With 72 rooms facing the atrium, the scorching Mumbai heat stays out; needless to say the load on cooling the living spaces is thus drastically reduced. In addition, with the swimming pool perched on the roof top, a natural coolant is in operation. Whether it is the water treatment or the materials used, inside and out, just know that serious thought has gone into it to make it truly eco friendly. It is for this that the hotel got the distinction of being the first five star hotel in Asia, to win the Ecotel certification and to date has received over a hundred awards in recognition of our commitment to be a truly world class eco friendly hotel. The Orchid - Ecotel Hotel in Mumbai remains one of only six hotels worldwide to maintain this certification.
Kudos is due to the owner Dr. Vithal Kamat the management and staff for this terrific feat. So it is with joy that we invite you, our guests to celebrate not just your stay with us, but also to join in, in bringing a much needed eco awareness in our way of life. We are all partners and contributors in this global endeavor.
