Pooja Shah-Mulani is a true great example of being able to successfully merge ability and desire, whilst grasping every opportunity and challenge that presents itself in creating authentic and memorable destinations. Her idea of the key to success is being able to build connections with the client, operator, and ultimately the end user’s needs. With a unique warmth and openness, she can dissect the aspirations and needs of others that becomes her primary source of inspiration.
With Indian heritage, Shah-Mulani’s journey has taken her through Africa, UK, Italy, and the Middle East. These cultural connections have been instrumental in weaving together a unique philosophy that is seen in her designs throughout the region as well as internationally.
Over the past decade at LW, she has developed her design talent and success with her natural leadership qualities that allow her to now lead the way for LW in the future. Shah-Mulani has designed and led outstanding, award-winning projects such as Bull & Bear Restaurant and St. Trop Bar at Waldorf Astoria DIFC, Seventy Seventy at Park Hyatt – Dubai Creek, and Zeste Café* at Holiday Inn Festival City. Recently completed projects include the much-anticipated Dubai Edition, the Hyatt Regency in Cape Town, and the vibrant Indego by Vineet at the Grosvenor House in Dubai.
