Kolkata Gets A New Luxury Hotel Inspired By Bengal Renaissance

In the grandiose complex of Kolkata’s Swabhumi, IHCL SeleQtions has announced the opening of its property Raajkutir, that is an ode to the Great Renaissance of Bengal. The palatial hotel resembles a traditional Bengali Rajbari. Rajbaris were huge mansions or palaces owned by aristrocrats and the wealthy strata of people in ancient Bengal. Every Rajbari used to have a spacious courtyard known as the ‘uthon’. Raajkutir also has a spacious uthon, in the heart of the spectacular buildings that blend local and colonial architectures. The complex is the slice of royalty that will let you experience luxury at its best.
