An Oasis of Calm, in the Midst of a City that Never Sleeps

An Oasis of Calm, in the Midst of a City that Never Sleeps

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it’s not luxury.” I came across Coco Channel’s words while scrolling through Pinterest and it got me thinking. Comfort isn’t only about accessories, but about every aspect of one’s life. Whether it’s the shoes we buy, or the homes we live in. All these aspects come together to define us.

Living in Mumbai, the city of eternal summer, there are far too many days when the sun just feels a little too hot, and the streets a little too crowded. That’s why ‘home’, here, means more than a place you return to at the end of the day. It’s the place that allows us to unwind, relax, and ruminate ~ leaving the city behind.

When I came across Raheja Imperia-I, a luxury residential project in the heart of Worli, it seemed like the perfect spot to call home. Here, the city dissolves into the background, especially as you step onto the rooftop. Here, comfort is at the very core of the layout; whether it’s the expansive open windows, or the rooftop that’s more than a terrace. After all, who wouldn’t want a home where you can step onto the terrace for a leisurely plunge in the pool, or to catch a quick movie?

Imagine taking a dip in crystal clear waters underneath the night sky, floating in an infinity pool that overflows into the city ~ all this at 677 feet above the urban frenzy! It appears that in the skies, there is a reign of sheer tranquility. Of course, knowing that its Asia’s highest residential infinity pool ~ just adds a touch more glamour to it all.

Just nearby, the Private Club is open with some tempting delicacies. And right next to these delightful waters will be the Sky Media Zone, an open-air seating area to enjoy a theatrical spectacle in the pure night air. And the endless vistas will always be a delightful cherry on top of this delectable cake!

The more I inquired, the more I realized: this space is as much about comfort as it is about luxury. At Imperia-I, residents won’t just enter their homes, they will enter their world.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe comfort is essential for luxurious living?
