Surat hotels are generally found along the Tapti River or in the commercial districts cradled by its lazy meander. This means a choice of staying at the heart of the city bustle or escaping to watery views and river breezes. Either way, this commercial hub for everything from silver and diamonds to silk and printing is a true slice of Western India. Sights not to miss include 16th-century Surat Castle, the New Textile Market and the colonial-era British, Dutch and Armenian cemeteries. See them all when you stay at one of these Surat hotels, bookable on Culture Trip.

In the commercial area between two bends in the meandering Tapti River, the Bellevue distinguishes itself from other Surat hotels with its attentive service. Whether you want a fried egg for breakfast or require local info from the tie-wearing receptionists, all staff are happy to help. The ensuite rooms are accustomed to hosting commercial travellers, given the area’s many textile markets and diamond hubs, and offer essentials such as king-size beds, flat-screen TVs and fridges.

2. Courtyard by Marriott Surat, for stylish decor

Courtyard by Marriott hotels are trustworthy pads for families and frequent travellers, and Surat’s branch of the chain is no exception. The luxury hotel delivers a bouquet of amenities with a flourish of contemporary style – you’ll note the turquoise and white seating on Charcoal barbecue restaurant’s pool terrace. Attractive touches also abound with Café Coco’s swirly carpet, the Bistro’s casual dining environment, the ceiling mobile dominating reception, and the poolside light installations – all making this a great spot to stay in style.

Gazing across the Tapti River, this five-star hotel is a well-equipped haven in Gujarat’s second-largest city.

There’s a choice of Indian, international and Asian restaurants – the latter complete with a Japanese teppanyaki grill counter – and accommodation ranging from deluxe rooms to signature suites.

4. Hotel Orange International, for a smooth stay
