Home to the country’s first seaplane and monorail services, Mumbai has established its position as one of India’s most popular cities. Adding another feather to it’s already colourful cap, the city is all set to open India’s first ever floating hotel! As if there wasn’t enough to see and do in Mumbai already, now you get a chance to float in luxury in the brand new 5-star hotel and experience a whole new (sea)level.

The AB Celestial Floatel is situated at the Maritime Board Jetty near Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Although it has been already inaugurated, the grand opening is scheduled to take place in September 2014

The Stats

-          The Floatel can carry up to 660 passengers at a time

-          The hotel will have 12 decks and 362 rooms on it

-          Hotel guests will have a 360 degree panoramic view of Mumbai and The Arabian Sea
The ‘Cool’ Stuff

There will be a mini Disney Land on one of the Decks!

There will be eight hi-speed boats, with a capacity of 40 each to ferry passengers till the hotel. A helicopter ferry service is also on the cards!

The hotel will have an open air 24 hour cafe, theatres, a mall, multi-cuisine restaurants, and a health club.

The coolest thing of them all you can indulge in water sports like jet skiing and sailing, that are set to open shortly. That is not all; they also plan to start boat rides after the monsoon season is over.

The Bandra- Worli Sea link is already a very popular attraction for both locals and tourists in the city; a giant floating hotel here will only add to its popularity!

So the next time you are strolling around at Nariman Point, do check out this amazing hotel and have a first of its kind floating experience!
