Ritz-Carlton launch in India

July 26, 2013 Headline News, Hotel News No Comments Email Email

India’s first Ritz Carlton will launch on 30 September with The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore. The luxury hotel spread over 3 acres in Bangalore’s up-market commercial hub on Residency Road is owned and developed by Nitesh Estates. 

The hotel will have 277 rooms measuring 48 to 102 sqm. The Ritz-Carlton Club, a private floor accessible only by elevator key, offers complimentary 24-hour Food and Beverage service and a dedicated concierge. Wireless internet access is available in all rooms and public spaces of this non-smoking hotel.

Adil J Bajirao, Vice President, Gilpin Tours & Travel Management, told eGTM: “It’s wonderful to know that Ritz-Carlton will make its presence in India. Bengaluru is more of a short haul business destination rather than a long-stay luxury destination like the golden triangle. There are two strong markets –domestic and inbound. Many domestic elite families are also known to stay at luxury hotels while holidaying and attending family functions within India.”

A choice of 7 food and beverage venues include The Market, a contemporary all day dining restaurant with three interactive show kitchens serving coastal , Asian, Western and Indian cuisine,  The Lantern,  a 3 level Chinese restaurant and bar and Bang, the rooftop bar with  open air club seating, private VIP lounges and celebrity DJ performances. Riwaz, Indian specialty restaurant features North West Frontier cuisine at its two private dining rooms and the city’s first whisky and wine tasting tables.

1,700 square meters of flexible meeting space includes a pillar-less ballroom for 1000 people. ESPA spa at the hotel is spread on 1394 sqm. The room tariffs will begin from US$ 226 (Rs13, 500) to US$ 268(Rs 16,000) per night.

Bajirao said: “India is known for its high service standards. If priced appropriately, (as Indian luxury hotels are known to be overpriced compared to other luxury hotels in Asia like Bali), current lower value of Indian Rupee will attract international visitors to enjoy luxury at lower rates in India.”

The hotel has appointed Hugo Montanari as Director of Operations. Montanari earlier worked at The Plaza Hotel, New York.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company is an independently operated division of Marriott International. The management company has 87 hotels worldwide.
