Located on the cleaner part of the famous Juhu beach. An old heritage of Mumbai. This hotel has seen many a film sequences shot around its swimming pool. IN the 70s and 80s this used to be the bastion on many a Mumbai film personalities. Even now you may chance upon a few celebrities in the evening at one of the many daily parties that the hotel hosts on the sea side.
These daily parties could also be a nuisance to a leisure traveler.
Rooms are clean, moderate size. the double beds are meant for only two to sleep and can not accommodate a child of any age with parents. Its better to ask for a two bedded room and then join the beds which makes a larger bed and this then can accommodate a child with parents.
The toilet WC has hand spray. Most of the rooms have bath cubicles, wall and hand showers which have three different flow adjustments. Room windows are sealed, which is good. Rooms are quiet.
View from a ocean view room is pleasing. The ocean view rooms face West. If you take an ocean facing room, on floors from 2nd up, you can clearly view the parties going on on the sea side in the evening. You may spot a few celebrities once in while.
The breakfast is well laid out. Serves Indian and continental both. Be careful to ask whether a dish ,you are not sure of, is veg or non-veg; as the tags don't indicate either.
Lunch and dinner is usually a-la-carte. With some dishes they also give a side dish complimentary. For example when we ordered a vegetable main course dish, a small portion of dal makhani was served as accompaniment. Portions are adequate for two people. Soups come in large bowls and could be quite filling. Salads come is portions smaller than normally expected.
Go for a morning walk on the sands; its fantastic. You can walk out directly on the beach.
The swimming pool is smaller than half olympic size. I think its 15mx10mx2m. The health club is well equipped but can serve at max 6 to 7 people at one time. It would get crowded with more.
