InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a management agreement with Adyar Gate Hotels Limited for an InterContinental Hotel in Chennai, India.

When it opens later this year, the 106-room InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort will join InterContinental Mumbai Marine Drive to be the second hotel under the company's luxury brand in India.

InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort is located along the beachfront on East Coast Road in the south of Chennai, just 30 kilometres from Chennai International Airport.

Scheduled to open later this year, the luxury resort will offer three gourmet dining outlets including, a spa, fully-equipped health club, outdoor pool and a banquet facility for events.

Shantha de Silva, Head of South West Asia, IHG, said, With its growing popularity as a tourism destination, the Tamil Nadu capital is a key growth city for us and, with its proximity to both the business district and tourist attractions such as the UNESCO world heritage site at Mahabalipuram, the location of the new InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort is second to none. We are delighted to be working with Adyar Gate Hotels Limited to manage this great resort and are confident our global scale and system will help us drive revenue and occupancy in the resort when it opens later this year."
