Hotel Industry Review - More room for growth


Massive Incredible India promotion campaign undertaken by the Government of India led to more than 24.3% increase in the number of foreign tourists visiting India to cross 3mn mark in the year 2004.

This clubbed with surging occupancy rates (OR) and average room rentals (ARR), converted into strong growth for the companies in the industry.

18

Aggregate net sales of the companies rose by 30% to Rs.5.8bn


The main reason for this growth were surging occupancy rates and average room rates across the country. The rise was mainly on back of less than required capacity additions in the country. There is a need to add another 60,000 hotel rooms to the existing stock of nearly 100,000 Government approved rooms, over the next three years.
