OT: Which is your favourite hotel in the world?
Tannishtha Chatterjee: Actually, there are two — Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa (from AUD 166, marriott.com.au) in Gold Coast, Australia, and the Emirates Palace (from AED 1,250, kempinski.com) in Abu Dhabi.
OT: When did you last visit?
Tannishtha Chatterjee: I visited Surfers Paradise for the first time in November 2010 and again in 2011 for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. I visited Emirates Palace in 2009 for the Abu Dhabi film festival.
OT: What makes them special?
Tannishtha Chatterjee: I have visited amazing hotels like the Ritz-Carlton in Berlin, Alila Cha-Am in Thailand, Four Seasons in Doha, Los Angeles and New York, some amazing boutique hotels in England and Italy... but I picked these two for the personal memories.
OT: Do tell us more!
Tannishtha Chatterjee: I had a great time swimming with the dolphins in Gold Coast in 2010. It was a birthday gift. My rooms had bountiful views. I had a presidential suite, as a jury member at the Awards. My bedroom faced the canals. The living-room balcony had an amazing sea view. My Jacuzzi looked to the mountains.
OT: What about the Emirates Palace?
Tannishtha Chatterjee: It is the opposite of modern minimal décor, which was spectacular for a change. It has artificial beaches, kind of weird. My private butler was hot — felt like I was on the sets of Sex and the City 2 [laughs].
OT: Will you visit again soon?
Tannishtha Chatterjee: Would love to, though I don’t know when! Wherever work takes me is where I go.
