Leisure Hotels - Introduction


At Leisure Hotels, we believe that well-planned, worry-free slices of time away from the routine are indispensable for sustenance in a tense city climate.

Leisure Hotels is the only Hotel Chain Companies operating in the state with more than 20 years of hospitality experience. We as pioneers in the field feel it is our duty & responsibility in setting standards & driving quality by offering good facilities & services to our guests. The individual resorts & camps typically offer between twenty to fifty rooms, thus helping us in providing very warm & personalized services.

“The essence of Hospitality”, we believe lies in the true Indian tradition of Atithi Devo Bhava – “Guest is God”. It is such philosophy and though that has inspired us to consider guest satisfaction as supreme and has gone long way in shaping our motto.

The group also has other interests in sugar manufacturing, mining, real estate & agriculture.

Various initiatives of Leisure Hotels Ltd in the fields of Eco Tourism & in Sustainable Tourism Management have been very well appreciated. Our experiences in creating, restoring and managing world class properties in Eco - Sensitive zones are especially commendable. Few of them are:

The Dhikala Canter Safari -The Canter Safari, a first of its kind of project run jointly by The Forest Department and The Corbett Hideaway started way back in 1996. After 10 years of successful PPP Relationship, the Dept. on the basis of this relationship now increased the number of Canters to four.

Largest Rafting Beach in Rishikesh - Leisure Hotels runs the largest river beach near Kaudiyala in Rishikesh for the last 5 years. We have been pioneers in offering a luxurious stay to all the guests at the camp with attached bath and running hot & cold water. The details of this camp have already been mentioned in the profile above.

The Chardham Camps (Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri & Yamunotri) - We run camps at Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri & Yamunotri for the last 4 years which are again in remote areas. It was only due to the fact that we have a large resource base of technical, managerial & operational staff that we have been able to serve thousands of pilgrim seekers to their satisfaction in base camps like Harsil, Barkot, and Guptkashi & Joshimath.

Restoration of 100 year old Haveli in Haridwar - We had in our possession an ancient Haveli on the banks of the River Ganges in Haridwar for the last 100 years. In 2003 we converted this Haveli into a beautiful “Heritage Hotel” which has now become the toast of town and is critically appreciated by all who visit this Holy Town.

The Wilderness Infrastructural Advantage - Leisure Hotels is a store-house of the best resources available in the field of nature study & appreciation. The wildlife guest experience at our wildlife lodges are unparalleled, leading to a most memorable wildlife experience for guests through slide shows, wildlife movies through LCD’s, nature walks & individual interaction with nature experts.

Mahaseer Conservation – Leisure Hotels Ltd shoulders the forest department of Uttarakhand in conserving Mahaseer (River Fish) in a particular stretch of Ramganga River in the reserve forest. This is one of its kind initiatives by the government to involve private operators in the conservations of forest and its habitat. Leisure Hotels Ltd through its property The Hideaway River Lodge, keeps a constant vigil on the Ramganga River provides food to the fishes and involves local villagers in the angling experience of the guests.

History

Leisure Hotels is a dominant player in Uttarakhand’s tourism and hotel sector with its portfolio of resorts & luxury camps in the state’s tourist & scenic destinations, offering largest inventory in the state .Leisure Hotels Limited (LHL) was originally incorporated as Private Limited Co. named “Prasad Safari P. Ltd.”

It has ventured in to the hospitality industry in Sept 1989 when the promoters opened the gates of The Naini Retreat, located on the southern lee-ward slopes of the Nainital Hills facing the Naini Lake which was once the residence of the Maharaja of Pilibhit (Prasad Family) and still enjoys the beauty, ambience and grandeur of a palace. The Ayarpatta slopes are virgin territory and are not congested and commercialized. The flora and fauna of the Kumaon Range is in abundance on this side of the township.

Since then Leisure Hotels Ltd has been adding hotels and camps in it portfolio every year either through own hotels or through management and marketing of boutique properties at strategic locations.

Our past associations with The Claridges, Camping in Mahakumbh with Cox & Kings, Club Mahindra (Mahindra Holidays & Resort India Ltd) has given us deep insights of the consumer expectations and evolution in the hospitality industry .
