One of the hotel's new restaurants. Weíre thinking Ziya, presided over by a Michelin-starred chef
Itís been nearly 18 months since the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, but while the Taj reopened pretty quickly, the Oberoi has been closed to be completely gutted and transformed. And finally, itís been announced, itíll reopen April 24.
According to the press release:
The Oberoi Groupís luxury hotel on Marine Drive in South Mumbai has been completely transformed to offer fresh contemporary interiors, new facilities and the latest technology.
All guest rooms and suites have been renovated, and include spacious marble bathrooms.
In addition to the rooms, the hotel has redesigned the lounge area and is opening two new restaurants and a bar.
Although itís taken its time, itís a pretty smooth move. No bad memories anymore, right? Letís hope they make up for lost time in getting back into the swing of it.
The swank comes at a cost, though - rooms for opening night start at $595/£387. Wowzers.
