Indian Art Hotel – Le Sutra

Prakriti (nature room)

Architects: Dr Art+ Design

Design team: Jehan Ara Poonawala, Ayaz Basrai, Zameer Basrai, Kunal Shah, Hemant Sonawane, Asmita Borwankar, Jignasha Doshi, Arefa Tevawala, Deepashri Chavan, Neil Dantas, Juhi Gupta, Aviral saxena, and Abhijeet Gondkar.

Le Sutra, Indian art hotel in Mumbai has extraordinary design focus. Here Indian mythology, philosophy and history get translated into comfortable hospitality, one which might take you to look inwards and upwards or at least tell hundreds of stories.

This 3 – storey refurbished, recently opened hotel (Bajaj hotels group) is resplendent with contemporary Indian art and craft based on worldview of Indian philosophy – 3 ‘Gunas’ (human attributes): tamas, rajas and sattva.

Gunas are tendencies or form of energy that exist within people, nature and things; connoting their temperaments, psychology and constitution; essential to the evolution of consciousness.

Each level is named after one ‘Guna’ and Le Sutra hotel has total of 16 rooms based on ‘characters’ (Ravana, Ashoka, Buddha) or ‘characteristics’ (sensuality, love, purification).

You can take a little tour of LeSutra website to know meaning of each elements laid out in various rooms. But today I am here to celebrate designers, artists and visualizers who made this Indian-dream possible by paying amazing attention to detail; be it flooring, bathroom, bed, chairs, cushion, lamps, inlays or artifacts.

Above image of Prakriti room on ‘Satvic’ floor symbolizes nature at physical and ethereal level. The beautiful painting in the room is by Ajay Gulati.

exotic Indian interiors


What visual bliss other than having them (of course peacocks!) dancing around in my courtyard!

Architects designers: SE ARCH – Studio for environment and architecture

From vivid array of work done by SE ARCH team theses interior spaces have been chosen keeping in mind the traditional Indian exotic outlook.


Step inside through this columns and arches; an exotic world awaits you.


Those banana leaves should be on my dining table!


The meal is being served right here. But let me have an eyeful of these carvings first.


The Indian thali. Wow! I am going to get all 32 dishes!(traditionally 32 various dishes used to make a royal meal)


Satiated, I am going to laze in the courtyard. How can ikat  be faraway.


Verandah has these jaislmer stones warmth but colours give a feel of amazing attangudi tiles.


Central courtyards always serve a purpose in extreme climates. They are so designed as to work as air shaft. Warm air rises and is let out at second level through ventilators and cooler breeze comes in through thinner slits and openings at the periphery of the house.

But I am thinking of 100 other ways to décor the courtyard!


If still not satiated go out, green grass is not at the other side of the fence!
