Amidst the hustle-bustle of the capital, Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan Hotel – a luxury hotel brand under the family of Marriott International, is a well-recognized name that serves business purposes and leisure travellers alike.
Located in the highly commercial and developed area of Gulshan, the hotel is easily accessible from the airport and around the city and has been serving its guests with exciting experiences since December 2019.The Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan Hotel takes the guest right away into a different world with the first step into the grand lobby with the light ambience created with lighting and further enhanced by the use of a mirror in the ceiling, which gives the feeling of freedom and infinity. The interior of the lobby portrays the image of Bangladesh in its detail. For instance, bright red, lotus-shaped sofas, and subtle green hues are references to the lush greenery of our beautiful country. Not to mention, the highlighted Royal Bengal Tiger displayed with pride.
The interior features macramé textiles, made by local craftsmen and special threadwork techniques, with elegant Jamdani work adorning the headboards while the lovely lotus-pattern carpets cover the floors. Moreover, subtle references, such as a ceramic frog hinting at the monsoon, do not escape the interior detail. To complete the experience, the rooms provide a view of the bustling cityscape.
