Swissotel Enters India With Kolkata Hotel

Zurich-headquartered hospitality operator Swissotel Hotels & Resorts has entered India’s fast-growing market with the opening of its first property in the country. The 147-room Swissotel Kolkata is part of a new urban mixed-use development and is strategically located on the banks of the River Hooghly minutes from Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport.


Each of the accomodation options at the hotel, ranging from the 32-square meter Classic rooms to the 65-square meter Jacuzzi Suite are stylishly designed and generously proportioned. Standard amenities include King-sized or twin beds, ensuite bathrooms (with selected suites having an outdoor jacuzzi), flat screen satellite televisions, high-speed internet access, IP telephone, workdesk, in-room safe, minibar and coffee-/tea-making facilities. Guests of the Swiss Executive rooms and suites will also enjoy complimentary access to the exclusive Executive Club where they can relax and work in comfort.


4 restaurants and bars provide an array of on-property dining to guests. The all-day dining Cafe Swiss offers international and regional favorites in a relaxed, contemporary surrounding with indoor and outdoor seating, while lovers of Indian cuisine can find it at the Specialty Indian Restaurant where classic Bengali cuisine meets the fusion of modern and traditional cooking methods. After meals, guests can retreat to the Bar for a nightcap selected from the extensive menu of cocktails, wines and spirits. Alternatively, the Rooftop Lounge and Bar’s modern outdoor surroundings are ideal for unwinding after a busy day.


Business travellers and meeting planners will find over 1,561 square meters of convention space, including a 340-square meter Grand Ballroom that can be divided into 3 separate spaces. Each venue is equipped with the latest audio-visual technology and supported by a full-service Business Center. For recreation, the Swissotel Kolkata offers an outdoor swimming pool and state-of-the-art fitness center with strength and cardiovascular training equipment from Technogym.


Swissotel Hotels & Resorts currently operate 28 properties in gateway cities around the world, with new hotels under development in Dresden, Kiev and Mecca. Within Asia, the chain has a presence in Bangkok, Beijing, Foshan, Kunshan, Osaka, Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney in addition to Kolkata.
