WHERE IS IT? The effortless marriage of French flair and Indian hospitality is unmissable from the moment you step into the property. The “Bonjour Namaskar” greeting sets the tone. As soon as I entered the lobby, I gravitated towards the rotating totem featuring motifs of Indian and French elements such as a peacock, art and fashion. I was told the totem’s role is to create pleasant and positive vibes. In terms of health and safety, my bag was thoroughly disinfected prior to security scanning and contactless temperature mapping was conducted.

The check-in staff were well-equipped and informed about the sanitisation and hygiene protocols, which are carried out according to Accor’s ALL SAFE programme.
