The brand new Hyatt Regency Gurgaon has a stamp of royalty. Designed by Bangkok-based P49 Deesign, the hotel scores top marks in luxury and style.
It was a befitting birthday present. To mark its 30th year of operations in India, the Hyatt Hotels Corporation opened the Hyatt Regency Gurgaon, a hallmark in style, elegance and luxury.
Strategically located on the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway-8 and comfortably close to the international airport, the location of the property makes it an ideal base for business travellers as well as tourists wanting to cover the 'golden triangle' of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Gurgaon is also the hub of several national and international organisations and has emerged as an integral focal point of the hospitality industry. It is no surprise therefore that the Hyatt Group chose this destination to set up their most lavishly designed hotel.
NCR-based architect firm Kothari and Associates and Bangkok-based design studio P49 Deesign have put together a palatial setting while interior contractor Jasco International offered turnkey interiors and customised furniture for the grand hotel. Contemporary dTcor and vibrant hues distinguish the lobby and sixteen floors of the hotel, creating a relaxing ambience, offering guests a spacious and comfortable environment in the midst of a bustling city.
The hotel lobby is chic and contemporary and sports hues of aubergine and metallic silver. The wavy pattern on the ceiling is interesting. Not only does it cast a definitive focus on the seating area, it is also distinctly appealing. The deep purple and grey sofas offset the black and white Italian marble flooring. The two asymmetrical black pillars on the opposite ends are the highlight of the space. The carpets too have a repetitive aubergine and grey palette.
Hyatt Regency Gurgaon has the largest meeting and conference rooms in the city, with meetings and events floor cover crossing over 40,000 sq ft area. Second on their list of 'mostest' is the room inventory, with 451 rooms, making it the highest in the neighbourhood. The rooms (starting from 474 sq ft) and 37 luxurious suites are thoughtfully designed to contribute to the stylish and comfortable ambience. The lavish marble bathrooms are designed with facilities including a shower cabin, soaking tub and a wide range of bathroom amenities. The fittings for the bathrooms were especially sourced from Kohler.
The carpets have been sourced from Hong Kong-based Tai Ping and the wallpapers from Singapore-based Goodrich. The upholstery used in the different areas of the hotel comes from Bangkok-based Smile Designs.
The Hyatt Regency Gurgaon is all about great beauty from its design to its expanse û even to its kitchens. The hotel boasts of four themed restaurants, each vying with the other for supremacy. Lavana is the hotel's signature fine dining restaurant, serving Awadhi cuisine from the royal kitchens of the Nawabs.
Lavana means 'salt' in Sanskrit, the basic ingredient of great cooking. The restaurant offers a captivating ambience and a repertoire of royal favourites with intricate wooden trellis work on a backlit ceiling, artistically carved wooden arches and exquisite antique objets d'art. The private 12-seater dining area is separated by pretty beaded curtains. The restaurant is the perfect example of longstanding royal tradition meeting modern design, with a regal ambience, unobtrusive touches of texture, lighting and colour and an exquisitely decorated private dining room.
The hotel's key USP is its multi-purpose MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) space, which is the largest in the city. Situated on the ground floor of the hotel, this space is spread over a vast expanse of more than 40,000 sq ft. The magnificent pillar-less Regency Ballroom has an area of 20,710 sq ft and a majestic ceiling height of 28 ft. Built to accommodate up to 3,000 guests, the ballroom features the latest technology, surround sound system and conferencing facilities to provide an unparalleled audio-visual experience. It is the only ballroom in the country to house a Christie projector of 35,000 lumens along with 144 inbuilt LED Par Cans and eight moving heads.
The pre-function area outside the grand ballroom is a large space lit with diffused lights. Purple, the colour that is associated with royalty has been chosen to dress the high-back chairs lined along the walls of the room. Very grand, very regal. Just like regency.
The corporate biggies have special club facilities too. There are four floors dedicated completely to the Regency Club. With private check-ins and check-out facilities and limited access to a private boardroom, the Club, with its muted beige and brown dTcor framed by golden drapes, reeks exclusivity. Obviously, it's the den of a chosen few.
A corporate rendezvous, a swank soiree or just a chilled out stay, the chic and contem¡porary dTcor of Hyatt Regency Gurgaon, makes every reason worth its while.
