Park Kolkata opened in 1967, the same year that the Beatles came to India to learn transcendental meditation. Today the 149-room hotel has a completely new look thanks to the hands on involvement of design gurus Conran & Partners and the overarching brilliance and high-minded design aesthetic of Park Hotels’ Chairperson Priya Paul. The current interiors are influenced by Indian psychedelia from the 1960s and Hindu meditation. Against a dramatic background of black and white, colors pop and inspire, and a distinct modern-colonial style blends seamlessly with polished marble and light wood. Further homage to the region's rich culture is expressed by Bengali features, such as the kantha embroidery panels, and by the conversion of public spaces into exhibition areas. Here, works by top Indian artists welcome guests, as do locally crafted sculptures, terracotta, and traditional murals, making Park Kolkata a home to many creative masters and inspired guests alike.

A contemporary concept here weaves in past and present traditions of the Bengal region. Elegant modern-colonial spaces blend seamlessly with polished highlights of marble and light wood. Bengali features, such as the embroidery panels, called Kantha, are a distinctive feature throughout the hotel and its 149 guestrooms. The embroidery panels repeat their perpendicular pattern on bedspreads and bed frames; they are even expressed in the polished marble floors. Neat details, such as a chaise lounge that converts to a coffee table, niche lighting with custom-designed fabric, and accents of the chakra (wheel) spectrum all showcase the hotel’s wealth of Indian design.
Prakash Mankar & Associates, Made Wijaya, and Carl Ettensperger
The perfect example of an eclectic mix, the Park Kolkata offers up a blend of styles and interiors, each part of a renovation done by a different team of architects over time. In 2000, architects Prakash Mankar & Associates, Made Wijaya, and Carl Ettensperger gave the hotel its current contemporary spice. The concept weaves in past and present traditions of the Bengal region, including embroidery patterns through the hotel, while also adding in sleek and artful materials such as wood and polished marble to round out a design that has many influences but comes together seamlessly—as if part of one great, inspired whole.
Conran & Partners
Blending the beat of stylistic footprints left throughout its history with an artistic contemporary heart, Park Kolkata is alive with thoughtful, challenging ideas—to wit: purple couches that sit like ellipses besides broad silver pillars beneath a room with ceiling lights that twinkle like stars.
