Renaissance Hotels Enters Bengaluru

Renaissance Hotels, part of Marriott International, recently announced the opening of the Renaissance Bengaluru Race Course Hotel. It is the brand’s first hotel in South India and the fourth in line to join the Renaissance Hotels India portfolio. Reinforcing the brand’s global commitment to design, the hotel features horse-inspired design motifs given its locale, setting the stage for guests to go “off-script” and experience unconventional travel.

Neeraj Govil, Area Vice President, South Asia, Marriott International, said, “With the debut of the Renaissance Bengaluru Race Course Hotel, guests can experience a global, lifestyle hospitality brand that seeks to inspire, and encourages spontaneous discovery when travelling, be it for business or pleasure.” He added, “The hospitality sector is moving ahead at a very fast pace, and India is a strategic growth market for us right now. The rise of the middle class, increasing disposable incomes and double-digit growth in domestic tourism are very positive trends. Bengaluru as a market is witnessing phenomenal growth, its booming tech scene makes it one of the country’s most dynamic cities with exceptional economic growth and strong business activity

With 276 modern and artfully designed rooms, the Renaissance Bengaluru Race Course Hotel offers an unsurpassed view of the Bangalore Turf Club. Establishing its proximity to this iconic Turf Club, the design elements at the hotel revolves around many horse-related aspects, in line with the brand’s design philosophy of “look and look again.” Life-sized horse heads, symbolic of locally incorporated features, greet guests at the entrance of the hotel. The famous Channapatna toys – handmade from wood and natural colors – native to the state of Karnataka are thoughtfully placed across various locations within the property, bringing elements of the local artisan community alive, while the hotel corridors are adorned with paintings of horses, lending an element of quiet grandeur.

The hotel features four incredible culinary outlets – Lush, the casual all-day dining restaurant serving delectable cuisines from across the world; Cinnamon, the one-stop destination for gourmet delicatessen items and sweet treats; R Bar is a stylish pub with a contemporary twist featuring live bands as a part of the brand’s signature program RLife Live.
 To add an essence of art to R Bar, a life-size wooden horse is suspended from the restaurant’s ceiling making for a very compelling image; and the Pool Bar offers a delightful break from city life, with a healthy mix of Chef’s special detox salads served along with poolside favorites. Leisure facilities at the hotel include a full-service spa and an outdoor swimming pool.
MXLLS​​For the true social discoverer, the hotel’s Navigators will help experience the neighborhood’s soul by highlighting the hidden gems and handpicked local discoveries – the best in cuisine, music, arts and more.

We are proud to be a part of this incredible growth story and see the hotel serve as a platform for guests to explore and share all that is vibrant and exciting about the city. With a distinct and conscious effort to present local experiences in an unusual manner, the Renaissance Bengaluru Race Course Hotel will always have that unexpected surprise waiting for its guests.” said Firoz Jangaria, General Manager, Renaissance Bengaluru Race Course Hotel.
