Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group (MHG) has signed its first property in India.
The new Oaks-branded hotel will be located in Neemrana, a developing business hub located southwest of New Delhi. Once open in 2017, the Oaks Neemrana will provide 116 apartments, comprising 68 studios, 40 one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom apartments.
Facilities will include a restaurant with sky garden, a lobby café and lounge area, a swimming pool with pool bar, a gym, children’s play area, and 160m² of meeting space.
The property will be housed above the NSP Arcadia Mall, which is currently under construction and will include a supermarket, banks, department stores, retail outlets, restaurants and a multiplex cinema. A second internationally-branded hotel is also under development in a neighbouring tower, which is expected to open shortly after the Oaks.
“We are excited to announce both the first Oaks in India and also the first Minor Hotel Group property in India,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group. “The Oaks brand is a great fit for this market, which represents a huge opportunity, and we are confident that the property will be a great success.”
Minor acquired the Australian Oaks brand in 2011 and has since expanded it to Thailand and the UAE. Additional properties are currently under development in China and Indonesia.
