Kerala has achieved a significant milestone by having the country’s highest number of five-star hotels. This was revealed in the latest data available in the National Database for Accommodation Units.
Kerala has surpassed states like Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Goa, popular among tourists and businesses as convenient locations.
According to the rankings, Maharashtra is second with 35 five-star hotels, Goa is third with 32, and Delhi, the nation’s capital, is fourth with 27. While the government plays a significant role in developing infrastructure and amenities, private players develop amenities provided to them, helping to increase the influx of national and international tourists to Kerala, according to PB Nooh, director of Kerala tourism.
In addition to projecting Kerala as a most sought-after destination for leisure and MICE, Rahul Raj, General Manager of the Hyatt Regency Trivandrum, said that this also puts us on a pedestal and significantly increases opportunities for career development in the hospitality industry.
According to Shruti Shibulal, CEO and Director of Tamara Leisure, this accomplishment is a strong catalyst that motivates us to promote and advance Kerala’s hospitality and tourism sector actively.
