Udaan Woodberry Hotel & Spa, Gangtok
When we partnered with Udaan Hotels & Resorts to design their upcoming hotel in Gangtok, the furniture for most rooms was already in place and it fell upon us to design the property around the existing assets. Working within the client’s budget, we overhauled the design of the furniture in the guest bedrooms and took complete charge of the fabrics and finishes that would be applied to them.
The property is located a little ways away from the hustle and bustle of the heart of Gangtok, which gives it access to spellbinding views of the surrounding mountains, but is also a slight disadvantage for tourists who want easier access to the city. To counter this, we came up with a boutique design concept for the property, which saw us add a family of pastel shades to elevate its look.
The banquet, corridors, reception, restaurant, spa and other common areas were designed with the boutique theme in mind, and the bold, expressive colour palette of the hotel is a strong differentiator for it in the region. The hotel garners excellent reviews for its ambience and design, as well as its cleanliness, hospitality and service, and is one of the highest rated properties in Gangtok.
