Great Hotels of the World announces new hotel opening in India

Great Hotels of the World (http://www.ghotw.com) are pleased to announce the opening of a brand new hotel – Syna Tiger Resort - on 17 October 2011, following a four-year development at a cost of approximately $1.8 million.

Syna Tiger Resort (www.ghotw.com/syna-tiger-resort) is a member of the Great Hotels of the World Luxury Collection. This luxury jungle resort is situated within the natural beauty of the wilderness, right on the edge of Bandhavgarh National Park in central India. Stretching over 437 square kilometres, the surrounding forest was once the hunting preserve of the Maharaja of Rewa, and renowned as the home of the Big Cats. The resort serves as the ideal base from which you can explore the territory of the Royal Bengal tiger.

The resort setting is picture perfect, with an azure plunge pool surrounded by fifteen exclusive luxury cottages and one signature tree-house, all complete with modern amenities, network connectivity, private walled gardens and a jacuzzi. Guests of the resort can expect a first-class combination of eco tourism joined with outstanding hospitality.

The resort offers a wealth of offerings including the Wildwood spa, which provides guests with a variety of holistic and indigenous treatments, state-of-the-art fitness centre, pool, a restaurant that serves international and local cuisine, and a bar. The real thrill of Bandhavgarh is the opportunity to see the big cats roam freely in the jungle. The Syna Tiger Resort provides special guided jeep and elephant safaris with experienced naturalists who aid in making trips more enriching. There are also various bird walks that guests can enjoy as well as separate cycling tracks.

Syna Tiger Resort also offers a naturally inspiring venue for corporate clients, featuring a fully equipped, modern day “tapovana” – an outdoor space for spiritual practice, used for holding effective training programmes. Syna Tiger also has facilities to host weddings and banquets. The resort prides itself on being eco-friendly by harvesting rainwater and recycling. The resort is also free of plastic and no chemical is allowed to seep back to the earth, via meticulous water treatment. By using local produce, employing local people and utilising locally relevant skills the resort keeps its carbon-footprint to a minimal level.

Arpan Dutta, chairman of Modus Vivendi Hospitality, says: ''This property is definitely one of the finest. Syna Tiger Resort will set an example for other resorts to follow. We aim to deliver the best of services with a rural touch and have a rural kitchen concept where guests are served authentic cuisine, cooked in a village style mud oven. Syna Tiger Resort will take tourists’ expectations to a deeper and higher level.''
