Pioneer Urban Land and Infrastructure Ltd Selects Carlson's Regent Brand
for its Hotel and Residence Development in Gurgaon, India

NEW DELHI, INDIA – January 11, 2010 – Carlson Hotels Worldwide, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, today announced plans to expand its luxury Regent brand into India with the opening of The Regent Gurgaon in late 2013. 

The Regent Gurgaon is the latest expansion of the Regent brand globally with several other properties currently under development – The Regent Bangkok, The Regent Doha, The Regent Dubrovnik, The Regent Emirates Pearl, Abu Dhabi, The Regent Kuala Lumpur, The Regent Maldives, The Regent Manila Bay, The Regent Palmas Del Mar Puerto Rico, and The Regent Phuket Cape Panwa, all scheduled to open within the next three years. 

“The Regent brand has strong historical roots in Asia. With this new property, Regent will now have a total of nine properties in the region, including three in operation, and six contracted projects,” said Hubert Joly, president and CEO of Carlson. 

Gurgaon is one of New Delhi’s four major satellite cities. The Regent Gurgaon, along with The Regent Residences is being developed by Pioneer Urban Land and Infrastructure Ltd, one of Gurgaon’s largest real estate developers. Both the hotel and residences will be part of a 75 acre mixed-use development called ‘Pioneer Park’ under the ‘New Gurgaon Masterplan 2021’ which includes the planned development of over 33,000 hectares of land into residential, commercial and retail facilities.

“While Gurgaon is fast becoming the regional headquarters for many multinational companies and emerging as a technology centre, the city still has a limited supply of internationally branded hotels,” said Manish Periwal, chairman and managing director, Pioneer Urban Land and Infrastructure Ltd. “Ideally located in the main district, and linking directly to the express highway NH8 which connects Gurgaon to New Delhi and the Indira Gandhi International Airport, this luxury hotel will address the needs of the increasing number of business and leisure travellers arriving in the city.”

Located at an up and coming area fringing the heart of commercial Gurgaon in Sectors 61 and 62, The Regent Gurgaon, with its spectacular design and premium facilities, will set the standard in luxury accommodation. The hotel will feature 160 luxurious guestrooms and suites lavishly designed to emphasize the contemporary elegance of the hotel.

The property will also include a spa sanctuary for guests to enjoy therapeutic and relaxing treatments. Other hotel amenities include an intimate and sophisticated restaurant featuring a wide range of high quality wines and cigars, state-of-the-art ballroom and boardrooms, and the Regent Bar, an ideal setting for a casual soiree, high tea or evening cocktails.
