IHCL on Monday announced the opening of Raajkutir, an IHCL SeleQtions hotel in Kolkata, West Bengal. The heritage-inspired hotel embodies the spirit of the Bengal renaissance, the company said. This is the company’s first SeleQtions branded hotel in the city.

Puneet Chhatwal, managing director and chief executive officer of IHCL said, “Kolkata is a major business and cultural centre, and we remain committed to growing our presence in East India. This new opening further strengthens our partnership with the Ambuja Neotia Group”.

The property is a 33-key old-world traditional Bengali Rajbari design — a palatial house typically belonging to royalty or aristocracy. It features the company’s Jiva Spa brand as well as approximately 4,600 sq. meters of indoor and outdoor banqueting space.

With the addition of this hotel, the company will have six hotels across brands in Kolkata, including two under development. It has 24 SeleQtions hotels including 18 in operation.
