Our team members have no script; they’re free to craft the most genuine, exciting and bespoke Bombay experience for each guest.

IN THE HEART OF MUMBAI
Whilst Mumbai is the economic capital of India, Bombay is the city of dreams where slumdog millionaires and Bollywood heroes are born. Mesmerising travellers for hundreds of years, Bombay assaults the senses and captivates the mind.

A boutique hotel which is a complete expression of the city, celebrating its magic with chic, modern interpretations of historical features and paying subtle homage to Bombay’s heritage and bohemian past.

Design

HERITAGE
The hotel’s style is inspired by the city of Bombay, it’s transition to modern day Mumbai and its layers of design heritage. Abode is located on a bustling commercial street, in a heritage property built in 1910. The hotel’s wooden and iron façade has been fully restored and the lobby features an original 19th Century chandelier. The floors are laid with hand-made cement tiles by a Mumbai tile maker, using a 100 year old technique.

INSPIRED BY MUMBAI
Architect & Interior Designer Sian Pascale for Young Citizens combined the feel of luxury, the charm of a boutique hotel and a unique Bombay inspiration to source and create the furniture of the hotel. 20th Century colonial and art deco pieces have been sourced from Bombay’s second hand markets and lovingly restored for the hotel. Custom-built furniture designed specifically for Abode includes bed side tables made from chaat stands and library shelving inspired by Bombay roadside bookstores. Reclaimed Burma teak, salvaged from demolished houses has been used as flooring. Bedroom light fittings have been created using hand-thrown ceramic lampshades, turned hardwood lamp holders and neon. Fabrics used for soft furnishings have been sourced from vintage saris, local markets or handwoven by the charitable organization WomenWeave.


Abode is the sequel to a story that begun in 1910 when Bombay was a bustling port, brimming with traders from across the new world. The hotel began life as the private residence of David Sassoon, one of Bombay’s most industrious entrepreneurs, during the city’s commercial heyday. A local family specialising in antiquities, acquired the property in 1982 and ran it as a small guesthouse for many years until its true potential was realised in 2013.
