The Thailand-based hospitality major, Amari, plans to foray into the Indian market by setting up atleast seven four-star hotels near major airports in the country, a top company official said.
"We plan to open four-star hotels associated to airports and will target corporate clients," CEO Amari Group Peter Henley told PTI here.
The company plans to come up with first hotel in Delhi by the year-end, followed by Mumbai next year. Other cities where Amari plans to open hotels includes Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad amongst others.
Though Henley would not divulge the investments set aside for the hotel-projects, it is understood that the company plans to deploy 5-10 per cent of its total Asia investment in the country.
Amari plans to tie-up with local construction companies to jointly bid for airport hotels in major parts of India, Henley said.
"We are in talks with major real estate developers in India to jointly bid for airport hotels across different parts of the country," Henley said.
