Mövenpick to open Bangalore business property in 2008

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is breaking into the Indian market by signing a management contract for a business hotel in Bangalore. The five-star property is scheduled to open in 2008. The new development will be located in the prime business and residential district of Bangalore, only 30 minutes from the new international airport, which will also be inaugurated in 2008. The Mövenpick Hotel Bangalore will offer 220 rooms and suites plus modern business amenities including a ballroom and conference rooms for up to 1,000 as well as a business centre. Other facilities include a spa and leisure centre and a swimming pool. "Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is very well established in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and enjoys an outstanding reputation", said new holding company MS Ramaiah Hotels director Kodandaram Ramaiah. "We’re convinced that the philosophy of genuine Swiss hospitality will also be enthusiastically embraced in India." President and CEO of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Jean Gabriel Pérès added: "The fact that Bangalore has a strong demand for hotels of this standard makes us extremely confident," he said. "We’re delighted to have found a strong partner in the MS Ramaiah Group to enable us to take this first step into the Indian market. We expect to be able to announce further projects soon, aimed at establishing our brand on a broader base in India."
