DS Group is all set to open its new property in Kolkata, reveals Nikhil Vahi, Senior VP, Hospitality Operations & Development, DS Group.
A regular participant at the Great Indian Travel Bazaar (GITB), Nikhil Vahi was happy with the turnout at the latest edition of the event in Jaipur. “We have been participating in GITB for a couple of years now. It is our fourth year and it’s always been beneficial. We had FTO’s visiting us and our schedules were fully packed. I hope this transcends into business as well,” he said.
Giving a low-down on their properties, Vahi informed, “We are exhibiting our four hotels, namely our boutique brand in Jim Corbett Park–Namah, Manu Maharani in Nainital and also Crown Plaza, Jaipur, as well as the Radisson in Guwahati. Our 5th hotel is under project stage, which is at Kolkata airport, and we will be adding it to our exhibiting list very soon.”
He believes that technology is the need of the hour today, right from the conceptual stage of a hotel, till the execution, as well as the day to day running of a property. “Technology is very fast paced and one has to look at forecasting and what will be trending in the future. I believe that one should be as close to technology as they can,” he claimed.
