Four Seasons opens first Indian property

Luxury hotel brand Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has opened a property in Mumbai, its first on the Indian subcontinent. Set in a 33-storey glass tower, Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai has 202 rooms offering views of the city skyline, Mahalaxmi Racecourse or the Arabian Sea through floor-to-ceiling windows. Additional facilities include 500sqm of indoor meeting and function space, a 24-hour business centre, a fleet of 20 BMW 7-series limousines, and two restaurants specialising in Asian and Italian fare. A two-storey spa, opening later this summer, will offer traditional Ayurvedic therapies and western treatments in a contemporary setting. It will feature eight treatment rooms, wet areas, Chi Studio, pool, gym and relaxation lounge. Alongside the hotel, Four Seasons has launched the Hospitality Apprenticeship Programme – a two-year vocational training course aimed at young people from the local neighbourhood. “We want to ensure that the hotel has a positive impact, not only on its guests and the local business community, but also on those communities in its immediate vicinity,” said the hotel’s general manager Armando Kraenzlin.
