ITC inaugurates ITC Royal Bengal
ITC has launched ITC Royal Bengal, its new super-premium luxury hotel in Kolkata. This hotel is the ITC Hotel’s 14th Luxury Collection hotel in India.
The hotel has been inaugurated by Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal. The 456 keys ITC Royal Bengal is a befitting tribute to the timeless traditions and royal heritage of Bengal, which has been ITC’s headquarters for over 100 years.
The ITC Royal Bengal is built with an investment of nearly Rs 1400 crore. It will redefine Kolkata’s hospitality landscape making it a preferred destination for global MICE tourism and other large events.
Sanjiv Puri, Chairman and Managing Director, ITC, said, “We are delighted to announce the opening of the iconic ITC Royal Bengal. This signature property will provide further impetus to transforming the tourism landscape in the state and will be an icon of repute on the world tourism map. This landmark investment from ITC is a part of the Company’s growing footprint in the State across all sectors, namely agriculture, manufacturing and services.”
Nakul Anand, Executive Director of ITC, added, “The addition of ITC Royal Bengal to our luxury hotel portfolio further strengthens our presence in Eastern India. Bengal is ‘Royal’ in a unique way – it has celebrated the royalty of the intellect through the centuries, where literature, poetry, painting, sculpture, theatre, cinema, science, have not only blossomed, but are inherent to the fabric of Bengal. In keeping with ITC Hotels' philosophy of Responsible Luxury and creating indigenous experiences, ITC Royal Bengal is rooted to the ethos of the land and pays a tribute to these finest experiences that while being indigenous to the State are celebrated globally.”
