The nearest airport is Bengaluru International Airport. The distance from the airport to the hotel is about 35km and it takes about 1 hour to travel from the airport to the hotel.


Post-paid taxi facilities:BIAL has selected MERU and EASYCAB to provide basic taxi services. The taxi operators will have basic AC cars, all equipped with tracking devices to ensure safety and transparency. Both operators have professional call centres. Hence, Guests coming to the airport can call the cab call centres and a cab will pick them up and drop them at the airport. For Guests arriving at the airport, there is a dedicated taxi holding area where the Guest can get a cab. The post paid taxi facility will be available on meter charges @ Rs.15/- per km (subject to Govt regulation). These are by far the best and most convenient mode of transport from the airport. It may cost you approximately Rs. 600 to get to Bangalore’s CBD.

Pre-paid facilities:Hertz and Akbar Travels will provide pre paid Limousine and car rental facilities. Hertz will launch a fleet of Mercedes – C and E class cars and will expand the fleet depending on the demand and business objectives. Limousine services will be available at the limo service counters at the terminal building arrival and based on special tariffs applicable for BIAL

Another alternative is to arrange transportation through the hotel (see contact information above) – this is more expensive but a safe and reliable method of travelling between the hotel and the airport.
