In an effort to revitalise its properties in the face of fierce competition from private hotels, the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) is revamping 10 of its hotels.
34 hotels and motels will also be provided by the Corporation to private players as part of the operation and management (O&M) model.
The Corporation has developed a plan to make its properties appealing and competitive with private hotels, which have overtaken them over time.
“We have 74 properties in all, and we are now remodelling 10 hotels that will be managed by the Corporation itself. The task has begun. In addition, we are developing a plan to provide 34 additional properties under the O&M Model, according to RTDC Chairman Dharmendra Rathore.
He said the agency is working to get titles of properties and other assets under the name of the Corporation, noting that the RTDC previously ran into difficulties leasing out its hotels owing to problems with the title of the properties.
Hotel Kesar Jhumar Bawdi of Ranthambore (Sawai Madhopur), Hotel Gokul of Nathdwara (Rajsamand), Hotel Sarovar of Pushkar (Ajmer), Hotel Lake Palace of Alwar (Silisedh), Hotel Gangaur of Jaipur, Hotel Khadim of Ajmer, Hotel Kajri of Udaipur, Hotel Forest Lodge in Bharatpur, Hotel Tiger Den in Sariska (Alwar), Hotel Shikhar in Mount Abu (Sirohi) are the hotels which are being renovated.
