Hilton to bring Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand to Jaipur

Hilton is expanding its luxury hotel portfolio in India with the signing of Jaipur’s first, and India’s third, property under the Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand.

Joining the recently signed Waldorf Astoria in Jaipur, Conrad Jaipur will become the second luxury Hilton hotel in the ‘Pink City’. The new luxury Conrad hotel is expected to open in 2027.

Growth across India

The 246-key Conrad Jaipur is to be developed in partnership with SunnyRaj Properties Pvt Ltd before its expected 2027 debut. This news follows the 2023 signing of India’s first Waldorf Astoria, which is also coming to Jaipur.

Alan Watts, President, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said: “India is an emerging force of travel demand and a priority growth market for Hilton. Rajasthan in particular boasts 75% of India’s heritage properties, and its capital city Jaipur has fast established itself as a choice destination for tourism and weddings.”

“We are proud to partner with SunnyRaj Properties Pvt Ltd, introduce our award-winning Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand to Jaipur, and capture the burgeoning demand of the wedding industry here. This latest signing underscores Hilton’s time-tested ability to deliver best-in-class owner returns, and we look forward to shaping the future of luxury hospitality here.”

Dino Michael, Global Head, Hilton Luxury Brands, commented: “On behalf of the entire Hilton team, we are delighted to be introducing the beloved Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand to Jaipur. As the second Hilton Luxury brand in the city, this exciting new development will further our team’s commitment to awaken our guests’ passion for sought-out destinations through highly immersive and authentic local experiences.”

New to Jaipur

Conrad Jaipur will now take shape in the city’s vibrant Mansarovar area, which is just a 15-minute drive from Jaipur International Airport. In this location, guests will have easy access to the new Jaipur Ring Road and Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, while also being close to cultural areas.

The hotel will draw inspiration from the city’s heritage for its sophisticated design. Here, guest rooms ranging from deluxe rooms to suites with private plunge pools will be joined by a wealth of amenities and over 1,800 sq m of event space, as well as landscaped gardens, for bespoke events such as weddings.

On the signing, Rajendra Mundra, Managing Director, SunnyRaj Properties Pvt Ltd, commented: “We are honoured to introduce the Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand to Jaipur, in collaboration with esteemed global hospitality brand, Hilton.”

“Jaipur holds a prominent place among tourists and wedding seekers, and we are confident that the addition of Conrad Jaipur will revolutionise and enhance hospitality experiences for discerning conscientious travellers.”

“Our ethos revolves around crafting spaces that reflect our values of excellence, innovation and customer delight. This partnership also signifies our debut in the luxury hospitality sector, highlighting our enthusiasm and dedication to fostering growth in this dynamic industry and contributing to Jaipur’s remarkable evolution in recent years.”

Hilton currently has 26 hotels in India, with another 19 in the pipeline and plans to triple this estate to 75 hotels in the coming years.
