INTERCONTINENTAL Hotels Group (IHG) has signed a management agreement with Adyar Gate Hotels for the InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort, which will launch later this year.
Located along the picturesque beachfront on East Coast Road in the south of Chennai, the 106-key luxury resort is just 30km from Chennai International Airport.
It will offer three F&B outlets, including an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant and bar, as well as a spa, health club, outdoor pool and banquet facility for large events.
The new hotel becomes the second InterContinental hotel in India after InterContinental Mumbai Marine Drive and the fourth in the IHG pipeline for Chennai, which also includes the recently announced Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park.
Shantha de Silva, head of south west Asia, IHG, commented: “With its growing popularity as a tourism destination, the Tamil Nadu capital is a key growth city for us and, with its proximity to both the business district and tourist attractions such as the UNESCO world heritage site at Mahabalipuram, the location of the new InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort is second to none.”
