The Ritz-Carlton Hotel has opened the doors of its first luxury hotel in India. Located on Residency Road in the heart of downtown Bangalore, the hotel is part of a destination renowned for its world-class shopping, dining and entertainment.
Bangalore is India’s third largest city and best known as the Silicon Valley of India, featuring areas like Electronic City, though vast expanses of lush greenery have also earned it the name of The Garden City. The 277 room city center Ritz-Carlton hotel embraces tradition with the Jaali (lattice screen) design from the Mughal era and many architectural and interior design features, including pointed archways and ample white marble reminiscent of the Taj Mahal.
Jaali screens offer a sense of privacy while allowing light to flow through them. An impressive marble staircase is the center piece of the hotel interior and decorative paintings and sculptures, coupled with intricate Jaali patterns, are all carefully blended to form an essential part of the hotel’s character. With 1,280 pieces of contemporary art from prominent artists, The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore is home to the largest collection inside a hotel.
The Lantern, designed by Japanese interior designers, Super Potato, is Bangalore’s stunning three-level restaurant, shaped like a glass Lantern. Authentic Chinese dim sum and cuisine from different provinces of China will be served. The Market all-day dining room, also created by Super Potato, is Bangalore’s only culinary theatre which also includes a unique wine room and private dining spaces for guests. And the signature fine dining restaurant Riwaz, designed by Peter Silling, literally translates tradition by serving authentic dishes from India’s North West Frontier in a contemporary space.
An urban resort oasis can be found on Level 5. The sanctuary includes The Ritz-Carlton Spa by ESPA, an experience with native Ayurvedic and internationally-acclaimed treatments. The holistic wellness enclave features an expansive state-of-the-art fitness facility with a fully-equipped Technogym, and an outdoor swimming pool with poolside lounge and bar surrounded by lush foliage. Guests can relax in private cabanas with inviting daybeds and cocoons that offer privacy and comfort.
