Off late, I have been so busy that I really don’t get time to write on my blog . My work has taken physical toll on me . It is frustrating though . I badly need place to relax and nourish my body , mind and soul. A serene place to call home.
I asked for it and I found it . Le Sutra – India’s first art hotel situated in Mumbai. The hotel is truly a unique and spiritual experience with the most splendid mythological design, artwork and decor . This 16 rooms boutique hotel started in January , 2010 , decor of the hotel is hugely inspired by Vedic scriptures and Ayurveda Trigunas – Sattva, Tamas and Rajas.
Each Floor depicts Ayurveda Gunas - Ground Floor named as Tamas , Floor above is Rajas and Top Floor is Sattva, Reception Area is Called Kundalini .
Satva in Ayurveda represents purity - hence, the decor on this floor is very warm , welcoming , spiritual and soulful - Satva Floor has rooms named : Prakriti, Shuddhi, Nirvan & Mandala . Decorating these rooms with sacred objects is a sure way to foster a serene and soothing environment in the rooms and also achieve an exotic style. A stay in such place would be entirely a different experience . As rightly said by Joseph Campbell - “ To live in a sacred space is to live in a symbolic environment where spiritual life is possible, where everything around you speaks of the exaltation of the spirit”
Rajas represents passion that leads to activity– the decor on this floor is very vibrant , energetic, vivacious . Rajas floor has Dyuutya Room: Gambling (dyoot) , Kathak Room , Shringar Room , Karna Room
Tamas floor is yet to be unveiled,
Each floor , room at Le Sutra narrates a story , Story of Buddha , story of Karna , Lots of Art objects have been used that add visual interest and enhance the environment .
“Dove Hand Cuboard handle”
“Teak Root Budha”
I found the decor very nice , unique , whimsical and purely artistic. I think Le Sutra has created an ambience to suit your mood . Whatever suits your mood, or whatever mood you’d like to create. Its right there and the best part is Creative team at Le sutra is doing their bit to make world aware of the existence of ever older culture of India , its mythology and Ayurveda Science .
