Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) has revealed plans for two new hotels in close proximity to the famed Statue of Unity in Kevadia, within the western Indian state of Gujarat.

The greenfield project, in agreement with Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL), is slated to open in 2025.

Gujarat growth

The 125-room Vivanta and the 150-room Ginger hotels will offer a variety of dining and wellness facilities across both hotels. In addition, the Vivanta hotel will feature conference facilities to cater to business travellers.

With the addition of this complex, IHCL will have 19 hotels in the state of Gujarat, including six under development. This incorporates Vivanta Ahmedabad, a 176-room site opening by the end of this year.

Pioneering spirit

Puneet Chhatwal, MD and CEO, IHCL, said: “IHCL, with its pioneering spirit in developing destinations in India, is honoured to set foot in Kevadia.

“The Statue of Unity is a symbol of India’s evolving experiential travel landscape in recent times. We are delighted to partner with SSNNL for this project.”
