All of us – even the most pragmatic and unromantic of our species – have, at some time or another, harboured fantasies of being waited upon hand and foot. If that fantasy is still alive, make your way to The Leela Palace Bangalore, and enjoy an indulgent retreat in an abode fit for royalty.

The fact that the Ritz-Carlton’s first foray into India took place in Bengaluru and not in the other Indian cities says a lot about the charm and green appeal of the city.

Responsible Luxury – a phrase that sounds like an oxymoron. At the ITC Gardenia Bengaluru, this is a flourishing concept and one that’s been embraced with much gusto. The location of the hotel – mere minutes from the lush Cubbon Park – certainly helps but locality alone isn’t the main pull. What makes the ITC Gardenia unflinchingly unique is its deep commitment to environmental friendly policies and ecologically sound practices.
