“The addition of ITC Royal Bengal to our luxury hotel portfolio further strengthens our presence in Eastern India,” said Nakul Anand, executive director, ITC Ltd. “Bengal is ‘Royal’ in a unique way – it has celebrated the royalty of the intellect through the centuries, where literature, poetry, painting, sculpture, theatre, cinema, science, have not only blossomed, but are inherent to the fabric of Bengal.”
A contemporary Indian spirit underscores the ITC Royal Bengal’s architecture and design philosophy to enable a “sense of destination.” The property incorporates local cuisine, arts and culture along with hi-tech accents on services to enhance the guest experience.
The sprawling property symbolizes the traditions of the region through culinary offerings that include the acclaimed Royal Vega, featuring the luxury vegetarian cuisine of India.

The new property boasts a 16,400-square-foot ballroom, with prefunction areas and an attached outer courtyard that adds 33,000 square feet of venue space.
The lobby spaces and lawns, totaling 61,000 square feet, are ideal for events, offering versatile banquet options for both business meetings and social celebrations.
