Marriott has signed a management contract with Prestige Estates Projects Private Limited, for a 300-room golf resort, spa, and convention center in Bangalore, India.
When opened in 2012, the Bangalore Marriott Golf Resort & Convention Center at Nandi Hills will be Marriott’s fifth property in Bangalore and 30th in India.
The Bangalore Marriott Golf Resort & Convention Center at Nandi Hills will be part of a 300-acre, mixed-use project in the city’s Nandi Hills area, approximately 10 kilometers from the airport. The project will also consist of a first-class 18-hole golf course and a residential community comprised of approximately 225 single-family homes.
“We continue to be excited by the robust opportunity India presents as we implement our global growth strategy,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director for international lodging at Marriott. “This particular project holds great promise. Its golf course, extensive conference facilities which, at 1,940 square meters will be the largest among the hotel’s competitors, and spa will be an enormous advantage in helping the hotel penetrate more than its fair share in the meeting, convention and leisure segments.”
Guest rooms at the Bangalore Marriott Golf Resort & Convention Center at Nandi Hills will feature stylish appointments and Marriott’s famed plush bed and bath linens and amenities.
For dining and entertainment, the hotel will have three restaurants, including an all-day casual restaurant offering three meals daily and two specialty dining outlets; a lobby lounge, pool bar and entertainment bar.
In addition to the golf course, which will be operated by Prestige, recreational amenities will include a 1,800 square-meter spa, sauna, gym, Jacuzzi and 10 treatment rooms; a fitness center and an outdoor swimming pool.
Other amenities include a business center with four workstations, two offices, a meeting room for small conferences and two boardrooms; an executive floor and lounge with its own meeting room; retail shops; and a gift/sundries shop.
For conferences and social events, the Bangalore Marriott Golf Resort & Convention Center at Nandi Hills will offer 1,940 square meters of space including a 1,200 square-meter ballroom which will be divisible into five sections: a 450 square- meter junior ballroom divisible into two sections; three individual meeting rooms, each also divisible into two sections; and a 50 square-meter ballroom.
