Juhu in Mumbai, just north of Pali Hill, is a Bollywood beachside redoubt, with killer Arabian Sea views from its waterfront high-rises and smatterings of Italian cafés. (In terms of celeb wattage, think Malibu, but at roughly 100 times the population and construction density.) Appropriately, it’s where the Soho House group (; from £90) set its sights some years back to make its first foray into Asia. After several delays, the club-hotel-hangout zone is open. The low-rise tower is complete, with a sea-facing gym, massive ground-level outpost of Cecconi’s (seating over 100) and some gorgeous (and welcome) tweaks to the by now familiar formula – Indian antiques and bright block-printed Jaipuri cotton quilts among them. The House Kitchen, dressed in a sigh-worthy shade of blue, turns out kathi rolls and chaat alongside macrobiotic grain bowls.
