Kochi: Following the successful launch of Fragrant Nature Backwater Resort & Ayurveda Spa in Kollam, Aroma Group of Companies is expanding its premium-luxury hotel brand, Fragrant Nature Hotels and Resorts, in Fort Kochi and Munnar, as part of the company’s plan to strengthen its presence in India.
The two five-star Projects, with a total investment of Rs. 250 crores, will be inaugurated on October 24 in Fort Kochi.
“Aroma Group ventured into hospitality business in 2008 by establishing a 4-star hotel near the backwaters of Kollam. I am extremely happy to point out that it is the first time in Kerala that two five-star hotel projects are being launched simultaneously. Our next hotel project will come up in 10 acres at Mararikkulam, near Alappuzha, with a paid up capital of Rs. 100 crores,” said Sajeev P K, Chairman & CEO, Aroma Group of Companies.
“The company is also building an Ayurveda Village in Kollam,” he added. Aroma Group was started in Dubai two decades ago and now has strong roots in India & Europe.
Elaborating on the projects, Anne Sajeev, MD, Aroma Group of Companies, said, “After the Mararikulam project, which is expected to be completed by end-2016, we are planning to expand the Fragrant Nature chain of hotels and resorts beyond Kerala and India. Our hotels are constructed by strictly adhering to quality standards and norms. Another major characteristic of Fragrant Nature Hotels is its eco-friendly designs and green interiors.”
“As the international trends are fast changing in the lines of experiential travel – our brand is evolving with a product line appealing to multiple market segments, be it Europe, Americas, Middle East or Australia,” said Santhosh Idicheria, Director – Business Development Aroma Group Hospitality & Tourism.
The hotel at Fort Kochi, built in the colonial-style architecture, has 41 rooms across three categories overlooking the Arabian Sea. It is also close to all major tourist spots in the vicinity.
The Fragrant Nature Munnar, styled similar to the local planter bungalows, is located at Pothamedu. One of the major highlights is that all of its 43 rooms offer unhindered view of the beautiful hill ranges of Western Ghats. This is the first five-start project in Munnar.
