, uncompromising comfort, its living-up-to-the-hype restaurants (Out of the Blue, Olive) and the fabulous location (Bandra is touted as the queen of suburbs of Mumbai). With 14 uniquely individually-themed Indian Art rooms at Le Sutra and 8 comfortably stylish apartments at Sutra D’Onyx, the guests are literally spoilt for choice. Our client base consists of 40% foreign internationals who find the exciting packages such as Senorita (single lady), the Weekend special (it doesn’t get lower than this), the Celebrations (they make it unique) and the Experience (adored by couples) really difficult to resist. Our Yoga and Art tour packages have further enhanced the Indian Art image of the Hotel. Every guest is pampered to the core and the surprise room-theme-based gift on check-out is an absolute clincher! Le Sutra indeed has a unique product to offer to their guests, who are often heard stating that the pampering offered at Le Sutra, Mumbai, is grossly missed by them when they go visiting other locations in India. The Le Sutra team is extremely open to constructive feedback and are solely committed to make the Le Sutra Hospitality experience the best and one of a kind.Come..visit us..and we assure you it would be worth the time spent in knowing about a Hotel which breathes Indian philosophy for its very existence. ... more less
