The Glenburn Penthouse, Calcutta

A sophisticated boutique hotel with a fabulous central location, the recently opened Glenburn Penthouse enjoys 360-degree views from its position at the top of a shiny new office building.

One of the city’s finest boutique offerings, The Glenburn Penthouse oozes style and grace. A tranquil space away from the bustling streets, the hotel has an understated yet sophisticated style complemented by traditional colonial décor, antiques and artwork. Each of the nine suites are light-filled and wonderfully spacious, boasting grand four-poster beds, original furniture and large marble bathrooms.

After a day of sightseeing you can retreat to the serene rooftop terrace where you can take a dip in the infinity pool and drink in the far-reaching views that surround you. A soothing treatment at the spa is another great way to relax, whilst a visit to the graceful dining room will present you with an array of delicious meals that are inspired by colonial, Bengali and Anglo-Indian cuisine as well as the city’s street food.
