Worldhotels Adds Four Lalit Hotels in India to Portfolio

Worldhotels has expanded its portfolio of hotels in the Asia Pacific region with the addition of four affiliates from The Lalits portfolio, comprising The Lalit New Delhi, The Lalit Mumbai, The Lalit Ashok Bangalore, and The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata.

One of Indias fastest-growing hotel groups, The Lalit currently operates 11 properties in key destinations around the country. The alliance bolsters Worldhotels presence in India where it now represents a total of nine hotels.

The Lalit New Delhi

Nestled in the heart of New Delhis Connaught Place, The Lalit hotel has 461 generously-sized living spaces.

Upscale shopping centres and heritage monuments surround the 18-storey hotel which offers guests a choice of seven dining venues and 33,959 square feet of conference and meeting spaces. Other facilities include a full-service business centre, an art gallery, Rejuve Spa, an outdoor pool with under-water music, as well as the award-winning Kitty Su night club.

The Lalit Mumbai

The Lalit Mumbai is located close to the citys international airport and just minutes away from business and financial districts.

The hotel houses 368 guest rooms and suites, six dining outlets, a private movie theatre and over 50,000 square feet of conference and banquet space.

The Lalit Ashok Bangalore

Situated in the diplomatic enclave of cosmopolitan Bengaluru is The Lalit Ashok, nestled amidst 10 acres of landscaped lawns. Besides its exclusive location, the hotel is known for its contemporary dining options and some of the citys largest banquet facilities.

The hotel features 184 rooms and suites that afford either a birds eye perspective of an 18-hole golf course or overlook the hotels inviting azure pool.

The Lalit Ashok is also home to the Gandhi Smarak, where Mahatma Gandhi used to conduct evening prayer meetings whilst staying in Bangalore in the late 1920s. Complementing its splendid legacy with distinctive ambience and modern guest amenities, The Lalit Ashok has long remained the favoured destination of the travel community visiting The Garden City.

The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata

From its early days as a thriving confectionary shop and meeting place for the East India Companys officers in the late 1830s, The Lalit Great Eastern has played an intrinsic part in the life of Bengal.

 Widely hailed as Jewel of the East and Best Hotel East of the Suez, the hotels heritage and history are celebrated in details like a beautifully-restored century-old piano in the lobby and an 8-foot replica of a trophy bestowed on the hotel by Queen Elizabeth II.

Meticulously restored and renovated, the hotel is an amalgamation of styles that span three eras Victorian, Edwardian, and Contemporary - epitomised by three different blocks of the hotel.

From living spaces that combine the best of timeless legacy and heritage to top-class amenities and the best of Bengali cuisine, The Lalit Great Eastern has a truly unique sense of place, upholding the distinction of being the longest continuously operating hotel for 165 years.

We are incredibly honoured to finally bring on board the highly anticipated hotels from one of Indias largest luxury hotel groups - The Lalit. India is emblematic of Worldhotels growth momentum in the region, and the arrival of these four extraordinary affiliates of character and charm reinforces our commitment to growing our portfolio in this key market, said Roland Jegge, Worldhotels Executive Vice President Asia Pacific. With the hotels strategic locations, refined elegance and legendary service standards, we look forward to collectively offer guests unsurpassed experiences true to both the destination and the Worldhotels brand ethos.
