It was a long weekend and we decided to have a quiet weekend and the CHOICE fell on Hotel SOFITEL at Bandra Kurla Complex.
. AND the decision was justified as we read further.
On the 15th of AUGUST we reached the Hotel and were welcomed with a BONJOUR and NAMASTE which reminded us of Paris where one is usually greeted with a Bonjour salutation.
And it seemed that all the executives were conversant with the French way of welcome and it was wonderful and different.
Guided to the reception by a wonderful staff, check in was quick and we were guided to our SUITE by the conscierge.
The President suite was huge and clean and the AMBIENCE was as if it was like a Palace SUITE.
Being famished we decided to lunch at the Pondicherry cafe on the ground floor and the Buffet was marvelous and the spread large. It had everything from PiZZA to Parotha and RICE/Biryani and the dessert spread was one of the best.
This was supposed to be the story for the next two days with the Cocktails hours at the Lounge in the evening and which may be the most talked about.
The Lounge on the 14th floor is great with huge space and spread out sitting and the AMBIENCE just SUPERB.
The staff at the Lounge is one of the best and some of the names that I can remember are Ms. Supriya Pandey, RAHUL, Nimesh.
The SPA was another great location and the service was amiculate. The Therapist whose services were availed of were Ms. Sierra and Ms. Sarah and the others may also be efficient, and the massage a perfect way to relieve the body of tension and pain.
The Artisan Cafe is a world of its own and a wonderful and lovely place to be in.
The write up will not be complete without mention of the General Manager Mr. Biswajit Chakravorty under whose leadership the team functions and the service is always with a smile be it the restaurant or housekeeping and the efficiency speaks volumes of the management under Mr. Chalravorty.
The decor and the ambience reminds one of Paris and the welcome makes one feel as if Paris is in MUMBAi
The Hotel with Service and Smile and efficiency is SOFITEL and if one has not experienced it, one is missing not only the wonderful service and SPA and Lounge but the effect of PARIS. BONJOUR and MERCI!!!!!
