Jaipur Marriott opens in royal state


MARRIOTT International has taken its signature Marriott Hotels & Resorts brand to Rajasthan with the opening of the 365-room Jaipur Marriott Hotel.

With seven separate food and beverage outlets and 43,000 sq ft of meeting space, the contemporary property is currently the state’s largest hotel in terms of rooms and event space. Popularly known as the Pink City, Jaipur is the capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan.  Founded in 1727, Jaipur is one of the finest planned cities of India and, with a population of more than 3.9 million, is a growing hub for business and leisure tourism.

“With tremendous growth as a business hub during the past few years, Jaipur is set to become one of the most sought-after destinations for both leisure and for business travellers in India,”  said Rajeev Menon, Marriott International’s area vice president, India, Maldives, Malaysia and Australia.  “The Jaipur Marriott Hotel will set a new benchmark for lodging in the city.”

The property combines a sense of place with the latest style and design of Marriott Hotels & Resorts.

The plush, earthy tones and the light, airy interiors decorated with Rajasthani murals, latticework carvings and iconic stone carved elephants create an inimitable aura.

The leather and wood combination on the ceilings and water cascading on glass throughout the hotel create a welcoming feel.

The heart and social hub of the hotel is the lobby which incorporates two of the  seven food and beverage outlets. The Jaipur Baking Company adapts the classic pastry shop, with an interactive open baking area serving freshly baked pastries and cakes. Lounge 18 is divided into zones such as social, business and individual where guests can enjoy a drink.

For all-day dining, Okra serves international cuisine in a stylish, contemporary setting. Aqua, the pool bar and deli provides a wonderful escape from the city and the Rajasthan summer.

The new hotel is equipped to host meetings, wedding parties and conventions on a scale previously not seen in Rajasthan with two ballrooms, nine breakaway venues, four meeting rooms, a lawn for outdoor function and a 43,000-sq-ft meeting room for grand functions.

In the pipeline is Saffron, a fine dining Indian restaurant serving culinary influences from Maharajas’ palaces to quintessential Indian street food; Alto Vino, a modern and stylish Italian restaurant; a multi-level nightclub and The Quan Spa, which when open will offer 10,000 sq ft of complete rejuvenation and fitness, with a an adult and kids’ pool.
