India’s First Ritz-Carlton Designed by WATG

November 5, 2013 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

Another urban five-star hotel, designed by WATG, has opened its doors. Luxury hotel operator The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. has chosen Bangalore as its first location in India for many reasons.

Aerial RenderingBangalore is a significant and dynamic economic and cultural hub and the second-fastest growing major metropolis in India, boasting the highest concentration of IT companies in the country, alongside a mix of gardens, museums, temples, and palaces. With its pleasant year-round climate and growing economic base, the operator believes that Bangalore is a strategic destination to launch India’s first Ritz-Carlton hotel. Luxury property developer Nitesh Estates owns the hotel.

The luxury hotel has 281 rooms, including one Presidential Suite and 26 executive suites. Guests can enjoy three restaurants; an ultra luxury spa and a techno gym-equipped fitness center, a club lounge and an extravagant roof top terrace with panoramic views, and a spectacular open-air hotel pool deck on top of the building. Located on an L-shaped plot in the heart of the central business district, the 16-storey property also features a helicopter-landing pad on the rooftop.

“The Ritz-Carlton was a remarkable design opportunity to conceive a modern luxurious hotel located in an urban city neighborhood that exemplifies both the extraordinary past and promising future of Bangalore,” said Bradford McNamee, Senior Vice President at WATG.

Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore, may be the first of its brand in India, but not the first Ritz-Carlton designed by WATG. WATG has designed over 60 Ritz-Carlton hotels in 25 countries, and has recently been involved in Ritz-Carlton projects in Mexico, Indonesia, Panama, Morocco, Maldives, US Virgin Islands, and Taiwan.
