While Roseate Hotels and Resorts’ Indian properties are currently green field projects, Ankur Bhatia, Executive Director, Bird Group tells Vinita Bhatia that the company plans to acquire properties in the future

2016 was a milestone year for Bird Group. Firstly, it launched its brand of hotels with Roseate Hotels & Resorts with a vision to position itself as a global collection of unique stay experiences. This was followed by the launch of Roseate House New Delhi, as a progressive yet relaxed urban hotel. The Group owns and operates four uber luxury properties in India and the UK, each having individual brand identities under Roseate Hotels and Resorts. In India, this includes The Roseate New Delhi luxury resort and Roseate House New Delhi, and in the UK, Roseate Hotels and Resorts operates The Royal Park — an English style country house boutique hotel — and The Forbury Roseate, a five-star property acquired by the group last Ankur-Sir--Photoyear in Reading. In India, Bird Group has three luxury and upscale properties coming up in Jaipur, Goa and Rishikesh. Ankur Bhatia, executive director, Bird Group revealed that by the end of 2017, it plans to launch The Roseate Ganges that will offer guests 16 luxury cottages along with Aheli Spa and an invigorating food menu.

ASPIRATIONAL VALUE

Talking about the projects that the company has in the pipeline, Bhatia believes that the increasing numbers of both domestic as well as international tourists have been very encouraging for the Indian travel and hospitality sector in recent years. Additionally, the demographics of the luxury traveller within the country are undeniably changing, with India’s millionaires having grown by 27 percent in 2016. Currently, Roseate Hotels and Resorts has 400 keys across four properties in India and the UK. “In India we have a total room inventory of 281 keys that includes those of The Roseate New Delhi and Roseate House New Delhi. The Roseate New Delhi, our flagship property, is an out-of-city, urban luxury resort with 65 keys and while the latter is a progressive yet relaxed hotel with 216 keys. With the current properties in the pipeline, our group plans to add 16 keys by the end of 2017 with The Roseate Ganges and additional high end rooms as and when required with more inventories in pipeline with Goa and Jaipur hotels,” Bhatia added. In India, at the moment, all properties owned and operated by Roseate Hotels and Resorts are green field projects. However, going forward, Bhatia stated that the company plans to acquire properties and is also exploring management prospects in India and international markets like Europe, Middle East besides the UK, where it already has an established presence.

ALL THINGS MICE

While talking about prevailing trends in the hospitality industry, Bhatia pointed out that there is reason to be optimistic since in recent times, the industry has been moving at a slow yet steady pace with almost 25% increase in domestic air traffic and 13% increase in foreign travellers in India. The industry has also witnessed the evolution of MICE and wedding segments with both becoming key contributors to hotel revenues. He expects that going forward, both of these are bound to grow in a big way and hold the key for revenues for most of the leading hospitality groups in the country. “In light of this growing trend, we believe that standalone properties have an edge as they can focus of developing big banqueting facilities. Smaller hotels can also get the upper hand on the same by ensuring they take their levels of service and quality to a cut above the rest,” Bhatia pointed out
