Sinclairs Hotels has announced some new projects in West Bengal, India. The company will open a new 5-star hotel in Kalimpong and a hotel in Burdwan, which will come with a large banquet complex. There is also one more accommodation in plans, a hotel in Kolkata, but it has not yet received all the necessary sanctions. The company has also just opened a hotel in the region. Sinclairs Retreat Ooty is a resort located on a hill in the Nilgiri Hills (also known as Blue Mountains). The hotel, which has 72 guestrooms and 7 suites, is distinguished by a unique location 2240 meters above the sea level.
The hotel is not newly built, so it has been renovated throughout 2011. After a complete renovation and refurbishment the accommodation is ready to greet both local and international guests. Visitors can reach the hotel from the Coimbatore airport which is approximately 3 hours away by car. The peak summer season is yet ahead, so the hotel may attract a significant number of arrivals.
The portfolio of Sinclairs contains other properties throughout India. These are hotels in Darjeeling, Siliguri, Port Blair, and Dooars. All accommodations showed good results in 2011, showing the growth of profit of 5%.
