Dhaka is poised to welcome four new five-star hotels in the next three years, catering to the growing demand for luxury accommodation in Bangladesh. Swissôtel Dhaka, a collaboration between Bengal Hotels and Resorts and Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, will boost the city’s reputation as an international event destination and attract high-profile guests. Additionally, Borak Real Estate Ltd (BREL) has partnered with Indian Hotels Company Ltd (IHCL) to operate Taj and Vivanta branded hotels in Gulshan.
These developments reflect Dhaka’s increasing capacity to provide upscale lodging, which will further grow with the upcoming third terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport. The investments in these hotels, totaling Tk 5,000 crore, will generate around 1,400 job opportunities. However, the sector faces a shortage of skilled professionals, necessitating the hiring of foreign experts. Despite challenges posed by the pandemic and ongoing crises, the hospitality industry in Bangladesh continues to thrive, driven by the country’s resilient economy.
