Vastu for Hotels, Restaurants, and Resorts
Now a day’s hotel business is growing at a very fast speed. Hotel, Restaurant, and resorts have become an important part of modern life style. Hotels, resorts and restaurants have become important centre. 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 hotel or restaurant. The land should be square or rectangular. An extended lshan Kona gives good results.
A pond, lake, swimming pool or flowing water river in the north – east direction of hotel or resort enhances the prosperity of business. Underground water resource or boring should be kept in North direction as it helps to get popularity. One will never face lack of money and gets financial stability. A fountain which has music and light, should be in North East direction. It helps in maintaining positive energy in the premises. People-get attracted towards the hotel. Swimming pool should never be in the centre of the land or in South West direction. Any swimming pool or water body in the centre part of the land brings poverty and ruin.
Maximum construction work should be done in 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 must. The main entrance door is best if kept in North, lshan Kona East lshan Kona or East side.
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 sthan can also be used for 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, lshan, or north and centre part 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 South-West direction, it causes enmity and hostility in relations. Kitchen in 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 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 West direction. But if there is shortage of place, the kitchen can be made in 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 dining table should be in even numbers. Glasses of water should be kept in North East side, wash basin should also be placed in North East side. The doors of the dining hall should be painted in yellow colour (colour of Jupiter), because Lord Jupiter has the domain on 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.
