The Belair hotel is brilliantly located at the entrance to Whitefield, the IT/ITES hub of Bangalore, surrounded by some great restaurants and shopping and entertainment options by way of malls and multiplexes. Just off the Marathalli flyover.
The first thing that strikes you about the hotel is its openness. In a city that is rapidly becoming an urban nightmare, the Belair comes like a breath of fresh air. It takes you straight back to a gentler time when Bangalore was known for its beautiful buildings and its gardens.
Well, the Belair does not disappoint. The designers resisted the impulse to build from wall to wall. Instead, they have left space for a beautiful garden, dominated by a rugged granite rock feature, interspersed by full grown date palms, brightened by flowers of the season everywhere. The lawns flow right to the road; there are no walls to imprison the landscaped grounds.
The building itself soars above the gardens, open, airy, naturally ventilated. Set back from the road, the building does not dominate the gardens, but blends in. As you climb up to the front porch, you can’t miss the water cascade, the soothing sounds of which reinforce the impression of days long past. Step into the contemporary lobby, all glass and leather and chrome, and you will be amazed by the natural light that pours into the atrium from the glass skylight.
Leading off the Lobby, you will find an extremely well appointed Conference Room, ideal for Board Meetings, Sales Conferences, Training sessions – you get the picture. There is also the Vista Lounge – for those who want a quick discussion over a cup of coffee without having to walk to the restaurant. Ok, so you don’t have anything to discuss, you are just waiting for your car or have some time to kill? Great, step into the Vista Lounge for a cup of coffee, a cookie, or just watch some cricket action on the LCD screen from the comfort of a leather armchair!
The guest rooms come in a wide range of configurations, designed to suit the most demanding traveller. Yes, they have it all – central air-conditioning, mini bar, courtesy coffee maker, hair dryer, , LCD TV’s, cable television, direct dial telephones, Wi-fi internet access, hot and cold water – everything a good hotel should. What makes the Belair really different is that they offer facilities for long staying guests as well. The Club rooms at the Belair feature a small kitchenette, a fridge instead of a mini bar ,micro wave owen,induction stove on request extra than all rooms and the rooms are much larger to accommodate a dressing area.
Another great feature of the Belair is their desire to provide great accommodation to all comers, even if they have a modest budget. The Belair has two Annexes, just across the road. Both buildings offer smaller A/C rooms, but with basic amenities and at truly affordable rates!
The Belair is managed by IBC Hotels and Resorts Pvt Ltd; they have already made their mark on the hospitality map of Bangalore with their Senate and The Platinum servi suites properties.
