Leela Palaces, Hotels & Resorts is set to open its eighth property in Chennai in the South East of India this spring, which will be the city’s first beachfront luxury hotel.
The opening of Leela Palace Chennai will bring back some of the early glory of its history as the UK’s first bastion in India from which an empire grew – it was formerly a banana grove.
Located in a quiet residential area of Chennai, the 14-storey hotel is located on a 6.25-acre site facing the Bay of Bengal and will feature 329 rooms and suites; five international restaurants, serving Indian, Italian, Asian, Western and Japanese food; a dessert bar; spa; swimming pool and fitness centre. A 24-hour butler service will also be available in the Royal Club.
