Cementing its position as a major global player in hospitality sector, leading hospitality brand Hotel Jewels Classic has announced that it will expand its brand portfolio by opening new hotels and Restaurants in London and later in Europe.
Beginning its journey in 1994 under the august leadership of Col. Manbeer Singh Choudhary (Veteran) as Chairman and Mrs. Binny Choudhary as Managing Director, the brand remained a benchmark of hospitality and quality service in India. Hotel Jewel’s sister brand, Noor Mahal Palace Hotel, positioned as a luxurious palatial heritage hotel is pacing up and is a new iconic brand in the hospitality industry especially in Delhi NCR. To promote India’s royal legacy and culinary heritage and set new milestone for India’s growing independent hotel chains, the company will invest USD 20 Million in London’s promising hospitality business.
The move forms part of an aggressive expansion plan that will see one of India’s fastest growing independent hotel brands greatly increase its operational footprint in UK and other countries by 2023. The company aims to set new growth and recovery milestones for the hard hit travel and hospitality sector by expanding its footprints to London initially and later in Europe.
Noor Mahal’s new premium restaurant chain by the name of “Colonel Saab” is all set to welcome guests in London around July 2021, in the heart of the most dynamic part of town and prime real estate location the High Holborn. This will become the torchbearer of India’s rich and royal cultural legacy, architect and culinary delight. This aesthetically beautiful dining space in central London on the New Oxford Street will combine traditional with the progressive. This iconic hospitality landmark will be a contemporary viewpoint sharing a nostalgic palate of the royal bygone era, aromas and Indian flavors.
“We look forward to bringing the legendary Indian hospitality to “Colonel Saab” in the iconic high Holborn Building, one of the busiest and prime real estate locations in Central London. The group has aggressive expansion plans, and it aims to expand its footprints in other parts of London and Europe. The year 2021 will be a turning point for the company's expansion plans.
