Inde Hotels, a platform for independent hotels, providing end-to-end marketing and support services to drive revenue, has successfully added another feather to its cap by adding the Bijolai Palace Hotel, Jodhpur
under its umbrella.
The Bijolai Palace Hotel, a sprawling royal palace built in the 19th
century by the ruling family of Jodhpur-Marwar is nestled between the Aravali hills surrounded by lakes, creating an oasis in the desert. Bijolai Palace Hotel is currently owned by a Foundation and the income it gets from the hotel goes to support its work in providing drinking water to the communities of Thar Desert. More importantly, as a part of responsible tourism, the palace meets 100% of its water requirement through a unique method of rainwater harvesting.
The Palace design exhibits the meticulous planning of the old rulers. The 150-year-old Bijolai Palace Hotel is one of the oldest residences in Jodhpur built in 1859 by Maharaja Takhat Singh as his summer home, which has been declared as a 'Heritage Property', by INTACH. It had been used for many years as a lively royal paradise surrounded by lakes in the midst of the Aravali Hills.
Ms. Shamita Singh, Executive Director, Inde Hotels added,
"Adding Heritage property to Inde’s portfolio, is a well-thought strategy for the brand’s expansion. Heritage properties have witnessed an upsurge of tourism in India as the properties are privy to the rich culture, history and have a story to tell.
