Updated: June 2013

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, one of Asia’s leading luxury hotel groups, has signed a management contract with India’s Adarsh Group to operate Shangri-La Hotel, Bangalore, on Palace Road, scheduled to open in 2014.

Strategically located in the central business district of Bangalore, Shangri-La Hotel, Bangalore will feature 397 deluxe guestrooms including 40 suites.  The hotel has named Singapore-based Wilson Associates as interior designers. Guestrooms are designed to be modern and will reflect a classic yet contemporary style combined with local cultural influences.  Wireless and broadband internet access will be available in each room to meet the needs of business travellers.  The hotel will provide four dining and entertaining outlets including a Chinese, a specialty and an all-day dining restaurant as well as an open-air terrace adjacent to the lobby lounge for light refreshments. Meeting and banqueting facilities include a grand ballroom of 500 square metres. 

Established more than 200 years ago, Bangalore is located on the southern Deccan Plateau and is the capital of the State of Karnataka, India.  Home to over seven million people, it is one of the fastest growing cities in India.  It is aptly called the “Garden City” owing to its large number of lakes and parks.  Bangalore is also known as “Silicon Valley of India,” with its focus on information technology and concentration on software technology-related activities.  Most recently, it has also become known as India’s bio science capital.

“This addition of Shangri-La expands our presence in India and complements Shangri-La's - Eros Hotel, New Delhi.” said Greg Dogan, Shangri-La’s president and chief executive officer.      

“We are delighted to be associated with Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts which will redefine hospitality standards for the modern millennium traveller and set new definitions of excellence in culinary concepts and services in Bangalore,” said B. M. Jayeshankar, chairman and managing director of Adarsh Group.

“Bangalore will soon enjoy a new breed of hotel with Shangri-La’s world-class hospitality and services, setting a new benchmark in the India hospitality industry,” said Ravi Seth, vice president - hospitality, Adrash group.
                 
Since its inception in 1988, the Adarsh Group has been developing residential and commercial properties in Bangalore, offering apartments, independent villas, office and retail spaces, and software technology parks.  The group is incorporated with a vision and commitment to develop projects par excellence in India.
