The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) is to open a Vivanta branded hotel at Heathrow Airport in London.

The hospitality group has collaborated with Hayre Group Ltd for this project, which is set to open in 2021.

Located across from Terminals 1 (now defunct), 2 and 3, the property will feature 108 guestrooms, an all-day-dining restaurant, a bar and lounge, as well as a gym and banqueting space for large and small gatherings.

The hotel will also feature the fourth outpost of the Bombay Brasserie restaurant brand.

Puneet Chhatwal, managing director and chief executive officer at The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) said:

“IHCL was the first Indian hospitality company to foray into the United Kingdom with the iconic St James’ Court hotel in 1982.

“Today, we are proud to partner with Hayre Group Limited in bringing the first Vivanta branded hotel to London.

“This signing is in line with our growth strategy of adding hotels in key locations globally.”
