he brand new addition to Chennai’s grand five star hotels is Sheraton Grand Chennai Resort & Spa, located at Vadanamelli, on the beaming East Coast Road of Chennai with a pristine view of the Bay of Bengal. The beachfront resort, spread across 10 acres of land, is a premium classic brand of Marriott International.
The core inspiration for the design and decor of the hotel is derived from the four brand pillars, namely, sun, sand, sea and its location-south india. The resort’s architecture pays homage to the expansive ocean, the fresh beauty of surrounding natural elements and beautifully manicured gardens that encircle the property.

Local materials draw on regional fundamentals like copper and cane, which are infused in the furniture design aspects. aptly chosen artefacts and detailed final touches add to the decor.
