The Postcard Hotel goes international, aims to own or manage a billion dollars of hotel assets in 5 years
The latest entrant in the Indian luxury hotel space, The Postcard Hotel, is all set to receive guests in Sri Lanka and Bhutan this November. After a successful start of three hotels in Goa, the brand’s first international venture will be Bhutan and Sri Lanka. Globally no luxury brand has expanded this fast with international openings in its first year of operations.
With over INR 1,000 crore of assets under management today and projects underway across South Asia, The Postcard Hotel is looking at owning or managing over USD 1 billion of assets in five years. The Postcard Hotel is on track to open 50 hotels in five years in experiential destinations across the world. The investment will be an intelligent mix of buying off the asset, taking a long term lease on the asset or managing it as a management company. On an operational level, the hotels in Goa have been profitable since inception in December 2018, due to a strong focus on consumer preferences and highly personalised service.
“We handpick our locations and our hotels so that guests have an authentic experience. Sri Lanka is the perfect location to explore the cultural landscape of the charming town of Galle, steeped in history dating back hundreds of years. While Bhutan, with its rich culture and breath-taking landscapes, has long been on the bucket list of most exclusive and luxury travellers. Guests will now be able to enjoy the best of luxury Indian hospitality that perfectly complements the unique splendour of these destinations,” said Kapil Chopra, Founder and CEO, The Postcard Hotel.
The Postcard Dewa will be the perfect base from which one can explore the magnificent landscape and culture of Bhutan. The newly built hotel with 15 suites, located with a spectacular hilltop view of the Thimphu valley and surrounding forests, aims to provide a sense of splendid seclusion while being just a 20-minute drive from the city’s sights and sounds. The hotel is a comfortable 40-minute drive from the Paro international airport. As the only carbon negative country in the world, 72% of Bhutan is forest-covered and the landscapes provide constant opportunities for photography.
The Postcard Galle, positioned above a beautiful lagoon, offers 180-degree vistas of the Indian Ocean. Inspired by the city that surrounds the hotel, this Postcard has 10 intimate suites offering the view and the sound of the ocean along with true Sri Lankan hospitality by passionate local experts.
