Life in Mumbai is all about being innovative when it comes to utilization of space. When land becomes too crowded, you always have the waters of the sprawling Arabian Sea to fall back on. Be it the proposed coastal roads or the Bandra-Worli sealink, Mumbai truly is blessed to have a long coastline.
Talking about using space wisely, have you ever imagined dining on a Yacht, while you overlook Mumbai’s beautiful skyline? Well, regardless of whether you have or not, be ready to welcome India’s first floating restaurant, the AB Celestial, which certainly redefines exclusiveness! If you’re wondering what AB stands for, it is Aishwarya Bhende, the 21-year-old owner of the three-floor luxury dining yacht. It is operated by Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) in partnership with WB International Consultant and AB Hospitality.
Here are 5 things you need to know about the AB Celestial:
1. About The Yacht:
AB celestial was designed and built in Florida a couple of years ago, having a 3,000 sq. feet, three-tier luxury dining floatel with a sky deck, two galleys and a capacity to accommodate a minimum of 500 guests across four tiers.
2. The Different Levels:
The ground floor has five bedrooms which cannot be booked generally, but can be rented out incase you book the place for a reception or a party. The first floor houses their restaurant called Celestial Café which will serve Continental and European food.
