Four Seasons becomes latest group to enter Bengaluru hotel market

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has signed a deal with Indian property company Embassy Group to open a new luxury hotel and private residences in Bengaluru, one of India's fastest growing cities.

Located within Embassy ONE, a mixed-use development featuring commercial office space and premium retail outlets, the hotel is set to open later this year.

The 230-room Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru at Embassy ONE has been designed by HKS Architects and Studio u+a, with Yabu Pushelburg providing the interior designs.

Facilities include a large Four Seasons spa, a health club and a wide range of restaurants.

The spa’s USP will be a “tranquil outdoor oasis”, designed by landscape architects P Landscape, featuring an outdoor swimming pool and waterfall, a butterfly garden and ribbon lawn, secluded from the surrounding city.

Four Seasons has become the latest international hotel operator to enter the booming Bengaluru market.

Last month, Hilton Hotels announced it will take its ‘smart luxury’ brand Conrad to the city.

Bengaluru is often referred to as “India's Silicon Valley”, reflecting its status as a hub for information technology companies in India.

"Bengaluru is a very exciting city, in part through the tremendous progress of industry, technology, research and education," said J Allen Smith, president and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

"It's attractive to business and leisure travellers, and with a growing population of more than ten million, is also a significant residential market.

"India is an incredibly important market for us at Four Seasons, and we have been looking for the right opportunity to expand our presence here.

“This project is the perfect opportunity to do so, in an ideal location and with our visionary partners at Embassy Group, who are deeply involved and committed to the evolution of this city."

The property will be the second Four Seasons hotel in India, following the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai in 2008.
