Now a day’s hotel business is growing at a very fast speed. Hotel, Restaurant, and resorts have become an important part of the modern lifestyle. Hotels, resorts, and restaurants have become an important center. For the arrangement of auspicious and social ceremonies like marriage, private parties, and domestic festivals, so the construction of all these buildings should be done according to the principles of Vastu.
The first important thing is to select the right land for hotels or restaurants. The land should be square or rectangular. An extended Olshan Kona gives good results.
A pond, lake, swimming pool or flowing water river in the northeast direction of a hotel or resort enhances the prosperity of business. Underground water resources or boring should be kept in North direction as it helps to get popularity. One will never face a lack of money and gets financial stability. A fountain that has music and light, should be in North-East direction. It helps in maintaining positive energy in the premises. People get attracted to the hotel. The swimming pool should never be in the center of the land or in a southwest direction. Any swimming pool or water body in the center part of the land brings poverty and ruin.
Maximum construction work should be done in the South-West part of the Hotel or Resort. North and East parts should be kept open and free. South, West wall should be high, strong, and heavy. A boundary wall around the hotel is a must. The main entrance door is best if kept in North, lshan Kona East Olshan Kona or Eastside.
A kitchen is a compulsory place in any Restaurant, hotel, and Resort. It should be made in Agneya Kona. If it is not possible, Vayavya than can also be used for the kitchen, but in this case cooking platform or cooking gas stove should be in south-East direction. Otherwise, there will always be a fear of fire, accident or more expenditure. The kitchen should never be constructed in Nairatya, Asian, or north and central parts of the land. The owner of the hotel may face bankruptcy and wastage of food items if the kitchen is in North-East direction. If it is in the South-West direction, it causes enmity and hostility in relations. The kitchen in the North direction is not good for financial growth. The cooking range should be in East and South of the kitchen and while cooking food the cook should face East direction.
The best location for a hotel or dining hall in the hotel is west direction. The second-best place is East direction. If the kitchen is in South-East direction, the dining hall should be made in East or South directions. If the kitchen is in North West, the dining hall should be in the West direction. But if there is a shortage of place, the kitchen can be made in the North direction. The dining table should be either rectangular or square-shaped. The length of the table should not be more than the two times width in the dining hall. For example, if the width is 4 feet, the length can be maximum 8 feet but not more than that. The measurement of the table should not be uneven, as like (width 3 feet, length 7 feet) as it generates hostility among the users. The number of chairs, placed with the dining table should be in even numbers. Glasses of water should be kept in the North East side, washbasin should also be placed in the North Eastside. The doors of the dining hall should be painted in yellow colour (colour of Jupiter) because Lord Jupiter has the domain on the dining room. The walls of the dining room should be either light yellow, cream, orange as these colours are auspicious. Dining table should not be kept right under the beam as it enhances the tension while eating.
The Hospitality industry relies on quality service and facilities for the repeat business. If a hotel has a Vastu design then the 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 guest’s 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.
The entrance to the hotel should be welcoming and easy to find and access. It is a gateway to 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 in 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 the magnetic axis. The customers should be facing east or west while taking a portion of food or drink at the restaurant. Square or rectangular table with little round corner is preferred to avoid conflict and discomfort at the site.
Harmony and efficiency in the kitchen is the key to any hotel or restaurant’s success. As the kitchen uses the most two important elements 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 the kitchen in the fire corner of the site. The taste of the food cooked in the southeast corner is much better pulling many more customers with frequent visits. There are a lesser number of complaints about the food quality and service if the kitchen is made at the fire corner.
Use warm colors like orange, yellow, cream & brown in the interior as well as menu design. These colors are more conducive to the nourishing and enjoyable experience of eating. Too much use of cool shades like grey and green may gradually lower customer turnover.
In any size of the plot, Vastu can be applied with the true Vastu layout.
