The Oberoi Mumbai
The Oberoi Mumbai stands tall in the southern point of town, a few steps in the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA) and at the core of Nariman Point, Mumbai’s business district.
Marine Drive (The Queen’s Necklace, as the long curving stretch of road is known as), its elegant Art Deco buildings and the Arabian Sea are only across the street. Restaurants, important tourist attractions such as museums, shopping as well as the heritage buildings of Mumbai’s Fort region are a couple of minutes’ stroll away. Public transportation is readily accessible, including clocks.
Style & personality
The understated elegance of this atrium lobby with its tall windows overlooking the ocean, the reddish grand piano along with modern seating is echoed round the resort. First artwork and sculptural water-bodies increase the sophisticated ambience. Seating in the lobby was made to ease informal meetings awarded the resort’s place and it has business centers.
