The InterContinental Hotel Dhaka will reopen from February 2018.


The former Sheraton and Ruposhi Bangla hotel will finally reopen for guests as the InterContinental Hotel Dhaka from February 2018, boasting the city’s “most comprehensive and largest facility to host events”.
InterContinental Hotel General Manager James P McDonald told that all the plumbing works and around 90% of the package civil work, façade and glazing are now complete, and that the project is currently in line with original cost estimates of $63m.
“Keeping in mind all the economic factors while investing in this renovation project there is no doubt that it will be a highly profitable venture,” he said.
“Other new entrants into the market have invested nearly $100m and are making a very good amount of revenue. I think they are having good returns.”
McDonald said the new Project Management Consultant (PMC) has now taken over the responsibilities of the project.
“We are expecting they will be able to deliver the project by the end of October 2017 and hand over to the operator, InterContinental, who will then commence their activities alongside testing, simulation and commissioning,” he said.
“To complete all the process, it will take three more months. Then, we will be able to launch the operation formally in February next year,” said McDonald.
