We gave ourselves a brief to take a small hotel nestled in one of the most vibrant streets in Mumbai and make it as significant as any other in the world truly a pipe dream.
Fired by the concept, several artists, designers, curators, philosophers and visualizers were inspired to take on the challenge. What followed was a tomb of research and the team applying head and heart, amongst many works, rejections and re-works created Le Sutra the world's first Indian Art Hotel..
Taking from a palette of philosophy, myth, art form, and historic pride, it turned out to be quite a journey as we delved across time in our search of the illusive Indian-ness.
At Le Sutra we've tried to weave thousands of years of Indian ethos and narrate it through contemporary Indian Art. Come, join us in our discovery

Stories to tell The 16 rooms at Le Sutra are based on 'characters' (Ravana, Karna, Buddha) or 'characteristics' (sensuality, love, purification) inspired by Indian mythos.
Every room is a virtual canvas where the story forms the guest experience. It is subtly composed through art - paintings, artifacts, chairs, inlays and sculptures; narrating their part, showcasing diverse themes and philosophies.
