SWISSÔTELHotels & Resorts has signed a management contract for a flagship project in India: Swissôtel Grand Mumbai.
Located in the Andheri Kurla business district in north Mumbai, the five-star business hotel will offer 300 guest rooms, executive rooms and suites when it opens in 2014.
The hotel’s conference and banqueting facilities will occupy a total area of around 1600m², including the main ballroom measuring 500m2. The hotel will also have a Pürovel Spa & Sport centre.
“This exciting project at the heart of Mumbai’s commercial centre will drive forward our expansion in the highly promising Indian market,” said Meinhard Huck, president, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts.
“A robust domestic tourism industry coupled with the increasing global nature of Indian businesses is boosting business travel and providing a very healthy platform for the growth of the hospitality industry.”
Swissôtel opened its first hotel in India – Swissôtel Kolkata – in July 2010. Another Swissôtel is under development in Bangalore.
