Sahara Star – Mumbai India
I lived at the Sahara Star hotel in Mumbai, India from September-December 2012. During this time I was working as Model/Hostess in India for Sahara. I throughly enjoyed my stay there and have always wished to return in the near future. The people are warm, friendly and incredibly hospitable. I highly recommend checking it out if you are planning on visiting Mumbai. It has serene ambience for both business and leisure travellers. The location is ideal as it only 10/15 minutes away from the airport and the hotel offers taxi services which is perfect so you do not have to flag one down in the street.
The hotel has a luxurious vibe with many attractions for example; a picturesque tropical lagoon that looks up to the world’s largest pillar less clear-to-sky dome. There are also three compound-curved, custom-designed glass elevators with panoramic views. It has 223 attractive rooms including 13 luxurious suites which are complimented by “7 specialty” restaurants which makes choosing places to eat each day/night a challenge!
The Ocean Restaurant is simply breath taking, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is beautiful. There is a private dinning room which holds India’s largest marine aquarium providing home to many wonders of marine life. The dining room is perfect for private soirees as well as special celebrations. It is exclusive in every manner and features customized menus, elegant table settings and special service.
During my stay, I was lucky enough to live in several of the Earth Rooms, each one overlooking the tropical lagoon. The guest rooms are furnished with either a king-size bed or twin beds. All of the Earth room open to a balcony where the guest can enjoy a relaxing evening & a spectacular view. Room service is good and there is a boutique gym and spa on the ground floor. There are several gift shops in the hotel and a bakery… YUM!
I loved eating at the Earth Plate! There is a huge selection of food to choose from and even the fussiest of eaters would manage to fill up a plate or two! I always found myself loading up a second plate at the buffet. The desert table is extremely tempting and I would often have to trial several cakes and different ice cream flavours after my main meal(s)… Thank heavens they have a gym! What I found impressive was the fact that there was always something different on offer every day. I liked the fact every now and then they would introduce foods from one particularly country i.e. One week in the month they may have a Thai week. And there would be an extra table of special dishes from Thailand to try out. The Earth Plate was by far my favourite place to dine at the Sahara Star!
I would love to go back in the near future 🙂
