Take a Look at the Larger-than-life Residence of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani : Antilia
When we talk about the chairman of Reliance Industries, everything has to be grand, and so is Ambani’s residence Antilia. The 27 storey building is located at Altamount Road, South Mumbai, and is designed in consultation with American Architecture firm Perkins and Will.
Antilia is estimated to be around $2.2 Billion in worth (approx. 4500 crores in Indian Rupees), which makes it the second-most expensive house in the world after UK’s Buckingham Palace.
There’s almost nothing that you will not find in this magnificent villa. Antilia has 3 swimming pools, mini theatres, a ballroom, a spa, a massive temple and an ice room to beat the heat of Mumbai. The residence also has an in-house elevator with beautiful mirror work details (It literally makes an Insta-worthy background).
Did you know how many cars the richest man of India owns? Well, he owns 168 cars! And Antilia has 6 parking floors to accommodate the massive collections of cars owned by the Ambanis. The villa also has an in-house car service station on the 7th floor!
The main attraction of Antilia has to be the ice room located on the 13th floor of the building. The room also has snow guns for creating the effect of snowfall. Well, Ambani’s house has all the vacation vibes.
Apart from the lavish interiors, Antilia also has three helipads (In case you want to escape the Mumbai traffic). The villa is built to withstand even an earthquake of 8 Richter scale. No wonder that Antilia took two years to get ready. The construction started in 2008 and was completed by 2010.
You must be wondering how many people maintain this grand villa, well the number is 600. A strong 600 member staff keeps Antilia in order.
Mukesh Ambani’s daughter, Isha Ambani, and Anand Piramal’s wedding venue was Antilia.
Why the name Antilia?
Antilia is named after the fictitious island Antillia, reputed to lie in the Atlantic ocean, off the coast of Portugal and Spain during the 15th- century age of exploration.
