Swissôtel has signed its third hotel in India, the Swissôtel Grand Mumbai.

The company opened its first hotel in India, the Swissôtel Kolkata, in 2010, and has another hotel under development in Bangalore. The Mumbai hotel is scheduled to open in 2014.

Located on Andheri Kurla Road in the heart of the new business district in the north of Mumbai, the new Swissôtel Grand Mumbai will offer a total of 300 guest rooms, executive rooms and suites.

The hotel’s conference and banqueting facilities will occupy a total area of around 1600m² including the main ballroom measuring 500m2 alone. The hotel will also have a Pürovel Spa & Sport center.

The hotel is in close proximity to a number of new grade A offices occupied by numerous multinational companies. The Andheri Kurla area, which has approximately 20% of Mumbai’s commercial office space supply, also features new shops and restaurants as well as a new metro line.

“This exciting project at the heart of Mumbai’s commercial centre will drive forward our expansion in the highly promising Indian market,” commented Meinhard Huck, President Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts. “India is the world’s second-largest nation and the numbers involved are huge. India is set to become the world’s third-largest economy by 2020 and consumer demand, particularly in the cities, is continually rising. A robust domestic tourism industry coupled with the increasing global nature of Indian businesses is boosting business travel and providing a very healthy platform for the growth of the hospitality industry. Amid this environment we see considerable potential for our hotel chain and are pleased to be working with a renowned partner, the Litolier Group, which appreciates our Swiss values.”

Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment capital of India, it is also one of the world’s top 10 centres of commerce in terms of global financial flow, generating 70% of maritime trade in India and 70% of capital transactions to India’s economy. Mumbai is home to financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India, the SEBI and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations.
