About us
The Orchid - An Ecotel Hotel in Mumbai is Asia's first certified eco-friendly five-star hotel. This 372- room hotel is strategically located adjacent to the domestic airport making it a convenient place for the business traveller to stay.

Everything is designed so as to be unobtrusive. Like The Club Privé room, an exclusive club floor with a private lounge and butler service. Or the well-appointed business and conference center to take care of your business needs in Mumbai.

The exclusivity of The Orchid is experienced as soon as one enters the atrium that is serenaded by a 70-foot indoor waterfall. Around the waterfall, on the first level is the Boulevard, the 24-hour coffee shop. The beautiful Orchids growing there give you a feel of the truly Orchid experience. Besides, The Boulevard provides a unique guaranteed time-bound service aptly called the "Lightening Menu" or the "10 Minute Menu". If the service is even a minute late, the meal is on the house!

From the first level to the top most.
Mostly Grills the lovely roof top barbecue restaurant serves modern fusion cuisine. The setting is a very surrealistic Mexican village with a pool by the side and the breathtaking view of the airport runway on the other.

And then the piece-de-resistance.
South of Vindhyas which many Mumbai gourmets consider the best Indian restaurant in town, is a unique concept showcasing the cuisine and culture of South India. Here in a very ethnic temple setting you can experience the intriguing flavors of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu & Kerala, the musical performances only go to serve as the perfect accompaniments. Abutting South of Vindhyas is Merlin's. The name itself conjures images of magical concoctions that will help lift your spirits and unwind, and what's more Merlins is open till 3.00 am, giving you ample time to enjoy the magic. At the lobby is The Gourmet Shop, a deli and cake shop.

ENVIROMEASURES

Construction

"A tree always grows from its roots, Every building needs a strong foundation"

Architecture
Passive Energy Conservation Efforts in Design

the facade
Depressions and protrusions in the facade play an important role since majority of the dead walls remain under shadow thereby reducing the surface radiation.

The plan configuration
the building is designed with 72 rooms facing the atrium; therefore these rooms are not directly exposed to the external elements thus reducing the heat load.

Natural lighting in the atrium
This has been achieved by skylight as an architectural element, detailed in a manner of doubly layered domes to reduce heat load and noise levels yet admitting maximum natural light in the atrium space.

Roof top
The swimming pool is located on the rooftop with 4 feet of water body, which acts as an insulator from the heat. KoolDeck is applied around the swimming pool deck to reduce the glare and the surface temperature so that one can walk barefooted around the pool. Operational Practices
