The Oberoi Grand, Calcutta

The Oberoi Grand

The Oberoi Grand has been standing proudly in central Calcutta since the late 19th century, and over the years has hosted world leaders and grand parties, giving it an air of importance to match its impressive exterior. The first of Oberoi’s hotels, it still maintains its high quality of accommodation and amenities. Indulge yourself in the luxurious spa, relax on your balcony and end a busy day of exploring with a refreshing tipple in the hotel’s Chowringhee Bar.
