Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) has signed a site in Ranthambore National Park to convert into a Taj property.

The deal will see the debut of the brand in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan. The currently operational hotel will be rebranded, post upgradation.

Park life

Slated to open in 2023, Taj Ranthambore will feature an all-day dining restaurant, a bar and a specialty pool bar. The hotel will have a conference hall and meeting rooms, as well as recreation facilities including a swimming pool, spa, gym and billiards room.

The 60-room property is strategically located in Khilchipur, adjoining the national park. A short drive from the park’s gate, the hotel has a mix of villas and suites, catering for leisure travellers.

This hotel is under a management contract with The Footprints Ranthambore, parent company of the nearby Sawai Vilas hotel and Ranthambhore Regency & Nomads Luxury Camps.

Tourism potential

Puneet Chhatwal, MD and CEO, IHCL, said: “IHCL has always endeavoured to establish and position unique destinations on the global travel map. Ranthambore National Park is a key tiger reserve in Rajasthan known for its natural beauty. Introducing the Taj brand in Ranthambore will further elevate the tourism potential of this destination. We are delighted to partner with The Footprints Ranthambore for this project.”

Arvind Jain, managing partner, The Footprints Ranthambore, added: “We are delighted to partner with IHCL to introduce the Taj brand in Ranthambore, the abode of tigers. We believe that this will further evolve the hospitality landscape of this region.”

With the addition of this hotel, IHCL will have 19 hotels across brands in Rajasthan, encompassing seven under development. These include the 170-room Taj Alwar, Rajasthan, plus Taj Jaipur, adding 184 keys to the portfolio when it opens this October.
