Through Jaypee Hotels, Six Senses Spa made its entry into the Indian market recently. What business potential does it hold for you?
India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and as such it creates attractive opportunities for investment and development for any international brand. Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort is our most luxurious property. We wanted to create an additional interesting proposition: integrating a luxury resort, a holistic spa, private residences, a golf course, sports complex and other facilities. We are very happy with this partnership as it further enhances our guests’ experience at this destination apart from increasing business opportunities.

Jaypee Group developed the Agra expressway, how do you foresee the growth of your hotels enroute Agra and Noida, where you have landmark properties?
International travellers visiting India always have a desire to visit the Taj Mahal and, with the opening of the Yamuna expressway, the ease is much appreciated. So is the demand for stay options. We have hotels at prime locations at both the ends –– Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort in Greater Noida and Jaypee Palace Hotel and Convention Centre in Agra. Through the rigorous study of the travel pattern of the discerning inbound and outbound tourists visiting Delhi and other destinations, special packages for Greater Noida properties have been designed.
Today, corporate clients prefer to break away from closed offices and opt for off-sites to strategise and churn out ideas. This whole connectivity promises to deliver a splendid package to hold business meetings along with a leisure trip to one of the wonders of the world, thus, a sudden increase in MICE. So, we have an advantageous positioning of Greater Noida being the nodal point between the two charming destinations –– Agra and New Delhi which automatically brings opportunities for hotels to tap the extensive potential of the region. A great combination of scenic relief, a smooth drive, a delightful stay experience with world class ambience and gastronomic delights awaits guests.
