South Asia's largest hospitality firm, Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), has opened its first Vivanta hotel in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. The hotel has a modern style that pays homage to the colourful energy of the city.
“This inauguration is in keeping with IHCL's aim to be present in all state capitals of India,” said Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of IHCL. “With its rich past and abundant natural beauty, we feel Odisha has great commercial and tourist potential. We are thrilled to announce the opening of Vivanta Bhubaneswar, which will be a part of the city's fast transformation into a business hub and an important tourist destination,” he added.
Vivanta Bhubaneswar features 136 beautifully furnished rooms and suites, as well as a selection of varied cuisine options, and is located in a booming business sector just minutes from Bhubaneswar International Airport. Wink, the luxurious lounge, serves unique beverages and light snacks, while Mynt, the all-day diner, has a worldwide cuisine reminiscent of a bistro. Swirl, the deli, will provide some of the best confectionary in town, while the roof-top Poolbar is excellent for sundowners.
The hotel is ideal for weddings and gatherings, with the city's largest conferencing facilities, including a dedicated bridal room and poolside lawn. The award-winning Jiva Spa & Salon at the hotel's core is a haven of tranquilly, and the roof-top swimming pool provides guests with panoramic views of the city.
“We are ecstatic to be working on this hotel with Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL). The arrival of Vivanta would transform the state's hospitality scene and pave the way for other major hotel brands to enter the state, boosting the tourist and hotel sectors significantly,” said Jagadish Prasad Naik, Managing Director, Lifeline Multiventures Pvt Ltd.
Bhubaneswar, which has a long and illustrious history, was recently named the greatest location to do business in India, bolstering its position as a developing commercial powerhouse in the country. With the acquisition of this hotel, IHCL will now have four hotels in Odisha, one of which is currently under construction.
