Fairmont Hotels & Resorts to Debut in India with the
255-room Fairmont Jaipur to Open in August 2012

TORONTO, July 25, 2012 – Continuing to grow worldwide, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is eagerly anticipating the opening of a new luxury hotel: Fairmont Jaipur in India. The hotel is set to open its doors on August 9, 2012, marking Fairmont’s entry into India.  The hotel is ideally situated within India’s “Golden Triangle”, a geographic region that is home to dazzling palaces, timeless forts and notable landmarks like the Taj Mahal.

Created from the ground up, the overarching design influence of the property pays tribute to the great Mughal dynasty, and is a sensitive re-imaging of the traditional Mughal palace. With 255 guestrooms and suites including Fairmont Gold, the rooms reflect a modern, sophisticated style alongside the rich, cultural characteristics of the famed “Pink City” of Jaipur. A focal point of each guestroom is the spacious bathroom, which is entered through glazed sliding door panels, each featuring a traditional ornately patterned screen and boast striking floors which have a complex geometrical pattern of stars and diamonds.

As the Mughals were known for extravagant feasts, the hotel features a number of restaurants and bars, including Zarin (meaning Golden), the Indian specialty restaurant which highlights classical dishes prepared using traditional techniques and spices yet a modern flare. Zoya, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, is where guests can enjoy international cuisine in one of five distinct seating areas, including a Mughal tent. Fairmont Jaipur’s tea lounge, Anjum, brings a new dimension to the art of tea tasting by offering a selection of single origin first flush leaf teas of both black and white varieties, as well as teas infused with herbs such as basil, lemongrass and mint grown on site. As well, Fairmont’s long standing tradition of afternoon teas has been given a local twist with a live Masala Chai station offering the quintessential Adrak Wali Cha’ – the Indian adaptation of ginger-infused tea. Aza is the hotel’s regency style library bar which features an outstanding collection of fine wines, bespoke cocktails and malt whisky, showcased at a whisky appreciation station complete with aged and rare malt whiskies of the world. For the cigar connoisseurs, the Cigar Diwan is a classic smoking room with a rich, masculine feel, artistically decorated with hand-painted artwork. Fairmont Jaipur will also offer 5,500 square meters (60,000 square feet) of meeting space while a 1,300 square meter (14,000 square foot) Willow Stream Spa will debut in the coming months.

Key to a stay at any Fairmont property worldwide is enriching experiences that embody the destination. Fairmont Jaipur offers tea in the gardens, traditional entertainment and dancing in the courtyard, authentic spa treatments and falconry for the enjoyment of guests. A city rich in historical landmarks, guests can visit the Amber and Jaigarh Forts and the Jantar Mantar observatory in Jaipur. Local artisans specialize in captivating textiles, particularly rich, stamped fabrics, as well as jewellery. The adventurous may enjoy elephant rides, or taking in a game of elephant polo.
