The Promoters

Established in 1991, Mars Enterprises and Hospitality has reflected the passionate and innovative spirit of its entrepreneurial promoter siblings, Sanjay and Rachna Narang. Sanjay’s ability to transform his unique vision into reality combined with the intuitive and individual design sense of his sister Rachna, is the ethos of all the Mars Group ventures.

The Group prides itself, as the company of ‘Firsts’ and its successful implementation due to the rare paring of micro management with a big picture vision, instilled by Sanjay, is its greatest strength. Mars has successfully launched the first ever boutique hotel in Bombay, ‘The Gordon House Hotel’, the first ever ‘self-service’ American style diner- ‘Just Around The Corner’, the first ever South Indian chain of restaurants that served non-veg dosas-‘Dosa Diner’, and the first ever Jazz bar and restaurant in the country, ‘Jazz by the Bay’. The list continues with the largest nightclub in Mumbai-‘Three Flights Up’ and a charming hamlet that transformed a small secluded town called Landour to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the foothills of the Himalayas.

The Mars Group’s current portfolio includes the ‘Waterstones Hotel and Waterstones Club’, a boutique hotel and luxury club in North Mumbai. ‘The Gordon House Hotel’ in South Mumbai has within its premises ‘Havana Café & Bar’, a South-American lounge bar and ‘All Stir Fry’, a legendary Pan-Asian restaurant in Mumbai. ‘Pizza by the Bay’, again in South Mumbai stands as an iconic casual dining restaurant and ‘Eat Around the Corner’, is a popular all-day dining venue in the bustling heart of Bandra.

In Landour, a hill station in the foothills of the majestic Himalayas, the Mars Group portfolio comprises of ‘Rokeby Manor’, a quaint English style mountain hotel and ‘Rokeby Residences’ offer an array of holiday mountain homes with picture post-card views. To enhance the experience at Landour, the Group has established a wide range of restaurants ‘Emily’s’, ‘Clock Tower Café’, ‘The Stray Dog – Ale House & Stübli’ and ‘Landour Bakehouse’ where all the products are made from recipes that are older than a century from the Landour community cookbook and a full-service spa called ‘The Little Salon & Spa Shed’.
