Sofitel Mumbai BKC
What We Love
- The spacious SoFit gym has floor-to-ceiling windows and a Kinesis system for resistance training — with free personal trainers to show you the ropes
- Midway between the airport and the historic sights of south Mumbai, the Sofitel is also close to the lively shopping and dining scene in Bandra
- Try lesser-known Indian cuisines at the Gujarati and Rajasthani restaurant, Tuskers
What To Know
- Weekends draw Mumbai residents both as overnight guests and for the weekend brunch; on weekdays guests tend to be international travelers
- Smoking is permitted on two floors and in specified outdoor areas; however, not all guests follow hotel policy, and some nonsmoking rooms and common areas smell of smoke
- The hotel offers a car and driver at an hourly rate, which is essential as there is not much to see within walking distance
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
Influenced by the hotel’s proximity to the Bharat Diamond Bourse, as well as French designer Isabelle Miaja’s personal lineage as the daughter of a jeweler, the interiors are a flashy blend of faceted façades, textured surfaces and lively patterns. Rough stone artworks and glittery oversize chandeliers welcome guests into the hotel’s lobby, and elevators with brown leather walls, etched glass doors and black and white marble inlay floors whisk guests to residential floors lined with damask wallpaper. A vibrant, sunset-colored spiral shell print carpet leads guests to the Pondicherry Café and Le Bar Diamantaire, which boasts a floor-to-ceiling wine tower.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are more sedate than the public spaces. A wallpapered panel sits behind the purple velvet–upholstered bed, which is flanked by brown cutwork-relief hanging lamps. All rooms feature hardwood floors and paisley-shape glass-topped desks, while bulbous gold lampstands illuminate both ends of the built-in sofa. A romantic soaking tub is visible from the bedroom through the bathroom’s clear glass walls, but the toilet and shower are behind individual frosted glass doors. In addition to Sofitel’s signature MyBed, the rooms are equipped with free WiFi, Kama Ayurveda bath products, delicious loose leaf teas, and Illy espresso machines.
Mumbai is sultry and sticky most of the year, so mornings are probably the best time to take a dip in the outdoor pool, where there’s a special section for children. In the evening guests can have a drink at the poolside’s casual L’OH Bar. The entrance to Jyran, the Northern Indian restaurant, is set over two tranquil bodies of water (with a metal sculpture of an elephant above the pool) and dishes up traditional Nawabi cuisine. After savoring Galouti kebabs and biryanis, guests can lounge with a post-dinner drink on the restaurant’s terrace. The next morning partake in the extensive breakfast spread at Pondicherry Café, and choose from croissants, hot South Indian dosas, Asian porridges, cereals, a variety of egg dishes and freshly pressed fruit and vegetable juices. For relaxation head for the So Spa, where light filters though the suspended gold glass and French brands Cinq Mondes and Gemology are used in the treatments.
In the Area
There is no shortage of dining options in the Bandra Kurla Complex. One of the best, just a two-minute walk from the hotel, is the Indian restaurant Masala Library, voted by Time Out Mumbai India’s best new restaurant for 2013. The hotel can arrange daytrips to north or south Mumbai; sights include Sanjay Gandhi National Park, the Gateway of India, and Juhu Beach.
