2nd Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to open in Bangalore
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, a luxury hospitality company, and property developer Embassy Group will open a new Four Seasons hotel and private residences later this year in Bengaluru. Located within Embassy ONE, a new mixed-use development featuring commercial office space and premium retail outlets, the new hotel and residences will debut as Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Bengaluru at Embassy ONE in summer 2018.
The Embassy ONE development is located in northern Bengaluru, which is a short drive to Kempegowda International Airport, business districts, Bengaluru Palace and Cubbon Park, offering business and leisure travellers as well as residents of Four Seasons the best that the city has to offer.
The hotel will be led by General Manager, Fredrik Blomqvist, a Four Seasons veteran of more than 10 years, who most recently served as the General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai. “We are excited to introduce a new luxury experience at Embassy ONE that will soon be a hub of activity. Whether browsing the shops, dining at one of the restaurants, staying with us at the Hotel, or living with us as a private residence owner, there will be something for everyone,” said Jitu Virwani, CMD, Embassy Group. “Through our partnership with Four Seasons, guests and residents can expect the highest levels of personalised service that the brand is known to deliver around the world, and is unmatched in Bengaluru, helping to distinguish Embassy ONE as offering the best accommodation and living experience in the city.”
“Bengaluru is a very exciting city, in part through the tremendous progress of industry, technology, research and education, with just as much to offer in the way of culture and nightlife,” noted J. Allen Smith, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “It’s attractive to business and leisure travellers, and with a growing population of more than 10 million, is also a significant residential market.”
Continues Smith, “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 Embassy ONE development consists of three new buildings, with the Hotel and Private Residences located in the North and South Towers, and the third building housing the office and retail space. The 230-room Hotel, designed by HKS Architects and Studio u+a, with interiors by Yabu Pushelburg, will be located in the South Tower of the development, with the 105 private residences occupying the upper floors of the South Tower as well as all 30 floors of the North Tower.
The Hotel will also be host to three expansive dining outlets, in total seating more than 600 people at a 24-hour restaurant, a lobby lounge and bar, and an Asian brasserie and bar designed by LW Design Group. Guests and residents alike can enjoy a spa and salon, fitness centre, and meeting and event spaces. Landscape architects P Landscape (PLA) will create an outdoor oasis, featuring a pool and waterfall, butterfly garden and ribbon lawn, conveniently located between the North and South Towers, yet quietly secluded from the surrounding city.
The property will be the second Four Seasons hotel in India, complementing Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai.
