Abode
Mumbai

Billed as ‘Bombay’s first luxury boutique hotel’, Abode is design focused and locally inspired. The hotel began life as a private residence before being acquired by a local family who ran it as a small guest house until 2013, when its true potential was discovered. Built in 1910 the wooden and iron façade of Abode has been fully restored and the interiors renovated to reflect the city of Bombay and its transition to modern day Mumbai. Abode is a complete expression of the city, perfectly combining the city’s modern interpretations and historical features, paying homage to Bombay’s heritage.

Abode has the perfect location; a calm and refreshing oasis in the heart of the fashionable and historical epicentre of the city, Colaba, and just a five minutes’ walk (or a three-minute drive) from the iconic Gateway of India, as well as numerous trendy and unique bars and restaurants within a minutes’ walk. Abode houses 20 creative and elegantly appointed en-suite bedrooms, each featuring original artwork from local artists, carefully restored antique furniture, luxurious cotton linen and soft beds to sink into after a day exploring the frenetic city, as well as a flat screen TV and other modern comforts of a luxury hotel. The fabrics used for soft furnishings have been sourced from vintage saris and local markets, while the bedroom floors are a mix of unique handmade art deco tiles and salvaged teak wood. The Superior Luxury rooms, the best in the hotel, have free standing bathtubs too, and double height windows to allow for plenty of light and pretty views over Colaba. 

Delicious homemade breakfasts served in the hotel café and 24-hour Wi-fi are offered to all guests on a complimentary basis. In the evenings flick through the collection of books from India and abroad in the quiet library or enjoy Bombay inspired street snacks and sandwiches in the airy lobby. There is also a spa room for those wanting to indulge in a relaxing spa therapy.

Abode is the perfect mix of historic old-world charm and modern Mumbai, and the ideal hotel to experience authentic Indian hospitality in a chic and low-key environment.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.
Lisa St. Aubin de Teran

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
