More Hotel Options in Five Years for Travellers Flying to India

India will be able to offer much more options in terms of hotels in the coming few years.

India’s Wadhawan Group has jumped on what seems an already crowded but highly crucial bandwagon that is going full steam ahead to resurrect India’s weak hospitality infrastructure!

Wadhawan Group, a Mumbai-based entity, has announced to set up nine hotels in India in next five years. All these hotels will be in four and five-star segments, serving luxury seekers who travel on their business tour or holiday break.

As per a report in a major Indian daily, the group has joined hands with hospitality chain Minor International to manage its hotels. Minor International operates more than 1,000 restaurants and 30 hotels worldwide.

As per the source, the first of its two hotels, in Mysore and Pune, will begin operations in the next two quarters. Other hotels will be set up in Wayanad in Kerala, Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh and Udaipur in Rajasthan. A hotel will also come up in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Each of these cities is a popular tourist destination of India and is visited by hordes of travellers who book flights to India every year.

India has emerged a hot tourist destination with many wanting to explore its many realms. There are some 15 companies planning to establish 600-odd hotels in India in the coming future. These hotels will not only include lavish properties but also comprise budget hotels serving those with cheap tickets flights to India.

The figures may be encouraging however the country’s current hotel scene is not very encouraging. Reports indicate that Shanghai, the second biggest city in China, alone boasts better figures than the whole Indian market taken together in terms of availability of organised rooms.
