THE Ritz-Carlton has partnered with Oberoi Realty to open an iconic property in Worli, a thriving business district in central Mumbai in 1Q2017.
Made of steel and glass, the 238-key hotel will have a residential complex built alongside it, also to be managed by the luxury hotel brand. It will cost approximately Rs7.5 billion (US$126.4 million) to build.
The hotel will have F&B offerings such as an ocean-view bar and two specialty and fine-dining restaurants, a spa, and 1,200m2 of banquet and meeting spaces for high-profile events and society weddings for which Mumbai is renowned.
Paul Foskey, executive vice president, hotel development – Asia-Pacific of Marriott International, said in a press statement: “This hotel is part of Marriott’s rapid expansion, which will entail the opening of at least one hotel a month for the next few years across the globe.”
Mitesh Dani, managing director, Mumbai-based Parul Tours, said: “The introduction of a luxury brand like The Ritz-Carlton will add value to the high-end hospitality business in Mumbai and attract more business travellers to the city.
“The exclusive F&B offerings associated with the brand will augment the MICE segment too.”
