Halfway between the airport and Colaba, in the burgeoning Worli district, the new Four Seasons Mumbai is a study in contrasts. The 33-story, 202-room hotel, open since May, lies close to Lehman Brothers’ offices here, but it also sits hard upon a slum, visible from some rooms. The property handles these contrasts well, however, providing both respite from (a quiet spa, a fleet of 20 Series 7 BMWs) and engagement in (well-versed concierges, neighborhood mountain-bike tours) this throbbing city. San-Qi, the hotel’s stylish Asian restaurant—designed with natural materials by the Tokyo firm Super Potato—seduced master chefs from India, China, and Japan to come to Mumbai, and its sushi guru is the only chef in the country licensed to cut blowfish. From $480 to $1,300. At 114 Dr. E. Moses Rd.; 91-22/2481-8000; fourseasons.com.
