The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. has signed an agreement with a consortium led by Oberoi Realty and Sahana Group to open the first Ritz-Carlton in Mumbai, the entertainment, commercial and financial capital of India, and the second in the country following the recent opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore in Karnataka.
The 238-room Ritz-Carlton will be in Worli, in central Mumbai, a new business district with easy access to the international airport.
The newly built structure is expected to open early 2017.
The Ritz-Carlton, Mumbai will form part of a mixed used development in an iconic high-rise tower with luxury residential spaces. A second tower has been designated for luxury residential condominiums managed by The Ritz-Carlton.
“We have been searching for the perfect location for a premier hotel in Mumbai for several years,” said Herve Humler, president and chief operating officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. “This site offers everything hotel guests could want—a prime business location, stylish and contemporary design in this historically rich and vibrant city.”
Vikas Oberoi, Chairman and Managing Director of Oberoi Realty said: “Mumbai is one of the great gateways of the world and by partnering with The Ritz-Carlton, we continue to cement the reputation of the city on the world stage and within the local market. This leading global luxury hospitality brand will resonate strongly with guests both locally and overseas.”
The new property will have an ocean-view bar, two specialty and fine dining restaurants, a Ritz-Carlton Spa and banquet and meeting spaces.
