To start planning your vacation to The Oberoi Grand
The Oberoi Grand is located in the heart of Calcutta, the City of Joy. Its period features and tranquillity offer the perfect respite from the pace of Calcutta. The Oberoi Grand has an effortless fusion of classical Victorian and traditional Indian style.
The Oberoi Grand is over a century old with its neo-classical facade and grand pillared entrance representing a fusion of classical Victorian and traditional Indian architectural styles which reflect the city’s colonial history. It is the foremost hotel in Calcutta, offering a central location whilst being an oasis from the hustle and bustle of fast moving Calcutta.
The Oberoi's 204 rooms and suites offer tasteful luxury with period charm, combining modern amenities with antique furniture. Suites feature king size four poster beds, well-appointed bathrooms with Ayurvedic toiletries and balconies overlooking the courtyard, garden or pool.
The Grand has two restaurants serving sumptuous international and Thai cuisines and a bar. The spa at the Grand offers the highest levels of relaxation and rejuvenation whether you are beginning or ending your time in the subcontinent in Calcutta. To many, the highlight of the Grand is its tranquil inner courtyard containing the swimming pool, where guests can enjoy cocktails almost unaware that Calcutta exists beyond this inner sanctum.

The Oberoi Grand has one of the best locations in Calcutta. It surrounds a central courtyard which is a great place to sit and have a cocktail, almost unaware the bustle of Calcutta is about 30 meters away. Walk through the lobby and out into the magic which is Calcutta. For me, it's the only place to stay in the city.
