Swisstel has signed its first hotel in Bangladesh.

The Swisstel Dhaka is located in the new Business District of Gulshan and is scheduled to open in 2018.

 The Swisstel Dhaka will feature 375 guest rooms and suites with a minimum room size of 38 sqm, six restaurants and bars, 950 sqm of event space including a 500 sqm ballroom, as well as a Provel spa with a swimming pool and other recreational amenities.

The hotel will be easily accessible for travelers being just 12km from the airport and across from the new financial leisure district of Motijheel which is a fresh water lake recently converted into a leisure and recreation area.

 Numerous multinational companies, office complexes, embassies and high-end residences are located near the Swisstel Dhaka in the adjacent Gulshan business district.

 The proposed underground train connection, as well as an 8km stretch of elevated highway, which is presently undergoing construction will also provide easy access to the various manufacturing and economic centers of Dhaka.

With its population of 20 million, Dhaka is one of the largest cities in South Asia and is both the capital city and major industrial center of Bangladesh strategically located between India and Myanmar. The close proximity to China and Thailand enhances the strategic importance of Bangladesh as a country with a rapidly growing economy supported primarily by manufacturing and textile production.

 Meinhard Huck, President Swisstel Hotels & Resorts, said, Dhaka is experiencing sustainable growth, particularly in the financial and textile manufacturing sectors, but also in telecommunications and service industries which has resulted in strong demand for high quality hotel accommodation.

The Swisstel Dhaka is being developed by the Bengal Group, founded in 1969 by the Chairman Morshed Alam.
