The Painting of 'Makeba' Welcomes The Guests

A step into the edifice takes you into an aura of grandeur. The mint and gold hues welcome one into tranquillity and opulence. Then, the painting of 'Makeba,' lionizing the wall at the entrance, receives its guests.


This floor has been earmarked 'Beanary'. It offers cafe-style dine-in immersing you in the aroma of beans and leaves. It follows a tropical, informal theme with a casual dining setup and board games.

Peppered With Biophilic Elements

Th entire property has been painted in a green and blue colour palette with neutral greys and hand-painted wall art.

The First Floor Characterizes Persian-Moroccon Style

A feast for the vegetarians' tummies, the first floor- 'Persia- The pure veg fine dine.' - also pleases their eyes with a scenic view through a Persian-style pane.
