Hilton to debut Waldorf Astoria brand in India
Hilton has announced plans for the first Waldorf Astoria property in India. Waldorf Astoria Jaipur will offer 51 pool villas and 174 rooms across a 22 acre development overlooking the Aravalli Hills.
Facilities will include a spa, outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre, 2,400 sqm of meeting space and a further 3,000 sqm of lawns, courtyards and gardens. The hotel will also feature five dining options, including the brand’s signature Peacock Alley lounge and bar concept. Waldorf Astoria Jaipur is expected to open in 2027, and will join Hilton’s portfolio of 24 hotels currently operating in India, as well as a further 13 properties in the pipeline.
OMO Kansai Airport – an airport hotel so fun, you may not want to catch your flight.
Hoshino Resorts’ first airport hotel, OMO Kansai Airport, opened its doors on March 20 and has already been receiving top reviews from guests. The hotel aims to go beyond the experience of a usual airport hotel to provide something more for customers. OMO Kansai Airport offers guests a boutique hotel experience with plenty to see and do with the convenience of close proximity to the airport. The hotel features rooms with the characteristic charm of an OMO hotel as well as airport and aeroplane-themed lounges and common areas. OMO Base is a feature of OMO hotels. Each OMO Base provides neighbourhood maps and workspaces where guests can get a good understanding of the surrounding area or can take a break.
OMO Base at OMO Kansai Airport is located on the first and second floors and features airport and aeroplane themed interior designs to add a touch of fun for travellers. The second floor is connected directly to the train station, only one stop away from the airport.
On the 21st floor the hotel’s Express Full-Buffet high-rise restaurant offers a unique concept – a gourmet buffet. Guests can either enjoy the view while they dine or for those in a hurry – takeaway is available. The restaurant features okonomiyaki (Japanese savoury pancakes), a local specialty from the Kansai region and highly recommended for dinner. Another unique feature is the large public bath area that includes an indoor bath and a partly open-air bath. An integral part of Japanese culture are onsen (hot spring baths) and sento (public baths) and so OMO Kansai has included a sento-style bath area for hotel guests. The area features heated baths and a dry sauna perfect for refreshing between trips.
