The House of Mangaldas Girdhardas, the 15 room Heritage Hotel in Ahmedabad has added an Indoor Swimming Pool, Health Club and Restaurant in its premises, called The Lotus Pool.
The theme of this space is inspired by a Pichhwai from Nathadwara in Rajasthan. The Mangaldas family is a believer in the Shrinathji deity and the lotus theme seemed apt for this new addition to the boutique hotel. The poolside restaurant is spread over three sections – an air-conditioned section, a poolside section and an outdoor section.
The Health Club and Massage Room (with a Shiatsu massage chair) is located behind the 10 meter long pool. The uniquely designed pool is raised 15” above the ground to allow easy interaction between the swimmer and person standing outside. Its ledge serves as a seat. The entire ceiling above is covered by a digitally created lotus fresco with a 17 foot long, 300 kilogram, mild-steel, calder inspired lotus mobile hanging from its centre. The same pattern is repeated in the glass mosaic tiled floor of the pool.
The Lotus Pool is the first ‘swim and dine’ restaurant of its kind and is open to all House of MG patrons. Entry to the pool is with a small cover charge that is fully set off against the food bill. There is an extensive choice of Indian and International snacks on the menu and the venue remains open from 7AM to 11PM daily.
