The Floatel - Calcutta Outer View

The Hotel, a 4 star world class urban resort, floats on the River Hooghly only a hundred yards from the shore.The Hooghly river is a center-point of Indian history and the Floatel on the Hooghly today, between the two Howrah Bridges, brings back that history in its splendor, a time when Calcutta was in her finest glory.

The 61 room Floating Hotel is based on the concept of combining the best qualities of a luxury cruise ship with the beauty of a world class hotel permanently anchored in the City Centre of Calcutta. The land along the Floating Hotel consists of a promenade walkway by the river (the only one of its kind in the city), a beautifully landscaped garden, centrally air-conditioned reception areas, open air banquet halls (ideal for weddings, book-launches, music concerts or business parties), a promenade deck (ideal for parties, events, celebrations, meetings). All in all, The Floatel is the only City Centre Urban Resort in India. The Floatel is one of the properties of Manor Floatel Limited, Calcutta.

India's only Floating Hotel has been conceived, designed, constructed and built in Calcutta by Mr. Manab Pal, Managing Director, Manor Floatel Limited who worked tirelessly for many years and against huge odds to create an exquisite unique river-front environment in Calcutta because he strongly believed that a city as progressive in its ideas as Calcutta, needed a hotel as unique and spectacular as The Floatel.

A Floating Hotel is simply a hotel floating on water. The Floatel does not move, it does not sail down a river like a ship, it remains in its wonderful location on the edge of River Hooghly with spectacular views of the river and the charms of this old colonial cultural city. The Floatel in Calcutta is based on the concept of a Super Luxury Cruise Liner permanently anchored in the City Centre of Calcutta with a huge shore infrastructure to provide essential life-lines like fresh water, Electricity and sewerage disposal system. The hotel is also entirely environmentally friendly, using global standards of environmentally conscious tourism as the basis for all services. The Floating Hotel concept is a new development in offshore accommodation systems and used world- wide.


The Floatel, while located on the river-side, is in the heart of business activity in Calcutta. Talking about the City Skyline, the Floatel Rooms and the Restaurants overlook the colonial buildings like The Calcutta High Court which was the original Supreme Court of India founded in 1757, the Town Hall, Central Secretariat Building and the World famous Eden Gardens - a center of International Cricket.
