Carlson Hotels Worldwide announced plans to expand its luxury brand Regent Hotels & Resorts into India with the opening of The Regent Gurgaon in late 2013. The Regent Gurgaon is the latest expansion of the Regent brand globally with several other properties currently under development: The Regent Bangkok, Thailand; The Regent Doha, Qatar; The Regent Dubrovnik, Croatia; The Regent Emirates Pearl, Abu Dhabi; The Regent Kuala Lumpur, Mayalsia; The Regent Maldives; The Regent Manila Bay, the Philippines, The Regent Palmas Del Mar Puerto Rico; and The Regent Phuket Cape Panwa, Thailand. All are scheduled to open within the next three years.
"The Regent brand has strong historical roots in Asia," said Hubert Joly, president and CEO of Carlson. "With this new property, Regent will now have a total of nine properties in the region, including three in operation, and six contracted projects."
Gurgaon is one of New Delhi's four major satellite cities. The Regent Gurgaon, along with The Regent Residences is being developed by Pioneer Urban Land and Infrastructure Ltd, one of Gurgaon's largest real estate developers. Both the hotel and residences will be part of a 75 acre mixed-use development called "Pioneer Park" under the "New Gurgaon Masterplan 2021," which includes the planned development of over 33,000 hectares of land into residential, commercial and retail facilities.
The Regent Gurgaon will feature 160 guestrooms and suites. It also will include a spa sanctuary for guests to enjoy therapeutic and relaxing treatments. Other hotel amenities include an intimate and sophisticated restaurant featuring a wide range of high quality wines and cigars, state-of-the-art ballroom and boardrooms, and the Regent Bar, an ideal setting for a casual soiree, high tea or evening cocktails.
