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.
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.
Safety Details and International Standards

The shore and The Floatel is connected by a specially designed (internatially accredited and tested) gangway which get adjusted to the change in the water level at high and low tides.
The model followed for the Floatel is based on conceptual design of "Coastal Vessels" which are moored in various cities of Europe. None of the Coastals have self propulsion. Whereas European Floatels are moored in the sea, The Calcutta Foatel is moored in The River Hooghly.
