Bangalore is packed with awe-inspiring attractions such as the beautiful Victoria Memorial made entirely of solid white marble, and representing a unique combination of classical European architecture; the Indian Museum; the Nandan cultural hub; the vibrant Chowringhee Road with its numerous pavement vendors; and the South City Mall to name a few. The hotel offers plenty of opportunity to relax after a busy day exploring Bangalore: cool off in its pool, or work up a sweat before dinner at the state-of-the-art gym.
Alfresco is the hotel’s main restaurant offering all-day multi-cuisine including signature dishes from Bengal, served to beautiful views of the lily pond and hotel courtyard. Guests can enjoy international dishes, including buffets, high tea and cocktails at the luxurious Legacy Lounge that excuses old-world colonial charm.
