The recently unveiled Shangri-La Hotel in Bengaluru, India will be the city’s leading business destination

Nicknamed the Garden City, Bengaluru is the capital state of Karnataka in India and is renowned for its environment. Bringing the sophistication of the city into the design, Shangri-La Hotel in Bengaluru opened recently, and is designed for business and dining with restaurants and bars sitting next  to appealing public and meeting places around green space.

Shangri-La Hotel in Bengaluru offers 397 rooms sited on nearly two acres in a leafy environment on Place Road, located thirty minutes from the city's international airport. With its design reminiscent of bygone regal era, the nine-metre-high lobby showcases nine cylindrical chandeliers and columns highlighted by wall sconces calling attention to intricate Indian motifs.

The interior of the hotel matches the city's nickname by incorporating embellished tiles, carpets and wood carved screens with abstract floral silhouettes. Imported marble from Italy, Turkey and China and textiles from the UK and Asia have also been used to decorate the public spaces.

The lobby lounge includes a sandstone wall from Rajasthan. Reaching almost 36 sq-m in size, it depicts a gold-stained palm leaf pattern. Guestrooms of the hotel present a soothing retreat in beige tones, while the function rooms are spread over two levels. The Grand Ballroom of the hotel, with a ceiling height of 9.5 metres, is one of the largest meeting spaces in Bengaluru, holding up to 900 guests. It is supported by five additional and versatile function rooms on level two.
