A Profile of The Leela Group
The birth of the thought to build a world class hotel for India took shape in Captain C.P. Krishnan Nair’s mind in early 1957. The dream was realized in 1986 when Captain Nair opened his first hotel - The Leela Mumbai. Till then, his enterprise was The Leela Lace Ltd. which was engaged in the business of handloom textiles and ready made garments. Today, The Leela’s portfolio includes hotel and resorts properties, business parks and real estate developments.
Hotel Leelaventure Ltd.
The Leela is one of India’s finest groups of hotels. It has established a leadership position by offering prime locations, excellent facilities, and personalized service to international travellers.
Today, there are two business properties in Mumbai and Bangalore, and two leisure resort properties in Goa and Kovalam, Kerala with its own individual design, character and ambiance.
In the near future, The Leela Group will add to its portfolio six new properties in Gurgaon Delhi NCR (opens Nov. 2008), Udaipur (opens Jan. 2009), Chennai (opens 2009), New Delhi (opens 2010), Hyderabad (2011) and Pune (2011).
The Leela Group’s standard of excellence is best described by Capt. Nair, “Fundamental to our business is the all pervasive Indian tradition of hospitality. We honor the cultural heritage of India. Our properties have world class technology and Leela has the full commitment of our staff.
Adding credence to this belief is our recent recognition by 30,000 discerning travellers and readers of Conde Nast who voted The Leela Bangalore as “World’s Favourite Overseas Business Hotel” in their Annual Readers’ Poll 2007. It was also listed in the Best Rooms’ category in the Conde Nast Gold List 2009.
