India Buzz: Ritz-Carlton to Debut in Mumbai




Big news for India's hotel scene: Oberoi Realty is preparing to bring the Ritz-Carlton brand to Mumbai with a new property in Worli.

The 238-room Ritz-Carlton will be located in the middle of central Mumbai. Worli is, as the company said in a statement, a "thriving new business district" with easy access to the international airport. While details are still scant, we hear the hotel will have "extensive banquet and meeting spaces" for "high-profile events." 

Live Mint reported that the property is spread across 17 acres and will have two towers, one of which will house the hotel, while the other will have 120 luxury residences. The hotel will be managed by Ritz-Carlton, and will include two specialty restaurants, an ocean view bar and a spa.

According to the Times of India, this new hotel is being developed for approximately $12 million and is expected to be completed in 2016 or 2017. The project is being developed by Oasis Realty, a joint venture between the Vikas-Oberoi-headed Oberoi Realty and the Sahana Group.

This opening follows the launch of the Ritz-Carlton Bangalore (pictured), making this the second Ritz-Carlton property in India.
