October 12, 2017 - Hyatt Place Gurgaon - the best upscale business hotel in Gurgaon has recently hired Chef Prathamesh Kumta as the head of its Culinary operations which include Gallery Cafe - an all day dining restaurant & Bar, Events and In Room dining. As Head Chef, he will be in charge of overseeing all the culinary aspects of the kitchen, menus, training modules and, most importantly, securing the standards of excellence and innovative elements expected by both the domestic and international patrons.

Chef Prathamesh has over 13 years of experience in the hospitality industry and has proved his competence and skill in every endeavour that he has undertaken. While he specializes in Pan Asian Cuisine, his experiences across the country and abroad have honed his expertise in Western and Indian cuisine as well.

After completing his Diploma from Institute of Hotel Management, Chennai, he embarked on his culinary journey with IHG at Intercontinental The Grand, Mumbai moving onto Grand Hyatt, Mumbai as a part of the pre–opening team of restaurant China House. From Mumbai to Sheraton Full Moon in Maldives, Prathamesh came back to India to join Hilton in Bangalore. His last assignment before moving back to the Hyatt was with The Leela Ambience Gurgaon where he was overseeing the large and complex multi-cuisine restaurant Spectra. Both China House and Spectra are considered some of the best world-class restaurants in India and have individually won awards while Chef Prathamesh was associated with them.

I look forward to working together with my team, support them and give my best to enhance the food and beverage operations and guest experience at Hyatt Place Gurgaon,” said Chef Prathamesh.

Though Chef Prathamesh has great expertise in all kinds of cuisine, he personally enjoys cooking Thai dishes mostly due to the variety of ingredients used in it and the flavour it creates when put together. His signature style of cooking is to give traditional recipes a twist of modernity using garden-fresh ingredients, keeping the simplicity of the dishes intact.

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
