South Asia Travel & Tourism Exchange (SATTE), New Delhi
Just a note to let you know that I’ve been in New Delhi in India for the last few days at the South Asia Travel & Tourism Exchange (SATTE) to represent Small Luxury Hotels of the World™. This trade travel show gives me an opportunity to showcase SLH properties to India and other Asian countries – India now being a major player in the travel and tourism sector.
You’ll be interested to hear for your own travels that SLH currently has fourteen boutique hotels throughout India, several of which I shall be visiting while I am here.
I’ll be visiting The Paul Bangalore – a sophisticated all-suite boutique hotel in central Bangalore; Orange County Coorg, set in a coffee plantation, and Orange County Kabini – a wildlife haven.
Two other calls that my colleagues will be making to boutique hotels in India (as I just ran out of time) are to Kumarakom Lake Resort, a lovely property (a recreation of an ancient Kerala village) set in a coconut grove, and to an immaculately restored 300-year old hotel set in wonderfully serene gardens – the Old Harbour Hotel, also in Kerala.
You should check out these intimate luxury hotels in India on the SLH website or in the Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ Directory – you’ll love them, they’re unusual hotels in India. Take your Father with you if you go, he would love to explore historical Jaipur and discover the abundant wildlife and culture in Mysore-Kabini.
Be in touch when I get back from SATTE in India.
