On July 25, 26 and 27, all roads led to the Ritz CarltonHotel, Bangalore, the exclusive venue of the three-day extravaganza – the Nitesh Estates and HDFC, Home Carnival. A signature event of the luxury Real Estate brand, Nitesh Estates, the event showcased Bangalore’s most desirable homes comprising premium condominiums and luxury villas starting from Rs 45 lakhs to Rs 20 crores across 20 properties. This was the first such event held by Nitesh Estates since its inception in 2004.
Nitesh Estates is responsible for many of South India’s most recognized developments.

Nitesh Estates also has to its credit a series of firsts – the first to win India’s largest corporate housing project (ITC Limited), one among the first few to attract FDI in real estate (Och Ziff and Citigroup are among its partners) and the distinction of bringing to India the Global Luxury Chain - The Ritz Carlton Hotel and setting up its first property in Bangalore on Residency road.
The Home Carnival event started with the ceremonial lighting of the lamp by Senior General Manager & Regional Business Head, Karnataka and Goa, HDFC, Mr. S N Nagendra; Executive Director and COO, Nitesh Estates, Mr. Ashwini Kumar; Executive Director, Nitesh Estates, Mr. Vaidyanathan L S; Vice President, Customer Service, Ms Prema Ram and EVP and Head, Sales and Marketing, Mr. Pradeep Narayan. This was followed by a welcome note by Mr. Ashwini Kumar and an introductory address by Mr. Nagendra to the IPCs and CPs gathered on the occasion. The Expo was then opened for general discussion.
The guests were also escorted through a special tour of the venue, the Ritz Carlton Hotel, a Nitesh Estates venture. A perfect sanctuary for the business and leisure traveler, the Hotel features 277 luxury rooms and plush suites, a spacious Ritz Carlton Club lounge, state- of- the- art conference venues, international dining options, internationally renowned salon and spa and more. Beautifully appointed accommodation with contemporary furnishings in an inviting ambience of sienna, orange and gold, the Ritz Carlton offers extraordinary comfort and modern amenities that make you wish you never had to leave.

The second and third days saw the event attended by VIPs from HDFC and Nitesh Estates, special Ritz Carlton guests and the general public.
A host of assured gifts awaited every booking, ranging from foreign holidays, gold coins, electronic gadgets and more.
Earlier, Nitesh Estates released an array of Print Ads to announce and promote the event, not to mention hoardings at Central Business District locations and radio jingles to reach out to the general public.
Says Ritesh Naik, a visitor to the event: “The range of residential homes to choose from was simply amazing, apart from easy home loan options from HDFC. In such a scenario, anyone would be tempted to book a Nitesh Home. And that is just what I did, though I had been putting off the decision for sometime now.”
The experience of owning a Nitesh Estates property and living the Nitesh lifestyle is unparalleled. One can sense the Nitesh Brand in every aspect of the properties that bear its name - from the design driven, cutting edge facades created in collaboration with the world’s best architects, to the flawless interiors, no detail is overlooked.
