Originally opened in 2007, the iconic Floatel has now been acquired by Hotel Polo Towers Group and rechristened as Polo Floatel. The newly refurbished Polo Floatel delivers the illustrious Polo Towers experience of inspired hospitality. The upscale, full-service hotel features luxurious rooms, world class amenities and an international dining experience while paying homage to the hotel’s unique maritime style. Located atop a boat in the heart of the City of Joy, flanked by Howrah Bridge and the beautiful Vidyasagar Setu, the hotel is designed to provide a tranquil experience of sojourning on the banks of the holy Hooghly River. This riverfront property adds its own history to the cultural capital and brings the destination's magic into the hotel experience.


The eco-friendly hotel showcases re-imagined design elements to provide meaningful connection to local culture while enhancing the facilities for an elevated guest experience. This exquisitely restored and refurbished, 58-key floating hotel on the holy Ganges offers a bird's-eye view of the river from every vantage point. The hotel’s all day multi-cuisine restaurant, The Bridge - Bistro Bar, offers a vast selection of modern and regionally inspired delicacies along with innovative cocktails and spectacular city views. The thoughtfully curated menu is based on three pillars – the Hotel Polo Towers Group`s rich North East heritage, old Calcutta favorites and the chef’s modern take on comfort food.

The tastefully designed banqueting and conferencing spaces with independent access and breakaway rooms, is perfectly suited for corporate events and social gatherings. The hotel also boasts of impeccable lawns and open decks with incredible views, making it an ideal venue for weddings and intimate celebrations.

“We are delighted to be re-launching the iconic Floatel  which has been revamped with love and imagination to become the definitive address for style seekers and the swish set. The all new re-imagined Polo Floatel preserves its maritime legacy and a sense of fun whilst providing the Polo Towers Experience that we are known for” says Mr Deval Tibrewalla, CEO, Hotel Polo Towers Group. He further added “We look forward to providing an immersive experience to our guests in Kolkata, both at The Bridge – Bistro Bar and through our bespoke leisure experiences. The Bistro, complete with extraordinary views of the serene river, nestled between the iconic Howrah Bridge and Vidyasagar Setu offers a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options along with dishes inspired by our North-Eastern heritage.”

The boutique hotel offers a gamut of bespoke experiences like sunrise and sunset boat rides on the breezy Ganges along with tea and snacks on-board, guided walking tours showcasing the rich  history and culture of Calcutta  and romantic candle light dinners with panoramic views of the cityscape. The hotel is re-imagined to incorporate the essence of British Calcutta and present Kolkata, introducing a sophisticated ambience for modern travelers & savvy locals. The hotel seeks to restore the vibrancy of the old town by providing engaging experiences for guests. The varied culinary and leisure experiences the hotel has on offer, makes it the perfect weekend getaway for not only  those traveling but also for local guests looking for short breaks in the comfort of their own city. Polo Floatel embodies the spirit of quintessential Bengal and is the ideal destination for travelers on a quest for peace and rejuvenation.
