EIH to add 700 rooms under Oberoi brand by 2013
Published on Thu, Apr 08, 2010 at 14:30 | Updated at Thu, Apr 08, 2010

Hotel operator EIH Ltd will add 700 rooms under its Oberoi brand by 2013 to its Indian and and overseas operations, a senior official said on Thursday.

The firm, which is reopening its damaged Oberoi wing in South Mumbai on April 24, also plans to add a second property in Gurgaon this year, Liam Lambert president of Oberoi Hotels & Resorts said.

The Oberoi's south Mumbai property was damaged in November 2008 when 10 armed militants stormed India's financial capital and killed 166 people.


Lambert said the 330 room hotel will be reopened with 280 rooms as 50 have been converted into suites.

He also said the firm will add five overseas properties in the Middle East in the next three years, mostly under management contracts.

In all, it operates 2,200 rooms under the Oberoi brand.

Under its Trident brand, EIH will add two hotels, one each in Hyderabad and Dehradun by 2012, taking its tally under Trident to 11, Rattan Keswani, president of Trident Hotels, said.

Keswani said the firm has seen healthy occupancy levels of 70 percent in the Jan-March quarter and occupancy levels were looking up but refused to give a forecast for the near term.

"Trending is impossible as there is no forecast model. Windows of booking have become so small that numbers don't tally."

"Considering everything, occupancies in the last quarter were quite delightful but summer will be a challenge," he said.

The summer season has historically seen lower occupancies and this would be the first summer post recession, he added.

At 1.25 p.m., EIH shares were up 0.51 percent at 129.25 rupees in a weak Mumbai market.

Taj Sets Opening Of Falaknuma Palace In Hyderabad


Hyderabad, India - Since its construction in 1884,
Falaknuma Palace has rarely been open to visitors, save for special guests of
the Nizam like the King and Queen of England. All that will change this
spring when Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces opens Taj Falaknuma Palace, one
of the most remarkable sights of Hyderabad. Set on a hillock, Falaknuma means
'heavenly abode' and the architecture is a singularly transcendent blend of
Italian and Tudor design.

According to a press release received by Elite Traveler, in keeping with Taj's mission to sensitively restore authentic palaces to
their former glory, Taj Falaknuma Palace limited accommodations to 60 rooms
and suites. Wimberly Allison Tong and Goo, leveraging their 50 years of
experience in high-end design consultancy, created the conceptual
architecture and sourced specialists from across the world to recreate old
artifacts and structures.

The grandeur of Taj Falaknuma Palace is best represented in its inexhaustible
detailing. Built in the shape of a scorpion over the course of nine years,
the palace retains priceless collections of Belgian Osler chandeliers,
paintings, statues, English furniture, stained glass windows, leather
upholstered rosewood chairs, gold and crystal tables, ivory figurines and an
Italian white marble fountain at the entrance, for starters. The library has
a walnut carved ceiling (a replica of that in Windsor Castle) and houses one
of the finest collections of the holy Quran in India.

Construction of Falaknuma began in 1884, the same year Sir Vicar-Ul-Umra
became Prime Minister of the Hyderabad State. Completed in 1893, this
magnificent palace became the last word in eastern opulence and luxury. Sir
Vicar made Falaknuma his home and played gracious host to lavish dinners,
house parties, hunt breakfasts and visiting European royalty. All the
furniture, paintings and other articles were made to order, as Sir Vicar
wanted to create an ambiance of heaven. Unfortunately, the palace eventually
led the Prime Minister into bankruptcy.

Since then, Falaknuma Palace has had many masters, from Nizam Mahboob Ali
Pasha to Mir Osman Ali Khan Bahadur. This spring it will join the ranks of
Rambagh Palace, Taj Lake Palace, and Umaid Bhawan Palace in the Taj Luxury
Hotels' segment. Taj Hotels has consistently and carefully carried out
restorations of the original elements of the architecture and the interior
design of its palace hotels. Refurbished with modern luxuries, these
exquisite palaces have now become true reflections of the grandeur and luxury
of Indian royalty, attracting tourists from across the world.

At Taj Falaknuma Palace, dine on royal Hyderabadi specialties, or savor the
finest Italian cuisine beneath the stars. Taj's Jiva Grande Spa complements
the royal experience at Falaknuma Palace with signature ancient Indian
therapies in exclusive treatment rooms overlooking cascading gardens.

Hyderabad is well connected by air and rail to all the major cities, and is
75 minutes from Mumbai and two hours from New Delhi by air.

MUMBAI: Hospitality major Royal Orchid Hotels plans to open seven more hotels in the country at an investment of Rs 500 crore by next fiscal, a top
company official said on Saturday.

He added that the company will open a five-star hotel with 150 rooms in Jaipur by the year-end and another 240-room hotel in Hyderabad in the next financial year.

The company had raised funds through an initial public offer in 2006 to fund its expansion plans.

Royal Orchid an attractive buy for long term investors
12 Apr 2010, 0611 hrs IST,Rajesh Naidu,ET Bureau

Royal Orchid Hotels is a leading mid-size hospitality company that began its operations in 1973 in Bangalore. The company, along with its subsidiaries, joint ventures and associate companies today operates 13 hotels with over 1,050 rooms across seven locations — five in Bangalore, two each in Mysore and Pune and one each in Hyderabad, Jaipur, Goa and Ahmedabad. It has four different brands – Royal Orchid (five-star business hotel), Royal Orchid Central (four-star business hotel), Royal Orchid Suites (four-star extended stay hotel) and Royal Orchid Resorts.

BUSINESS POTENTIAL:

Booming in the information technology (IT) sector in the 90s till early 2000 helped hotel players having presence in IT hubs, such as Bangalore, Hyderabad, make flourishing business due to increase in business travels. Among the few players, which have presence in Bangalore, Royal Orchid Hotels emerged as the chief beneficiary of the business travel to the IT city. The company came out with its initial public offering in 2006 and since then, it has expanded its base to Ahemdabad, Pune, Mumbai, and Goa. Though these cities are not specifically considered as IT hubs, the company wants to de-risk its dependence for growth on the IT sector. The company would explore into three more cities —Jaipur , Hyderabad, and Delhi—FY 11. The expansion has come at a time when occupancies at most destinations have shown an improvement. In the December quarter itself, the company’s occupancy levels have bounced back to 50-70 % from lows of 30-40 % in the June 2009 quarter. In the December 09 quarter, occupancy rates in Bangalore increased from 52% to 55%, Pune from 70% to 74%, Mysore 58% to 68%, Jaipur from 65% to 75% and Goa from 35% to 59% on a quarter on quarter basis. It is reported that post-expansion the company’s dependence on Bangalore would drop from the current 56% (of its revenues) to 31% the year ending March 2012. Most of these destinations the company has been associated with have been combinations of management contract, joint venture (with property owners, developers), lease and single ownership.


VALUATION :

On the valuation front, currently, the company is trading at price to earning multiple of around 26 times and almost at it book value. This is much cheaper than its peers Taj GVK Hotels, which is trading a P/E of 30x and nearly three times its book value. The company is on an expansion mode. It plans to invest around Rs 500 crore to double the number of hotels by FY12. The company may use the IPO proceedings to fund its expansion plans. It will take around two to three years for these investments to translate into good numbers for the company. With this expansion, the market is likely to rerate the company as its fortunes will no longer be tied to the fate of Indian IT industry. Longterm investors are advised to accumulate the stock at current level.

Which park hotel are you guys talking about? "Park Hyatt"? If that is so, then the building is already topped out. It's a low-rise.. 6-7 floors.. but it'll look magnificent. Also, they used complete metal beams instead of concrete pillars to build the structure.. which is first of it's kind I have seen, at least in Hyderabad.. (oh, I might have seen very little).. still

Hyderabad set to add 1,500 hotel rooms this year


Hyderabad, April 21


Hyderabad, one of the fastest growing cities in the country, is poised to add 1,500 star-rated hotel rooms during the year, expanding by 50 per cent the existing capacity of 3,000-plus rooms.

However, many hospitality project developers have adopted a cautious approach to new projects due to the prevailing political uncertainty. Most of them would prefer the business environment, affected by the separate statehood issue, becomes a lot more positive.

Even as the hospitality sector was shrugging off the impact of the slowdown and had taken a positive outlook on end-2009 and 2010, the agitation for a separate Telangana has hit occupancy levels with the cancellation of several scheduled conventions and meetings.

Positive numbers

The General Manager of the Fortune Manohar Hotel, Mr Ram Mishra, told Business Line that “while the last quarter of 2009 had begun to show positive numbers, the agitation had resulted in a spate of cancellations. For the sector, the third and fourth quarters of the financial year account for significantly higher numbers.”

As President of the Hotels and Restaurants' Association of Andhra Pradesh, Mr Mishra said occupancy levels had dropped to 50-55 per cent from 70-75 per cent. The untimely death of Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, and the elections had had an adverse effect on the sector. This had forced some developers to either reconsider new projects or put them off for the time being.

Infrastructure development

The General Manager of The Park of the Apeejay Surrendra Group, Mr Anurag Bajaj, feels that Hyderabad is the city to watch out for given the infrastructure being developed, beginning with the new international airport, the related expressways and satellite townships.

“If anyone does not factor these, he will miss the bus. This is similar to what Gurgaon witnessed few years ago. I am extremely bullish and we are getting into commercial launch mode with The Park at the right time,” Mr Bajaj said.

Hyderabad hospitality has recently added The Courtyard by The Marriott; the Park Hotel is getting underway; and The Westin Mindspace of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, one of the biggest properties in the city, has added 428 rooms.

During the course of the year, a couple of more properties will get underway. By the next year at least five or six more properties with a capacity of about 1,500 rooms will come up. This includes a property of the Sarovar Hotels, The Green Park, another facility of the Taj GVK group, and The Hyatt among several others.

Tariff rates in the city have stabilised after touching dizzying highs a couple of years ago, they observed.
