With the signing of a management agreement for Bhopal’s Noor-Us-Sabah Palace, Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced preparations for the debut of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in India. Noor-Us-Sabah Palace, one of Bhopal’s oldest and most sought-after hotels, will undergo major renovations before joining The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand as a 60-room historic hotel in 2025.
“At Hyatt, we are focused on thoughtful growth based on locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members, and customers, and introducing Hyatt’s brands across India has been a priority for us,” said Dhruva Rathore, vice president of development India & South West Asia, Hyatt. “Bhopal’s history and the Noor-Us-Sabah Palace’s rich Nawabi heritage make it a perfect addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio. This collection of independent hotels has seen great momentum across the globe, as each property invites guests to experience distinct culture and history, and we look forward to expanding The Unbound Collection by Hyatt footprint throughout the sub-continent.”
For tourists seeking a classy yet authentic experience, Noor-Us-Sabah Palace will provide cultural experiences. The hotel, which spans 18 acres, was established as a royal home in the 1920s by Bhopal’s former monarch, Begum Sultan Jehan, and was later turned into a hotel in 1998. The hotel’s interior design will bring to life the history and heritage of the Nawab’s regal house, and its fabled past will be harnessed to create unique and genuine experiences.
In addition to catering to luxury business and leisure tourists, the hotel will provide a distinctive and unique site for weddings and gatherings. The hotel, which is currently located in one of Bhopal’s most wealthy areas, commands a magnificent view of the Upper Lake, one of the country’s largest manmade lakes. The royal architecture of the hotel, along with the tradition of Bhopal’s Nawabi culture and the hotel’s gorgeous setting, provides guests with an unparalleled experience.
The Unbound Collection by the Hyatt brand is a collection of truly distinctive properties, all with a different story to tell. Inspiring guests to discover new places with rich history, a fascinating past, or a distinct sense of place, each property embodies the uniqueness of its location.
