Hyderabad is known as the city of gems and jewels, there are endless lanes of jewelry bazaar and gem stores. Hyderabad, which was ruled over by several family dynasties, is not new to legends of treasures.
When Skidmore, Owings and Merill LLP (SOM) were approached to design the hotel, they decided to keep the gems and jewel theme for the hotel. The white skin of the hotel representing fabrics with tears and perforations which is almost like a embroidery of gems on the fabric. The perforations allow light to pass through and looks like blue sapphires.
