Almost Home – that’s how Aureole likes to position itself. Nestled in one of the bylanes of Andheri (E), the hotel is aloof yet connected (only a few minutes away from the airport). The short stay at the hotel reinstated the fact that the people at Aureole take their positioning quite seriously. We had a warm welcome, followed by lunch and a short tour of the hotel on request. Here’s a glimpse of our staycation:
This concept boutique hotel is the work of Dharmesh Karmokar and Nikhil Samani. Dharmesh, known for his prowess in developing brands such as Nom Nom, Silver Beach Cafe, Yogurt Bay and many others, makes his foray as a hotelier with Aureole as his first project in the space. Aureole, as the name suggests, revolves around the concept of the Northern Lights experienced in the Scandinavian region. True to its name, the hues and vibe at Aureole reflects the same. Spread over 7 storeys, each one has a story of its own.
The menu at Lume serves an array of world cuisine, from Mediterranean to Italian. However, after dining at the restaurant, I feel Indian food is their forte that extends the ‘almost home’ philosophy at Aureole.
