Eco Hotels is a developed green hotel brand with experts on board. It aims at one of the largest markets in the world, India, and intends to expand to the UK and across the globe. One Eco Lodge is already up and running in Cochin with several other hotels and lodges in development. There are two brands- The Eco and Eco Lodge. Both brands are ecological and economical. The Eco 3 star properties would have 50 to 120 rooms inventory with one restaurant, a bar, room service, meeting rooms and banqueting spaces. Eco Lodge properties will be 2 star small inventory hotel properties with less than 50 rooms and limited facilities.
Eco Hotels brings a globally-established concept to emerging markets that show rapid expansion potential, and India has been chosen as the market where the concept will be launched. The sheer scale of operations and the rapidly escalating demand makes India the perfect opportunity. Eco Hotels is a brand that uncompromisingly oﬀers impeccable service, high standards and value additions to its customers’ experience at every step of the way. It is the ﬁrst carbon neutral hotel company of its kind and is built keeping the judicious traveller in mind, one who values quality, a seamless experience, cost eﬀectiveness and the well being of the environment. Use of various environmentally sound technologies allows Eco Hotels to maintain low costs and create a symbiotic cycle of eﬃciency. This cost and conscience advantage is then passed on to customers, thus making way for a new trend in the hospitality industry in India.
