More Luxury Hotels in India to be Set Up

India is on the radar of most hospitality groups. Be it luxury hotel chains or budget hotel groups, everyone is on their way to India to ensure they have a slice of the country’s burgeoning travel and tourism pie!

The latest to jump on the bandwagon is the Thai hospitality group, Lebua Hotels & Resorts. The group has a property in India’s capital city, Delhi and is now planning to establish one more in Goa. Both Delhi and Goa are top notch holiday destinations and remain two of the biggest lures that tempt tourists to book flights to India. Delhi is also a major business hub and by setting up a luxury property in the city, Lebua Hotels & Resorts has ensured that corporate travellers will now have one more on their list when it comes to choosing a hotel in Delhi!

While the partially-opened Lebua Delhi will have the highest number of rooms, 400, for Lebua worldwide, the group’s Goan property will feature 14 rooms and 40 villas. Lebua Delhi will be formally launched in September and the Goan property is most likely to open its doors to guests in May 2013.

The company claims that one of Lebua Delhi’s restaurant would be the world’s most expensive Indian restaurant! Well, here is something that would perhaps put off most budget travellers who taking cheap flights to India! But then again the group’s lavish properties were never meant for the shoe-string travellers booking airline tickets to India!

Reports doing rounds in Indian media suggest that Lebua Hotels & Resorts is also scouting for land to build its third property in India, which is expected to come up in Cochin, another popular tour destination.
