Plaza Premium Lounge has opened its first short stay Day Hotel at Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru, India.

The new Day Hotel is located in the Domestic Departures area and complements the two existing Plaza Premium Lounges in operation at Kempegowda Airport. The hotel offers transit passengers the flexibility of hourly rates and provides a range of other services suited to a shorter stay.

“Kempegowda International Airport is a reflection of the city and has a distinct passenger profile emerging from its reputation of being a business destination and start-up capital," said G V Sanjay Reddy, managing director for Bengaluru International Airport Limited. "Availability of a Day Hotel is of very high significance to this audience as they transit frequently for shorter durations. We are glad to have made this service a reality within the terminal building together with our partner, Plaza Premium Lounge Management Limited. This new service addition ranks high in establishing Bengaluru as a gateway to South India.”

The Day Hotel has 20 rooms and features complimentary Wi-Fi, desks, beds, storage space, international newspapers and magazines, TV channels and a shower. Designed by Australian architect, Mitchel Squires from MSA, the hotel combines soft and warm lighting with lush greenery and earthy timber.

"We are excited to continue our partnership with Bengaluru International Airport Limited to develop the facilities at Kempegowda International Airport, and we commend our partner for their vision for growth of the airport in Bengaluru," said Song Hoi-see, founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Lounge Management. "As the pioneer and industry leader, we are committed to providing Premium Airport Services by way of innovation, and we are confident that our new facility will add to the landscape and make the travel experience better for passengers flying to and from Bengaluru.”
