A new Taj resort has been signed by the Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) in Bengaluru. The second phase of this development project, which is managed by Sattva Homes Private Limited from the Sattva Group, will also include branded villas as a part of the complex.
Commenting on the signing, Puneet Chhatwal, MD and CEO, IHCL, said, “The signing of this resort, the seventh property under the Taj brand in Bengaluru, will further strengthen IHCL’s presence in one of India’s top commercial cities with a constantly evolving hospitality landscape. This resort getaway will be our 13th hotel across brands in Bengaluru. We are delighted to partner with the Sattva Group for this project.”
The 45-acre resort is situated near Rajanukunte, North Bengaluru, and is easily accessible by driving from the airport and the city centre. 50 Taj-branded villas and 254 keys will be part of the greenfield project. It will have multiple restaurants and bars and a variety of flexible conference spaces with outdoor areas, making it the ideal getaway from the city for hosting both business and social events. Additionally, guests will access recreational amenities like a pool, exercise centre, and the renowned Jiva spa.
Adrija Agarwal, the director of Sattva, said, “The proposed Taj urban resort will be a great new address in the city and it would appeal to all kinds of guests. It is the group’s formal foray into hospitality and we are pleased to collaborate with IHCL’s iconic brand Taj as a first step in our partnership.”
