A floating restaurant can never go out of style. What’s not to like? The swift waves of the water swaying the vessel, or the gorgeous sunset over the Arabian or the impressive food on offer? The high-concept floating cuisine in Mumbai has caught up and how!

With two of them already huge successes – at Gateway of India and Marine drive respectively, a third will soon be on the horizon. Girgaum Chopatty is where the latest floatel is coming up, to amp up the infinite leisure experience in the mega-metropolis of Mumbai. The floatels could also be used for throwing lavish wedding parties or to enjoy live band performances. It’s only during monsoons that they might face a bit of a problem.

For those looking for a niche experience, it is definitely worth all the time and money.
