Isadore Sharp, founder and chairman, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts visits Bengaluru for the first time
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the luxury hospitality company, together with Embassy Group, the Indian property developers, recently welcomed Four Seasons founder and chairman Isadore Sharp and his wife Rosalie Sharp on their first visit to Bengaluru.
While in Bengaluru, Sharp met with the team and staff of the yet-to-be launched Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru at Embassy ONE and Four Seasons Private Residences Bengaluru at Embassy ONE. Slated to be launched later this year, both properties will be located within Embassy ONE, a new mixed-use development featuring commercial office space and premium retail outlets. Harmoniously balancing the needs of the everyday and the exceptional, Embassy ONE will be home to the first Four Seasons private residences in the country.
Sharp also met with Jitu Virwani, chairman & managing director of Embassy Group as the two entrepreneurial visionaries discussed growth opportunities for the Indian hospitality sector and explored ways to promote business engagement.
According to Sharp, “Bengaluru is a fast-evolving city, with a vibrant lifestyle. The city is home to IT professionals from across the world – many have travelled expansively and are looking for distinctive luxury experiences in the city. We are delighted to partner with the Embassy Group as we expand our horizons in this country. Our experience in Mumbai has demonstrated the natural warmth and hospitality of India, a culture that matches Four Seasons perfectly.”
Further commenting he added, “India is an incredibly important market for us at Four Seasons, and our launch in Bengaluru is an important milestone. Today, the Indian hospitality sector is a testament to continuous innovation and remarkable expansion coupled by the highest standards of customer service. We are delighted to be part of this sector as we prepare to take it to new heights.”
Virwani said, “We are delighted to welcome Isadore Sharp and his delegation to our city. Avant-garde Four Seasons properties and exceptional customer service offer an unmatched experience around the world and we are excited about bringing that experience to our patrons. Our partnership with Four Seasons will allow us to offer guests and residents the highest levels of personalised service that the brand is known to deliver and help distinguish Embassy ONE as one of best accommodation and living experiences in the city.”
The Embassy ONE development consists of three new buildings, with the Hotel and Private Residences located in the North and South Towers, and the third building housing the office and retail space. The 230-room Hotel, designed by HKS Architects and Studio u+a, with interiors by Yabu Pushelburg, will be located in the South Tower of the development, with the 105 Private Residences occupying the upper floors of the South Tower as well as all 30 floors of the North Tower.
