Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced the signing of Le Méridien Dhaka, slated to open in July 2013. Owned by Best Holdings Limited, the 304 room hotel will be located close to Dhaka International Airport with easy access to the city’s central business district
Le Méridien Dhaka will span between the eighth and fifteenth floors of a new mixed use development and offer guests breathtaking views of Dhaka from the building’s rooftop. Four food and beverage venues, including an all-day dining restaurant and specialty restaurant and bar, will offer distinctive culinary experiences for both guests and locals alike. The hotel will also house a 2,800 square-foot fitness center fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and a 2,400 square-foot spa.
Le Méridien Dhaka , designed with a spectacular 125 foot outer façade, will showcase the signature ‘Le Méridien Hub,’ an innovative concept that re-interprets the traditional hotel lobby into a social gathering place for creative minds to converse, debate and exchange. Located on the ground floor near the main hotel entrance, the Hub at Le Méridien Dhaka will further build on the brand’s award-winning Arrival experience and coffee culture, curated by Le Méridien’s Cultural Curator Jérôme Sans.
Le Méridien Arrival consists of four elements: large-scale artwork in high impact areas to reset the mind and stimulate dialogue and curiosity; the sensory experience, illustrated through Le Méridien signature scent, sound and use of light, creating aunique and distinctive atmosphere; UNLOCK ART™ programme, featuring an artist designed keycard collection that not only offers access to the guestroom but also to Le Méridien affiliated contemporary cultural centers in the city; and a 24-hour soundtrack curated by Sans.
