#1 : Because it’s the first (and only) Ritz Carlton in India: The luxury chain Ritz Carlton, known for its world class shopping, dining and entertainment options is part of the Marriott International. The story of The Ritz-Carlton began with Swiss hotelier César Ritz who was well known in the hotel industry as the “king of hoteliers and hotelier to kings”. Ritz redefined luxury accommodation in Europe with his management of The Ritz in Paris and the Carlton Hotel in London, among others. The ownership changed hands later, but the chain is still known for its hotels that make you feel like a king.
#2: Magnificent interiors: The 277-room contemporary Ritz-Carlton hotel is actually reminiscent of the beautiful Taj Mahal, with its white marble interiors replete with the Jaali design from the Mughal era. It offers stunning panoramic city views. With 1,280 pieces of contemporary art from prominent artists, The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore is home to the largest collection inside a hotel!
#3: Gastronomic Delights: The hotel features seven luxurious dining venues, guided by Executive chef Anupam Banerjee of Michelin Star expertise. The Lantern, designed by Japanese interior designers, Super Potato, is Bangalore’s stunning three-level restaurant, shaped like a glass Lantern. It serves Chinese. The Market all-day dining venue, also created by Super Potato, has a unique wine room and private dining spaces for guests. And the signature fine dining restaurant Riwaz, designed by Peter Silling, serves authentic dishes from India’s North West Frontier in a contemporary space. If you are in Bangalore you must try the legendary Ritz-Carlton Afternoon Tea service. You will be surprised that tea (and all the delicacies that come with it) can be so good!
#4: The Spa: We love the Ritz-Carlton Spa managed by the global luxury spa brand Espa. The dreamy Jacuzzi, expansive couple suite and the very relaxing waiting lounge which looks as if it is out of some fairytale book are few features that set the spa apart from other luxury spas in the city. Besides the spa, Level 5 at the Ritz Carlton also houses the internationally acclaimed Rossano Ferretti salon, a state-of-the-art fitness facility with a fully-equipped Technogym and an outdoor swimming pool with poolside lounge and bar. You can relax in private cabanas with inviting daybeds and cocoons that offer privacy and comfort.
#5: Get High: And the hotel is home to the city’s highest rooftop bar and sky lounge, Bang, designed by Imagination. This is the place where guests can enjoy the best sunsets and panoramic views of Bangalore over cocktails and Jaali inspired dishes.
