Ex-Oberoi Group President Kapil Chopra has unveiled his new luxury chain — The Postcard Hotel. Almost a year ago, the veteran hotelier resigned from the hospitality giant to focus on being a full-time entrepreneur.
With ₹600 crores worth of assets under management, Chopra’s new venture is aimed at offering unique and authentic local experiences to the discerning travellers. As a part of this, guests will be served artisanal welcome cocktails instead of sugary drinks. Other highlights of The Postcard Hotel include no set breakfast hours, setting your own check in and check out hours and immersions with the local community.
“What I wanted to do with The Postcard Hotel is make luxury hotels for the modern audience but bring back the romance and charm of sun-kissed holidays. We wanted it to be rich in its experience but also wanted it to be simple. We believe guests want to stay in a place where the hotel does the thinking for them, where they get the simple things right, yet offer fantastic spaces for them to relax, meet like-minded people and experience local culture. This is why we handpick our locations and our hotels so that guests have a different experience whether they are in Goa or overlooking the snow-clad Himalayas,” says Chopra.
Announcing the launch, Kapil Chopra tweeted:
The luxury hotel brand has already opened its doors for the guests with the launch of three properties in Goa —The Postcard Moira, The Postcard Velha, and The Postcard Cuelim, each of which reflect a different facet of Goa. Guests can indulge in a range Ayurveda treatments and consultations at Purnarnava Ayurveda centre at these three properties.
Other upcoming properties of The Postcard Hotel in India include The Postcard, Uttarakhand, The Postcard on the Arabian Sea, Karnataka, The Postcard, Dhauladhar Mountain Range, The Postcard Ravangla, Sikkim, The Postcard, Darjeeling, The Postcard, Sundarbans and The Postcard, Kanha. Additionally, the brand, in collaboration with Ambuja Neotia group, will also open three hotels in Eastern and North Eastern India. postcardresorts.com
