Singapore-based General Hotel Management and real-estate firm Rajesh LifeSpaces announce India’s first Chedi.

The Chedi Mumbai will open late this year in the city’s upcoming financial hub — Powai.

The property will feature 316 rooms with five F&B offerings, sprawling meeting spaces, a swimming pool and a spa.

“We have always wanted to plant a GHM flag in India and being able to establish The Chedi brand in the thriving city of Mumbai is an honour as well as a challenging opportunity my team and I are eager to face,” says Hans R. Jenni, director and president of GHM.

“Our collaboration with GHM is a union of resources that will maximise the potential for this hotel. The GHM team is not only providing hotel management expertise. Their concept for The Chedi Mumbai is one that will metamorphosise the current landscape and create a new buzz for lifestyle and quality dining in general,” says Rajesh Patel, the managing director of Rajesh LifeSpaces.

GHM operates hotels such as The Nam Hai Ho An in Vietnam, The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Indonesia and The Chedi Muscat, Oman. It has about ten hotels in the pipeline in destinations including Maldives, Taiwan, Japan and China.
