Art hotels are a delight and attract more tourists to a place. World’s first handicraft hotel has been opened in Vizag by the Palm Beach Hotel.
Palm Beach Hotel has opened up its heritage wing in Vizag as the Andhra Arts and Crafts Hotel with rooms themed and created after traditional art forms of Andhra Pradesh.
The hotel and its decor are designed and handcrafted by artisans from Andhra Pradesh.
The hotel is filled with exquisite paintings, sculptures and various other art forms represent the traditional art and culture of Andhra Pradesh.
“The art forms that are placed in the corridors, rooms, entrances, and passages of the hotel almost make it look like a museum,” according to a visitor.
Palm Beach Hotel is the sister concern of Le Sutra, a hotel of Mumbai which is also the First Indian Art Hotel of the World. Their other elusive project is the Andhra Arts & Crafts Hotel which focuses on Tribal art homes and local craftsmanship of the state.
The Palm Beach Hotel has seventy exquisite sculptures and fifty art installations all of which are made by recognised and popular craftsmen of Andhra Pradesh.
The hotel also has a private beach, numerous restaurants, and a swimming pool. The unique attraction points of this hotel are the twenty-four rooms that exhibit leather shadow puppetry themes.
“The people are fully aware of various cultures and are always looking for unique experiences irrespective of whether they are on business or personal trips. We have tried to pay tribute to the culture of Andhra Pradesh by including some of the best traditional and modern art forms of the state,” Ms Mitali Bajaj of Le Sutra stated.
