Country overview: More than 150 hotels in the pipeline across India [Infographic]

by | 11 May 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Our researchers have scanned the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database for upcoming hotel openings in India – and found no fewer than 155 schemes in the works.

India’s hotel market is looking promising with 155 projects and 23,546 keys under development, according to our figures. We take a closer look at the upcoming launches and highlight the ones to watch.

India’s hotel openings by year

On current evidence, 2021 is looking like it’ll be a busy year, with 61 hotels and 9,145 keys on the cards. 18 of them are already in the pre-opening phase. Next year is looking a bit slower, with 31 planned openings due to bring 4,320 new rooms.

For 2023, there are only 19 projects with 3,112 keys on the books right now. Then for 2024 and beyond, another 44 launches and 6,969 rooms have been pencilled in.

Of the 155 new hotels, 85 will be in the four-star category, while the remaining 70 are targeting the five-star market.

Top urban growth markets in India

The tech hub of Bengaluru will see the largest number of new properties open in the coming years – 14 new hotels with 2,983 keys are planned here.

By way of comparison, eight launches with 1,537 rooms have been earmarked for the historic city of Jaipur, known for its many ancient rose-coloured palaces, mansions and temples.

The megacity of Mumbai on India’s western coast, incidentally, will get six additional properties with 1,755 keys.

Key hotel brands expanding in India

Remarkably, three different hotel flags share top spot in our rankings of India’s most active brands, with 12 new hotels apiece – Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts and Vivanta by Taj.

In terms of room count, however, Radisson leads the way with 1,656 new rooms on its development slate. Holiday Inn will add 1,565 keys to its offering, while Vivanta will grow by 1,506 rooms.

Hotel projects in India to keep an eye on

MBD Zephyr Bengaluru will open in the city’s business suburb of Whitefield in Q2 2021. The palatial 301-unit property will offer both hotel rooms and serviced apartments, as well as several speciality restaurants, a spa and 24,000 sq ft of convention space.

Meanwhile, InterContinental Bengaluru Whitefield is another interesting opening in the same neighbourhood. Targeting a Q1 2022 debut, this 265-key scheme is located in the suburb’s bustling centre, where it’ll offer various dining options, banqueting facilities, meeting rooms and vast outdoor spaces – perfect for hosting large events like weddings.

And further north, The Ritz-Carlton Mumbai will soon offer 238 luxurious rooms overlooking the Arabian Sea. Here, guests will be able to enjoy an ocean-view bar, two specialty restaurants, a spa and other leisure facilities. Created by Tonychi Studio and KPF Architects, the hotel should prove more than capable of accommodating the high-profile events and society weddings that Mumbai’s famous for.
