Brac is known for creating change. They have created jobs for millions, helping many take a leap of faith and succeed in reaching the pinnacle of success. After addressing the issue of education, banking, health, household essentials and much more, Brac has tapped the field of hospitality.
Their resorts at Rajendrapur and Savar are well known to many as an escape option from the chaos of the city. In addition to their peaceful resorts outside Dhaka, Brac has built a small reiteration of the aforementioned, here in Dhaka.
Built at the centre of Dhaka, Mohakhali, Brac Inn stands tall as it overlooks the city. The guests visiting the hotel are reenergised upon arrival after a tedious journey to the city centre by the liveliness of the lounge. It is decorated such that visitors are reminded educated about the roots of the riverine country as a giant boat made from shal is beautifully decorated on the wall behind a glassed staircase.
The rooms (available from Tk 6974 to Tk 8718 per night) have been designed spaciously with wooden interiors and pleasant lighting which sets the mood right. They have equipped with home automation system which regulates the temperature according to the guests present in the room. Moreover, the multiple conference rooms and an auditorium cater to corporate officers and professors as they host their official seminars and workshops.
Brac Inn provides the guests with an interesting facility of decorating the rooftop according to their desire as it can cater small get-togethers and parties. Who would not enjoy a spell-binding view of the city lights and a wonderful dinner with their loved ones?
Moving slightly towards the north of Dhaka, Brac has yet another hotel, which is convenient for foreigners if they want to avoid a long and tiresome journey to Mohakhali and quickly check in at a posh hotel.
The Artisan sits on top of Uttara's Aarong. The hotel is a reflection of Brac Inn with cosy and spacious rooms along with big windows providing a wonderful view of the city. Guests love sitting by the window enjoying a cup of coffee as they relish the warmth of the sun and the wonderful view of the city which never sleeps. For interested guests, Deluxe Queen room is available at Tk 7600 per person while Suites are available at Tk 14400 per person.
When The Artisan was first inaugurated in 2012, it quickly soared in popularity for its restaurant Shororeetu. Serving dishes ranging from Continental, Oriental, Chinese, Thai to Indian, guests will not fall short of options. To add a cherry on top, a regular buffet is organised every night where guests throng in the many to enjoy a scrumptious meal with a splendid view.
For couples who look to get married this winter and are a fan of rooftops, consider giving The Artisan a look. The breezy rooftop can be the perfect setting for the Mehendi or Holud ceremony as you can set up canopies for people to sit and enjoy the scrumptious food, apply mehendi or even play instruments to celebrate the night.
On top of all that, one can decorate the rooftop with colourful lights and flowers as you recreate how you had dreamt the ceremony to look like.
Whether it is for an official meeting, a nice dinner with family and friends, or even a nice place for your foreign clients to stay in, Brac Inn and The Artisan are the best places to go to. They will cater to all your needs to perfection as you will leave with nothing but praise.
