As befitting a great duchess of the colonial period, The Oberoi Grand has a most distinguished façade, an impeccable reputation for correctness in all things and a bearing that is both stately and graceful. Indeed, The Grand Dame still welcomes heads of state, visiting and international celebrities. You only have to wander into The Oberoi Grand’s opulent ballroom – the largest of its kind in Kolkata – to imagine yourself in the midst of a glittering state occasion, surrounded by uniformed generals, diplomats and a swirl of immaculately dressed dancers.

A definite must-stay when you visit Kolkata on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India. Especially as the Grand Dame also welcomes you with all the most modern amenities, and an enviable setting in the heart of the city’s business district.
