Planet Hollywood, the American theme restaurant and hotel chain, is finally set to open its hotel in India at Mumbai. The master franchise rights for the Planet Hollywood brand across India have been acquired by Arch Millennium Corp, a Florida-based company.
The company plans to open this five-star Planet Hollywood Hotel on the site of the former Shelley’s Hotel in Mumbai at Colaba. The hotel is scheduled to open in 2012 and will be the company’s second hotel in the world. The first Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino opened in Las Vegas in 2007.
The Las Vegas gigantic resort has 2,600 rooms dedicated to specific movies, a three-acre casino, and a 7,000-seater theatre. In the same way the Mumbai hotel will be more of a five-star luxury business hotel where the guests will be treated as celebrities.
Planet Hollywood floating restaurant will also be opened by Arch Millennium. This will be situated in Colaba, on a pleasure yacht, which has already been imported from the US. The restaurant named Oceanis, is a four-level boat, anchored in Mumbai, containing a variety of multi-cuisine restaurants, bars, lounges and coffee shops, seating 400 patrons.
Arch Millennium has submitted plans to the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee (MHCC) to raze down Shelley’s Hotel, and rebuild the Planet Hollywood Hotel on the plot, which falls in a heritage precinct. This hotel may not have a casino but will be a five-star hotel, following the celebrity status of Planet Hollywood.
