A number of international hotel chains have recently announced plans to expand their operations in India.

Tina Banerjee, editor of Columbus Travel Media, believes that this reflects the growing popularity of India as a major tourist destination, especially as the cost of flights to India is decreasing.

“It’s very friendly, the transport links within the country have improved and there’s a network of low-cost airlines, which means getting around multiple destinations is so much easier,” said Ms Banerjee.

She added that the country also offers good-value-for-money, with hotels offering a range of luxury options at low prices compared to other destinations.

“You can pay top-dollar in India, but you’re still saving a whole bunch of money compared to a destination in America or Europe. You can really splash out without breaking the bank,” explained the editor.

Marriott, Intercontinental and ITC hotel chains have all recently confirmed that there are to open more India-based properties in the near-future.
