Reviewed 19 February 2012

The hotel has only been open for two weeks but it is really excellent. It is in an area that doesn't really feel like Bombay: it's all new high rises and broad avenues. Much of
the area is still a building site. Even in peak time, this Sofitel is only about 30 minutes from the domestic airport (although it would take a lot longer o the international)

From arrival to departure, the staff were helpful, thoughtful, professional and fast. I had forgotten to print my itinerary before I left (you need a printed itinerary or boarding pass to get into an Indian airport). I remembered just before checking out and they let me use the computer in the back office to log in to Tripit and print it out. That is that attitude of the staff to every issue.

The gym / health club deserves a special mention. At the moment, it's only open to guests so you usually have it to yourself (they do, apparently, plan to sell memberships to people working in the yet-to-be completed offices around the hotel). They have brand new Technogym equipment -- 4 treadmills, 5 other cardio machines, a good range of dumbells and 3 of the new cable machines. There is a computer built into the wall behind the cable machines -- you pick the body part you want to train and it shows you 10 or 12 different exercises for those muscles (with a video)

I don't normally use executive lounges but I did use this one. There is an amazing range of veg and non-veg food at the cocktail hour and they even offer you bring you small hot dishes. No-one could need dinner after eating all this. The orange juice and pesto shot sounds revolting but is, in fact, delicious. The staff are very friendly and enthusiastic. I also found room service good and fast but I didn't try either of the restaurants.

The only slightly unnerving experience is that the staff have been told to say "bon jour" (or "bon soir") and "namaskar" (a typical Indian greeting) every time they see you. The mischievous bit of me did consider launching into a reply in French but the people were too nice for that kind of trick.

The rooms are high tech and very chic. Normally, I'd think it was a bit pretentious but this hotel pulls it off.

Very, very impressive. Let's hope there will be more Sofitels like this in the future

Room Tip: The junior suites at the end of hallways are great although the bed is a bit close to the door for m...
