Located in the heart of Old Bombay, Abode is the sequel to a story that began in 1910 when Bombay was a bustling port, brimming with traders from across the New World. The hotel was initially set up as the private residence of David Sassoon, one of Mumbai’s most industrious entrepreneurs. Back in 1982, during the city’s commercial heyday, a local family specialising in antiquities acquired the property and ran it as a small guesthouse for many years until its true potential was realised in 2013.
Abode became the city’s first luxury boutique hotel. It is a new breed of independent hotels offering a refreshing contemporary approach to the modern global explorer who seeks an authentic, personal, and genuinely engaging experience. It sits in an elegant colonial building whose period features have been lovingly restored and infused with the best of modern design. Abode has crafted a guest experience that rivals anything currently on offer in the city, whilst breaking all the rules of traditional hotel management. It is a tranquil haven of beautiful design and luxurious accommodation – a boutique hotel which is a complete expression of the city, celebrating its magic with chic, modern interpretations of historical features, also one paying subtle homage to Bombay’s heritage and bohemian past.
Its 20 elegantly appointed rooms boast a unique atmosphere displaying gorgeous vintage furniture and original artworks. Guests enjoy complimentary breakfast, complimentary 24-hour, unlimited high-speed WiFi, a peaceful treatment room, carefully curated shop, café and room service.
The property is also perfect for those looking to host intimate baby showers, family reunions, or meeting up with friends. Given the layout of the property, people can stay socially distanced, yet come together in the common area. Groups of up to 10 are ideal for this setting.
Currently, they are offering a rate of 5,000/- + taxes per night. The rate includes breakfast, and a complimentary bottle of wine.
