Vastu for Restaurants
All ground rules of Vastu Shastra for a residential plot equally
applicable to the hospitality Industry. People come for short while
they stay in the hotel, eat in the restaurants. Sometimes they do
business work. Here we have few tips which can be applied while
designing the hotels and restaurants
The plot should be of regular shape southwest to southeast
corner at 90 degrees preferably from road.
More space should keep open towards north and east as compared
to south and west.
- Slope should be towards northeast.
Northeast zone should be used for the construction of water
boring, well, underground water reservoir or swimming pool etc.
Lawns (avoiding tall trees) with flowering plants and fountains
etc. can be organized in north and east open space.
If the building is centrally air conditioned the central A/C
plant should be located in the south east corner of the building.
Individual room air conditioners can be fixed on the south or
west wall towards southeast, southwest and northwest corners.
Northeast corner should be avoided for this purpose.
In the hotels and restaurant services, the kitchen requires
a large space, good light and ventilation. Preferably, the kitchen
should be at ground floor in southeast zone. All electrical
appliances like ovens, grinders and mixers used in kitchen could
be placed in southeast corner of the kitchen. Storeroom location
could be in west or south of the kitchen.
Boilers, diesel generators, transformers, capacitors, control
panels etc. should be placed in southeast zone.
- Elevators should be placed in south zone.
- Entrance gate to the hotel could be located in
· North facing between mid north and northeast corner
· East facing between mid east to northeast corner
· West facing between mid west to northwest corner
· South facing between mid south to south east corner.
Normally south facing main gate is not considered as auspicious
Toilets could be placed in southwest, northwest and in unavoidable
circumstances in southeast. Northeast corner for toilet is strictly
prohibited. Mirrors and washbasin should be installed to east
or north side of walls.
