Originally opened in 2007, the iconic Floatel has now been acquired by Hotel Polo Towers Group and rechristened as Polo Floatel.
The newly refurbished Polo Floatel delivers the illustrious Polo Towers experience of inspired hospitality. The upscale, full-service hotel features luxurious rooms, world class amenities and an international dining experience while paying homage to the hotel’s unique maritime style.
Located atop a boat in the heart of the City of Joy, flanked by Howrah Bridge and the beautiful Vidyasagar Setu, the hotel is designed to provide a tranquil experience of sojourning on the banks of the holy Hooghly River.
The eco-friendly hotel showcases re-imagined design elements to provide meaningful connection to local culture while enhancing the facilities for an elevated guest experience.
This exquisitely restored and refurbished, 58-key floating hotel on the holy Ganges offers a bird's-eye view of the river from every vantage point. The hotel’s all day multi-cuisine restaurant, The Bridge - Bistro Bar, offers a vast selection of modern and regionally inspired delicacies along with innovative cocktails and spectacular city views. The thoughtfully curated menu is based on three pillars – the Hotel Polo Towers Group`s rich North East heritage, old Calcutta favorites and the chef’s modern take on comfort food.
“We are delighted to be re-launching the iconic Floatel which has been revamped with love and imagination to become the definitive address for style seekers and the swish set. The all new re-imagined Polo Floatel preserves its maritime legacy and a sense of fun whilst providing the Polo Towers Experience that we are known for,” said Deval Tibrewalla, CEO, Hotel Polo Towers Group.
The boutique hotel offers a gamut of bespoke experiences like sunrise and sunset boat rides on the breezy Ganges along with tea and snacks on-board, guided walking tours showcasing the rich history and culture of Calcutta and romantic candle light dinners with panoramic views of the cityscape.
