Introducing a new level of luxury to Surat, the reimagined, upscale-luxury hotel captivates both business and leisure guests offering a more modern and innovative travel experience.
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Greenville-based and award winning Auro Hotels proudly announced the debut of its second international hotel with the highly anticipated opening of the Surat Marriott Hotel in Surat, Gujarat, India.
The newly transformed Surat Marriott Hotel is a unique and exemplary, upscale-luxury hotel offering guests the opportunity to step outside the ordinary into a more modern and innovative travel experience. Over 30 years ago, Surat embraced this hotel with open arms as it became the first 5-star hotel in the state of Gujarat. Since then the hotel has become an integral part of the city’s business and social hub. The iconic hotel has been a preferred destination for celebratory occasions of generations of Suratis and the legacy still continues.
Featuring 209 innovative and thoughtfully designed guestrooms with stunning views of the city and Tapi River, each offers a wide variety of complimentary upscale amenities including recharging stations, high-speed wireless Internet, mini bar and in-room dining services. Business and leisure travelers enjoy the perfect blend of amenities including a 24-hour state of the art gym with fitness trainers, spa and salon, outdoor swimming oasis, business center and over 44,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space. The M-Club, designed for the sophisticated business traveler and exclusively made for the Marriott Bonvoy Elite members, helps guests recharge and refocus by offering the most premium complimentary services. Located in the heart of Surat, guests can experience the culture and local area within moments from the hotel including boutique shopping, dining, and nearby popular beaches.

We are also excited to work closely with Auro University’s Hospitality program to train our future generation for the industry.”
