Incorporated by the founder of the group Mr. Shapurji Sorabji, the Company opened its first property The Grand Hotel in 1922.
Grand Hotel being our flagship property was designed by George Wittet, one of Mumbai's best known architects at the time, who also designed best known landmarks in Mumbai such as the Gateway of India, The Prince of Wales Museum, Institute of Science, and Bombay House.
Behind the magnificent stone facade lie luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, aesthetically designed conference halls, a gourmet restaurant, and a thirst quenching bar, amongst other conveniences. Each one is simply yet tastefully decorated. However, it is service more than architecture, which ensures that our customers always return with a smile. Grand Hotel offers various amenities like room service, quick check-outs and a central location.
Ringed by the port and naval establishments on one side, the land fans out from here to encompass the city's major government and civic centers. Railways, post & telegraphs, art galleries, the museum and other important establishments lie within close proximity of an arc of a mere kilometer of Ballard Estate. Grand Hotel is centrally located in the heart of Ballard Estate which is one of the commercial hubs of Mumbai.
Panhala now boasts of Valley View Grand Resort - Hotel established by Grand Hotel (Bombay) Pvt. Ltd.
