"Kipling", a suggestive name
With its colonial-style décor, its exotic woods and its spicy colour schemes, Hotel Kipling gives you a complete change of scenery. Providing guests with the dreamlike look and feel of a cosy and welcoming English colonial house, it is themed around travelling and discovering new worlds, in India and beyond.
Rudyard Kipling is one of key figures of the British colonisation era. Born in Bombay in 1865, this novelist and poet comes from a very cultured Anglo-Indian community. He earned his first stripes as a reporter, writing travel articles for Indian newspapers. His house features various souvenirs coming from the many countries he visited – photos, drawings, notebooks. He rose to fame as the author of six short stories telling the lives of Englishmen in India. Kipling draws inspiration from a variety of sources: the British Empire, his childhood in Bombay, his many travels to Asia, Japan, South Africa, Brazil and America. Some of his works are famous worldwide: “Jungle Book”, “Kim”, an adventure novel, “Captain Brave”, “Puck”. He is the first English writer to be awarded a Nobel Prize in literature, in 1907, and died in London in 1936.
The name Kipling brings guests a brand-new experience and emotions, making the hotel instantly recognizable and famous.
