LUXURY hotel group, ITC Hotels, is expanding its portfolio with a new golf resort and spa to be introduced this October.
The ITC Grand Bharat is set in the Aravalli Hills in Manesar, a 40-minute drive from Delhi.
Occupying 121ha, the resort offers 100 suites with either an al fresco terrace or private plunge pool, and four Presidential Villas with private pools and round-the-clock butler service.
The highlight of the resort is its Jack Nicklaus-designed, 27-hole golf course with three specialised courses, a golf club and a bar.
Another signature of ITC Grand Bharat is the Kaya Kalp – The Royal Spa. Built with nine treatment rooms, the spa also features yoga regimes from the Bihar School of Yoga, a fitness centre with personal trainers, and naturopathic cuisine – a special diet planned by Ayurveda practitioners and certified doctors.
There will be four dining outlets within the resort namely the all-day dining Aravalli Pavilion, the India Room serving European cuisine, The Peacock Bar & Cigar Divan and Camp Bharat, a poolside bar and lounge. Guests can also try their hand at cooking at ITC Hotels’ first culinary school.
The resort simultaneously caters to guests with a range of activities for adventure and nature lovers, from nature trails and bird watching, to canoeing, paragliding, swimming, cycling or watching a live performance at the open-air amphitheatre.
Besides its extensive facilities, ITC Grand Bharat promotes sustainable tourism, which can be seen through the water conservation facilities, on-site recycling plants and energy efficient lighting on hotel premises.
Meanwhile, ITC Hotels is preparing to open ITC Vilasa, the hotel group’s first beach resort and spa situated 25km from Chennai overlooking the Bay of Bengal, by mid-2015.
A further four hotels are scheduled to open by 2018, as is the ITC Hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
The company currently has a portfolio of 10 business-focused hotels in top Indian cities.
