The launch of Conrad Pune in Maharashtra next year will mark the global luxury brand’s entry into the country. 

Conrad Hotels & Resorts, part of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of brands, has established a reputation for offering today's contemporary and sophisticated travellers a world of style and intuitive service.

“Conrad Hotels & Resorts has a global portfolio of 23 properties in key gateway cities and resort destinations that offer luxury experiences by offering guests intuitive service, a world of style and infinite connections,” said John T. A. Vanderslice, global head, luxury and lifestyle brands, Hilton Worldwide.  “Pune is a key gateway destination and we are delighted to establish our brand’s presence in India, one of the key strategic growth markets for Hilton Worldwide, starting with this wonderful city.”

Staying true to the brand’s essence of providing a world of style, while connecting guests with the local experiences surrounding them, Conrad Pune will be an iconic structure towering over Mangaldas Road, strategically located within the central business district of Pune.  It will be minutes from the commercial and entertainment hubs in Kalyani Nagar, prime government institutions in Yerwada and premier residential neighbourhoods of Koregaon Park and Bund Garden.  Kharadi and Ganeshkind Road will be within eight kilometres of the hotel and the Pune International Airport six kilometres away.

“The signing of this agreement reiterates our commitment to developing Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio of brands in India.  At present, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and DoubleTree by Hilton, as well as Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton have a presence in India,” said Martin Rinck, President, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide. “In launching the first Conrad hotel in India, we are delighted to have as our partner the K. Raheja Constructions Group who understands and shares our vision of the brand essence in delivering the Luxury of Being Yourself.

4Hoteliers Image LibraryWith its foundation in the Art Deco style, the design of Conrad Pune will be characterized by bold geometric shapes, dashes of striking colour and hints of lavish ornamentation.  Providing the backdrop will be expansive public spaces with high ceilings of up to 40 feet  (12 metres)  and dramatic columns.  The hotel will feature 310 luxurious guestrooms with the latest in-room technology and six-fixture marble baths.  Guests at the hotel will have the choice of six contemporary and innovative dining outlets.  The Large Ballroom, divisible into three, will have a break-away function room and a spacious pre-function area.  Additional conference and event facilities will include four boardrooms and a fully-equipped 24-hour business centre.    Recreational options will include an outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre, luxurious full-service spa and a salon.

"We are pleased to partner with Hilton Worldwide, a leading global hospitality company, and we are very excited about opening the first Conrad hotel in the country,” said Sandeep Raheja, managing director, K. Raheja Constructions Group.  “We believe that with its unique offering of luxury that is contemporary, stylish and innovative, the Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand will set a new benchmark in the hospitality industry in the country.”

Conrad Pune will also offer the popular mobile Conrad Concierge app, which gives global luxury travellers the ability to customize details of their hotel stay before, during and after each visit via a smartphone or tablet.  Whether it's pre-selecting bath amenities or checking-in while in-transit from the airport, guests can arrange access a variety of features at any of the 23 Conrad hotels worldwide by using the app.
