Who is vikram chatwal dating
This past June, an invitation was sent by e-mail, beckoning a select group of desirable New Yorkers to frolic by the glass-bottomed swimming pool—a basin flanked by 4,800 square feet of imported sand and private cabanas—at Dream Downtown, a sceney hotel that’s perhaps better known as a nightlife destination than a place to book a room.
The invite came from the hotel’s owner, the model-dating, movie-producing international party fixture Vikram Chatwal, the 42-year-old socialite Sikh whose love life and legal woes have made New York tabloid headlines for years.
But according to Chatwal, after a recent year of rehabilitation his focus is on his family and his business and making it known that these days he’s anything but a playboy.
“A turning point for me was when I had my daughter,” Chatwal, clear-eyed, collected and clutching a venti Starbucks cup, explains from across a table at a private Manhattan club.

Considering she was seen making out with a mystery man in public, and the 39-year-old multimillionaire hotelier had been spotted at with Li Lo at his New York City apartment partying until 5 a.m., it seems very possible.
That’s quite a departure for the guy known for his insatiable appetite for nightlife, torrid romances with catwalk icons—Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen haven’t been immune to his charms—and, more recently, an arrest at a Florida airport when he was reportedly discovered carrying heroin, cocaine and prescription pills hidden, in part, down his pants.
“I was a raging individual for a long while, but that love I have for my daughter made me prioritize my life in certain ways.” Despite his colorful past, plenty of which occurred after the birth of his child, Chatwal does indeed seem to have turned a corner.
He’s the founder of the lifestyle division at the family-run Hampshire Hotels, and his stable of hotels—including branches of Dream in New York, Miami, India and Thailand, as well as a stake in Manhattan’s iconic Plaza Hotel—are popular and, Chatwal says, profitable.
Born in Ethiopia to Indian parents, Chatwal moved in 1982 to New York City, where his father, Sant Singh Chatwal, would go on to own the series of restaurants (including high-end Indian chain Bombay Palace and Beefsteak Charlie’s) and hotels that allowed him to provide the best for Vikram and his brother, Vivek.
The family lived on the Upper East Side—“comfortable and luxurious,” is how he has described his childhood—and Vikram attended the United Nations International School before heading to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market.We continue to identify technical compliance solutions that will provide all readers with our award-winning journalism."There's no romance between the two of them."
