Located in the heart of the capital, Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan Hotel, a part of Marriot International portfolio, made its debut in Bangladesh on December 18. The Renaissance Hotels, a world renowned global lifestyle hotel brand, is well-known for their programs helping guests enjoy local experiences in the greatest possible extent.
The 211 rooms at Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan features interiors that are embellished with macramé textiles, made by local craftsmen and special thread work technique, the headboards for each room are exquisitely decorated with Jamdani work, and the floors are elaborated with lotus-patterned carpets. If that was not enough, the views from the rooms are exquisite, portraying the bustling city that is Dhaka. Furthermore, the interior has been polished off with minute details, highlighting the local culture, and is very subtle in its portrayal. One example can be the ceramic decoration piece of a frog, relaxing on the reading table — a delicate hint to the monsoon season of Bangladesh.
The rooms maybe restrained in inference to local culture, whereas the lobby is quite the opposite; outdoing the display of Bangladesh’s authenticity and liveliness. The entrance immediately engages guests with a concierge facility, highlighting the Royal Bengal Tiger with LED displays and laser prints. The lobby is also marked with bright red, lotus shaped sofas and subtle green hues, referencing to the lush greenery of our beautiful country. Guests can indulge in an eclectic mix of five restaurants and bars, offering a range of dining experiences and breath-taking skyline views. The Gulshan Baking Company or GBC, a French inspired deli, in the lobby, offers freshly brewed coffee, tea, home-made gelatos and much more. Bahar, an all-day dining restaurant, hosts live cooking stations, offering upscale buffet dining facilities and a-la carte meal in both local and international flavours. Sear Bar, the premier jazz bar, proudly announces to be the first jazz bar in town, promising to be the go-to venue for live music stations, paired with great food and signature cocktails. The signature R Bar, on the 19th floor, encompasses an invigorating infinity pool, offering a remarkable city view, one-of-a-kind décor, and refreshing drinks.
Other than all these, the Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan also offers world class spa facility, state-of the art meeting spaces, ballrooms, convention halls, and a fully equipped fitness centre.
Another unique facility offered at the hotel is the Navigator Concierge Program, which promises to connect guests with a personalised concierge service, helping them to discover the very best of local flavours.
With so many amenities designed to create experiences beyond the regular, Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan certainly promises its guests, an exceptional stay in Dhaka.
