The upscale hotel is set to cater to India’s fast growing business travel market and signs a new phase in the company’s strong expansion within Asia and the Indian Subcontinent following marked growth in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
The contemporary designed Movenpick Hotel & Spa Bangalore is set to offer five-star hospitality and is conveniently located near the main business districts of the city.
Andreas Mattmüller, CEO for Middle East & Asia said: “The Indian tourism sector is one of the fastest growing in the world and we are extremely excited about opening in Bangalore and entering the Indian market.”
Kodandaram Ramaiah, Managing Director MSR Hotel and owner of the upscale property, said he looked forward to a long and successful relationship with Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. “The company has built up a large profile in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and we look forward to drawing global travellers who know the brand, and introducing it to executives within the Subcontinent.”
Movenpick Hotels & Resorts has strong expansion plans in India and has recently announced a second property in the country, the Movenpick Dharamshala Resort & Spa, an exclusive 110-room resort in the Northern Indian Kangra Valley due to open in 2013.
