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

The company opened its first hotel in India, the Swisstel 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 Swisstel Grand Mumbai will offer a total of 300 guest rooms, executive rooms and suites.

The hotels conference and banqueting facilities will occupy a total area of around 1600m including the main ballroom measuring 500m2 alone. The hotel will also have a Provel 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 Mumbais commercial office space supply, also features new shops and restaurants as well as a new metro line.

This exciting project at the heart of Mumbais commercial centre will drive forward our expansion in the highly promising Indian market, commented Meinhard Huck, President Swisstel Hotels & Resorts. India is the worlds second-largest nation and the numbers involved are huge. India is set to become the worlds 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.
