Hotels, vaastu guidance
Hotels and Restaurants are built for the public as a business
centre where people come and stay temporarily for some time and
after having rest, meals, etc. proceed on for their destination.
Thus the benefits of hotel and restaurant are two folds - to the
customers restaurants for good and delicious food, and for decent
comfortable stay as 'paying guest'. The better this arrangement,
the more is the popularity and fame of the hotel or restaurant in
the country and outside. It is possible only when the
construction of hotels and restaurants is done according to the
principles of Vaastu Shastra. Surely then these will be
beneficial and profitable to the customers (Travelers) and the
The following important facts must be kept in mind while
establishing and running a hotel/restaurant business so as to
make it progressive and profitable.
(1) The building should be constructed on a plot having
rectangular, square, circular, Bhadrasanakar, quadrangular,
hexagonal, octagonal, singhmukhakar shape. This gives all round
(2) If there are roads on all the four sides or on the north
and east, it is auspicious and beneficial.
(3) Slope of the land should be towards the north-east.
(4) Building should be constructed in such a way that the
north and east portion remains mostly open.
(5) Furnace, burner (Chulha), electric transformer, gas room
and kitchen should be kept in the south-east portion.
(6) Rooms for the stay of travelers (Customers) should be
constructed in the south-west.
(7) Dining hall and restaurant in the west in always

etc. should be constructed in the north-east where only these are
auspicious; overhead water tank should always be in the south
(9) Large open ground, lawn, and space for organising
conferences etc. in open should be maintained.

(13) Store for raw materials required for the hotel and
cloak-room (for the bag and baggages of the customers) should be
there in the north.
(14) Main door should be singhmukhi and it should be built in
proper according to Vaastu-rules by dividing the length of the
side in nine parts.
(15) Permanent store should be kept in south-west so that this
corner is always heavy.
After the site is selected, taking into consideration,levels,
roads and angles etc., one has to plan the open spaces for lawns
and car parking. While cellar could be designed for car parking,
for kitchen stores and for servant stay etc., the ground floor
could be used for reception,and restaurant. As the area required
for kitchen has to be sufficiently big, with
light and ventilation, it is better that kitchen is planned on
ground floor earmarking complete south-east portion for ovens,
grinders and vegetable cutting etc.
On first floor they could plan conference halls, and more
restaurant area if necessary and the upper floors could be used
for rooms. Care has to be taken that the balconies are provided
in east or north. The toilets should be avoided in
north-east side of the rooms. Store rooms with huge stocks should
be in south or west, or south-west.
Air-conditioning Plant: A.C. equipment is to be kept in
south-east of the complex and there from it is to be operated. It
should never be installed in north-east under any
Electrical Generators and Transformers: These are to be
installed in south-east direction.
Wash Basins: It is not advisable to keep wash basins in the
centre of halls even for convenience sake. Wash basins are to be
arranged in north or east or north-east of halls.
Main Entrances of Restaurants: It is better to have main
entrance in east or north or north-east directions. If it is to
be kept in west direction, it should be towards north-west but
not in south- west under any circumstances. If it is forced to
keep main entrance in south, it advisable to keep it in
south-east rather than south -west.
Mezzanine Floor: Mezzanine floor in any hall have to be
provided along west or south walls.

south-west with elevated platforms but if it is provided in
