The Hospitality industry relies on quality service and facilities for the repeat business. If hotel has a vastu design then guest will feel comfortable, relaxed and welcomed immediately.Creative design with vastu norms has much to offer the hospitality industry. Hotel, restaurants and cafes in order to encourage more people to visit them should incorporate precious vastu design in their layout.When vastu norms are properly implemented at Hotel Restaurant or cafe. it helps to create an environment that enhances the guests experience. The result is a satisfied guest who will return over and over for repeat order/stay.The key placement to consider in a hotel & Restaurant vastu arrangement are the careful positioning of the entrances, main counters , table arrangements and even more importantly the kitchen.
Entrance:- Entrance to the hotel should be welcoming and easy to find and access. It is a gateway to the wealth and success. Entrance in order to make it auspicious, it should be in the positive direction marked by an experienced vastu expert. Any obstacles in front of the main entrance could result difficulty in getting new as well as repeat customers. When a hotel driveway warmly welcomes you with beautiful plants & flowers, an exotic water fountain and a smiling-greeting doorman, you are immediately satisfied even before you step into the lobby area.
Seating arrangement:- Tables and chairs should be in a harmonious arrangement preferably in alignment with magnetic axis. The customers should be facing east or west while taking a food or drink at the restaurant. Square or rectangular table with little round corner is preferred to avoid conflcit and discomfort at the site.
Kitchen:- Harmony and efficiency in the kitchen is the key to any hotel or restaurant's success. As the kitchen uses most two important element of the vastu i.e. fire & water, it is an area prone to conflict. For the success of any hotel or restaurant it is advisable to put kitchen in the fire corner of the site. Taste of the food cooked in the south east corner is much better pulling much more customers with frequent visits. There are lesser number of the complaints about the food quality and service, if kitchen is made at fire corner.
Colours:- Use warm colours like orange, yellow, cream & brown in the interior as well as menu design. These colours are moer conductive to the nourishing and enjoyable experience of eating. Too much use of cool shades like grey and green may gradually lower the customer turonver.
