Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Hong Kong-headquartered luxury hotel group opens its second hotel in the country with the launch of the Shangri-La Hotel Bengaluru.
Located in the heart of the central business district on Palace Road, it is the largest hotel in the city with a room inventory of 397 keys and the Group’s second hotel in the country, 10 years after the launch of its first hotel in New Delhi.
Developed at an investment of Rs 600 crore excluding land cost by Adarsh Developers and managed by the Shangri-La Group, the hotel will introduce many firsts to its guests and residents of Bengaluru.
The company said the hotel would be a destination for business and pleasure, offering a "dynamic" array of restaurants, bars and meeting spaces.
“We will be opening with 220 guest rooms to begin with and open the rest in 30 days. Three of our eight restaurants will be open — b Café where, b stands for Bengaluru, is our all-day dining restaurant offering global cuisine across seven live theatre-style cooking stations; the Lobby Lounge which will serve snacks, beverages, breakfast/high tea items and our signature restaurant, the Shang Palace that will serve food from different regions of China,” Jens Corder, General Manager, Shangri-La Hotel Bengaluru said.
Corder expects F&B to contribute to 67 per cent of the hotel’s revenue as the hotel offers 12,500 sq ft of banqueting space.
“Although the city is largely a market for business travellers, we want to promote the city as a destination in itself with packages such as, Celebrate Bengaluru, Breakfast in b Café, Epicurean, to name a few,” said Corder.
The Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts own over 90 hotels worldwide with a room inventory of over 38,000 rooms.
