JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts continues to grow its India presence with the opening of its second hotel in Mumbai, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. Located just one kilometre from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport Mumbai, the hotel is aimed at both business and leisure travelers.
Arne M. Sorenson, president and CEO, Marriott International, said, "India is an important part of Marriott International's global growth strategy. India is a great, growing economy and as that economy grows, its need for hotel rooms grows too. JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar will be a premier luxury business hotel in India, setting a benchmark for service excellence."
Spanning more than 15 acres, the new hotel's lobby is designed with open spaces and natural light anchored by a striking crystal chandelier descending down into an oversized marble bowl.
The property has 585 guestrooms, which include 163 deluxe pool-view rooms, 23 deluxe suites, 23 executive balcony rooms and one presidential suite.
On property dining options include the chic and contemporary JW Café, an all-day dining multicuisine restaurant with an alfresco seating area, and Romano's, which offers home-style Italian fare. The Romano's bar also offers cocktails and mocktails, as well as a selection of Italian wines. Located at the heart of the property is the JW Lounge, which serves as a cafe by day and a stylish lounge by night. The JW Baking Company offers pastries, coffee and deli favorites.
To accommodate large-format events and social gatherings, the JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar has a pillarless 10,000 square foot Grand Ballroom, indoor and outdoor convention spaces, and 11 meeting rooms with conferencing and business facilities. The property's JW Lawns and Dining Theatre can accommodate picturesque weddings and social gatherings.
The hotel also houses JW Marriott's new branded spa concept, Spa by JW. The Mumbai Sahar location is the first Spa by JW in Asia Pacific and the second worldwide. The spa promises to impart an environment of harmony and wellness, offering bespoke treatments and a range of classic spa rituals. All treatments are tailor-made to guests' exact needs and are focused on four distinct benefit states - Calm, Indulge, Invigorate and Renew.
The Spa by JW has seven treatment rooms, including one couples treatment room and one ayurvedic treatment room that offers ancient beauty rituals using fresh and natural ingredients. Other facilities include a private couples jacuzzi, a dressing and make-up room, two steam and sauna rooms and two separate jacuzzis for men and women.
Additional facilities include The JW Fitness Centre, open 24 hours a day. Poolside cabanas also offer a place to unwind and soak up the sun.
