GIFT City welcomes its first international hotel with Grand Mercure Gandhinagar GIFT City. Keeping the state’s rich cultural, historical, culinary and geographical dimensions a topmost priority, the hotel incorporates local touch points to all its premium services, food, accommodation and healthy lifestyle options.
Through storytelling, the property brings the distinctive culture and traditions of Gujarat to life, with local interpretation of the four brand signatures: Sense of Welcome, Sense of Food and Beverage, Sense of Wellness and Sense of Culture and Discovery. Inspired by the rich culinary legacy of Gujarat, the hotel has a specialty restaurant Samaroh, which offers local quintessential Gujarati delicacies. Guests are welcomed with a Gujarati Thali which truly captures the flavours of the state and is a treat to reckon with.
