Ritz-Carlton to operate hotel and apartments in Mumbai's Worli Development

by Helen Andrews | 12 May 2014

Mumbai-based company Oberoi Realty announced The Ritz-Carlton Hotel company as its hospitality partner for the 2.1 millionsq ft (0.2 millionsq m) mixed-use Worli Development in Worli District on 8 May.

The two high-rise towers are being developed by Oasis Realty – a joint venture between Oberoi and Sahana Group. The project will include a 140-apartment tower and a mixed-use tower comprising commercial office space and the 280-key Ritz-Carlton hotel – which will feature an ocean-view bar, spa and banquet spaces.

The partnership between Oberoi Realty and Sahana Group is 50-50 for the hotel and 30-70 for the residences.

“The one thing that is common in any high-end luxury hotel is that the management is shattered, like the concierge is being run by somebody, the spa is looked after by another party and so on,” chairman and managing director of Oberoi Realty Ltd, Vikas Oberoi told HospitalityBiz.

“There is nobody who is binding these services together. Whereas Ritz-Carlton manages all of these strands in harmony. We had many contenders for this project but The Ritz-Carlton proved to be an iconic deal for the public segment,” Oberoi said.

Ritz-Carlton will manage the hotel and apartments in the adjacent tower – both expected to open late 2016 – for a period of 20 years.

The Ritz-Carlton, Mumbai is the second Ritz-Carlton property in India after the opening of the Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore last year.

The project is being constructed by Samsung C&T Corporation and it is designed by US-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. The interior design is being handled by New York’s Tony Chi and Associates.
