Carlson’s solid India growth

Barlow-Simon EDITED

At this week’s HIFI (Hotel Investment Forum India) Conference in Delhi, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is championing its position as one of the leading and fastest-growing international hotel companies on the Sub Continent.

The move comes following a strong year of rapid development for the company, which signed 16 new deals and opened five properties. On the back of that, Carlson Rezidor remains the number one international hotel operator in the market by number of hotels and the company begins 2014 with 65 hotels in operation and 36 under development in India.

“We have established our leadership in this market over the last 15 years,” said Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group’s President – Asia-Pacific, Simon C. Barlow.

“By focusing on building strategic partnerships with hotel owners, we have accelerated our growth to deliver a record number of hotel signings in 2013.

“Our sustained growth in India will ensure our continued leadership in this important market,” he said.

Carlson Rezidor can also expect further injections of new hotels as a result of its partnership with Bestech Hospitalities Pvt Ltd (Bestech). As part of their agreement, six hotel management agreements have already been executed in 2013 alone. From now to 2024, the partnership will deliver an additional 43 new generation Park Inn by Radisson hotels in north and central India, which will provide an added boost to Carlson Rezidor’s portfolio growth. Carlson Rezidor is currently also in the process of seeking a second strategic partnership to leverage multi-platform growth in India.

At the same time, India is also the focal point for the roll-out of the next generation Country Inns and Suites By Carlson brand. This growth is managed through Country Development and Management Services Private Limited (CDMS); a joint venture between Carlson and Chanakya Hotels Private Limited, which has successfully pioneered the brand in India.

“Our partnerships have put us on a path of phenomenal growth and we will continue to invest in our relationships with hotel owners and in our people to ensure that we leverage our momentum and capture the emerging opportunities in this market,” Barlow said.

“We have in place a strong India team comprising 50 local talents who have excellent local networks and an in-depth understanding of the operating environment to take us to the next stage of growth.

“I am confident the progress we have made over the last three years will allow us to further broaden our footprint in India,” he said.

Carlson Rezidor’s team in India is led by Raj Rana, chief executive officer of Carlson Hotels (South Asia) Private Limited, and K.B. Kachru, chairman and the founder of Carlson Rezidor’s hotel business in India. Together, they have more than 40 years of hospitality experience.
