We are revamping the entire space and introducing new water sports like wind surfing, water skiing, parasailing and all kind of water sports from all over the world. I want H2O to be on the international map of water sports and promote tourism in a big way."
Sunil's water sports resort has 80 fishermen working with it as certified lifeguards. "Last year, was a bit of a setback when the restaurant closed down but people who indulge in water sports need to eat too so I am getting Salt Water Grill to open too. I am working with the government to apply for permissions.
It's a new chapter today. It's a project that's close to my heart. Mumbai has such a big coastline -- with proper planning, we can make it the numero uno destination for water sports. I love water sports and I want people from all the world coming in to enjoy what India has to offer in water sports."
What had happened?
Last year Sunil's sea-view restaurant Saltwater Grill at Girgaum had been shut down because of the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) served them a termination notice, following a complaint lodged by Amit Maru, a resident of Tulsiwadi at Mahalaxmi, for violations of the Environment Protection Act, 1986, and the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984.
