The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has opened a second hotel in India, The Ritz-Carlton, Pune. Situated in the heart of Pune’s CBD, the hotel is ideally located for travellers seeking to take in the sights and unique experiences of this dynamic metropolis.
Set to elevate luxury in Pune, the hotel’s design reflects a seamless union of classical grandeur and timeless sophistication, offering both traditional and modern points of view. Small details such as design motifs inspired by Indian silhouettes and classic chandeliers gracefully evoke a sense of place. Celebrating the history and spirit of the city, guests will be invited every evening to toast to golden hour at Aasma, the hotel’s rooftop lounge, where they can learn the meaning behind the venue’s name and enjoy skyline views.
The hotel features 198 elegantly appointed guestrooms and 35 suites, designed to be refined and relaxing sanctuaries that are also the largest in the city. The Ritz-Carlton, Pune offers an exceptional Presidential Suite that is spread across 293 square metres and includes two bedrooms, a walk-in closet, a spacious living room and dining area, private bar and in-suite treatment room.
Guests staying on the Club Level floors will enjoy access to the signature Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, an urban sanctuary on the 18th floor that features picturesque views of the golf course, private check-in, a dedicated Club Concierge, and a variety of culinary presentations throughout the day.
Capturing the essence of the destination, there are five signature dining experiences. Gourmet world cuisine at Three Kitchens and Bar welcomes guests by offering three residential-style kitchens. The modern Japanese restaurant Ukiyo features a long sushi counter and robata grill complemented by an expansive selection of saké while The Ritz-Carlton Tea Lounge brings the time-honoured custom of afternoon tea to the city. Vida Bar & Grill is a craft cocktail destination and Aasma, a rooftop lounge serving Indian cuisine.
Also on-site is the Ritz-Carlton Spa with its eight treatment rooms and Express Pods which combine bespoke services, custom facials and unique treatments steeped in Ayurveda traditions and chakra energy.
