Ode to Grandeur

Regal and luxurious, ITC Royal Bengal, is a fitting tribute to the warmth and hospitality of the City of Joy and its aristocratic lineage

Luxury is often defined as a state of great comfort that comes from the finer things in life. Hotels are an embodiment of this spirit of luxury. From plush rooms to fine dining, from opulent banquet halls to decadent spa treatments, hotels woo their guests with luxurious services and state-of-the-art facilities. This is particularly true for ITC Royal Bengal – the newest addition to ITC properties in India. Situated in Kolkata, the City of Joy, ITC Royal Bengal is a massive edifice that exudes luxury, decadence and sophistication. Housing 456 rooms and suites, including 82 serviced apartments, this hotel is an ode to the city’s rich cultural heritage. Bringing alive the finest culinary experience, ITC Royal Bengal presents as many as five award-winning dining destinations. The 5,630-square-foot banqueting space is perfect for hosting social gatherings, commercial launches and power meetings. The hotel’s globally acclaimed Kaya Kalp Spa is ideal for spending a few tranquil hours as you dispense with jangled nerves under the healing hands of an expert masseuse.

LocationLocated at the heart of the business district of Kolkata, the hotel is a 40-minute drive from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. The IT hub of Salt Lake is also nearby and so is Rajarhat– the new satellite town of the city.
