Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, the five-star Zurich-based hospitality chain, has opened its first Indian hotel in Bangalore.

Situated close to Bangalore's International airport and its business districts, the hotel is the only five-star international hotel in India that offers guests a unique 24-hour rate stay.

Targeted at corporate travelers, it means you have the room for 24 hours from the time of check-in. Reason being, most flights from Bangalore arrive/depart either early morning or early evening. So if you check in at 2 a.m. you can keep the room till 2 a.m. the next day.

With 182 rooms, eight executive suites, and one presidential suite, guests get complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi in all rooms and public areas -- also a first for Bangalore. 

"We are convinced that the hotel’s facilities, in combination with our personalized service delivery and the Swiss approach to quality, will appeal to domestic and international travelers alike," said Jean Gabriel Pérès, CEO Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

Facilities highlights:

  • Infinity pool and Ayurveda-inspired spa with decor based on Hindu temples. 
  • A grand ballroom with a separate entrance.
  • A rooftop restaurant and lounge called Perfect Sky, along with an 1920s art deco Obsidian bar and Italian restaurant called Mezzaluna.

The hotel chain has recently announced a second property in the country, the Mövenpick Dharamshala Resort & Spa, an exclusive 110-room resort in Kangra Valley due to open in 2013.

Other expansion plans for India include: Jaipur, Udaipur, Goa, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Gurgaon, Agra and Cochin.

The Bangalore hotel is running an opening offer tariff of Rs 7,500 (plus taxes) for superior rooms, with complimentary buffet breakfast, one-way airport transfer plus a complimentary car for any journey up to 10 kilometers from the hotel.
