The Park in Chennai is an urban haven, located on Anna Salai in the heart of the business district of Tamil Nadu's vibrant capital. This elegant and lavish 214-room hotel stands on the historic premises of the erstwhile Gemini Film Studios. The Precincts that created larger than life heroes and heroines since the 1940's, mesmerising millions with Technicolor dreams have now been transformed to house the theatre of life in its private and public spaces.

The hotel creates a unique story of textures, surfaces, shadow and light inspired by film and performance in its various forms.

The drama within is boldly stated by the urban landscape that creates the story of textures, surfaces, shadow and light. A flamboyant and deep curved wall shelters and protects you as you enter the hotel. A traditional welcome with giant lotuses is interpreted with modernity by artist Hemi Bawa.

The dramatic entry leads to an atrium that is breath-taking in its simplicity. Pale cream limestone, aqua leather and chocolatey velvets create an oasis from the chaos of the city. The multi-layered lobby echoes theatre and performance stages inviting one to take part in the drama or observe from a quiet corner. At night the atrium lobby becomes an interactive space with projected images, light and sound, echoing the past life of its location.

A huge granite arc floats on glass to form the reception, becoming the nerve centre for all the backstage work in the hotel. The wall of light on the grand staircase, is our modern homage to walls of traditional deepams that light temples and homes across India.

Luxurious elevators swaddled in silk and leather showcase cutting edge video art on mini TVs whisk you to the private spaces. The show continues within the confines of the rooms of this urban haven. The colours are muted, the mood is calm, the feeling, utterly peaceful. Contemporary d├ęcor and rich textures create the perfect backdrop and pale beech wood flooring and frosted glass weave translucent dreams. Coconut shell inlay tables, parchment lights and the colourful hues of the grass chatais subtitle the regional location.

Relaxation is guaranteed by the soft bed with its custom-made 10-inch mattress and down feather pillows. Original film posters adorn the walls.
