We have had revolving restaurants, ice lounges, and beachfront cafes. Now the city is ready to host its first floating hotel. The AB Celestial floating hotel will soon be in business just off the Bandra-Worli sea link. The hotel was inaugurated by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday.
It took two years to convert the concept of a floatel into reality, says the hotel's director Chetan Bhide. Check out these features of the AB Celestial hotel.
The features of this hotel are:
- Three tier luxury sky deck with dining flotel
- Capacity to entertain 660 clients
- 24 hour coffee shop, club lodge
- Terrace on fourth and fifth floors
Floatels have been operational in Kolkata, Goa, and Kerala but AB Celestial will be Mumbai’s first floating hotel.
Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) sources said the project cost close to Rs 20 crore. Parking arrangements have been made along a new road that leads to the 'floatel'.
