Its 130-plus rooms will be spread over sprawling 25 acres. “All the rooms have the luxury of space with a minimum size of 50 sq. mt each and comfortable sit-out courtyards,” the media release said.

Also on offer will be the formidable food and beverage repertoire of ITC Hotels, including the acclaimed Kebabs & Kurries restaurant.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Chadha said: “The growth story of ITC Hotels is driven by an asset-right strategy. Brand Mementos helps us deliver unique luxury stays across different destinations through collaborations with asset owners who choose ITC Hotels for its top-notch hospitality expertise.”

Derewala added: “These are exciting times as we see a pick-up in the leisure business. ITC’s prowess in food and beverage is well known and we see the value they bring to the hospitality business in driving and managing high-profile events. Partnering with the right brand and operator was of immense importance to us.”
