Relais & Châteaux presented the Indian Subcontinent Showcase with the finest boutique member properties in the Indian Subcontinent on September 7. The regional delegation came together to showcase their offerings: a high level of service, exceptional cuisine and upscale hospitality for discerning travellers.
The event was graced by a number of potential trade partners based in Mumbai at The A Club in Mumbai. Delegates had the opportunity to engage in an exciting and interactive table-top session with the regional hoteliers and gather in-depth knowledge about each member property.
Each member of Relais & Châteaux has a driving desire to promote the richness and diversity of the subcontinent’s delectable cuisine and its varied traditions of hospitality. They are committed to preserving local heritage and the environment, as encompassed in the charter presented to UNESCO in November 2014. Rich in diverse history, soaring mountains, ancient temples and verdant tea plantations, the Indian Subcontinent specializes in presenting holidays as unique as the landscape itself.
“With a strong belief that hospitality and cuisine help make each and every experience truly unique, we are delighted to put forward a specially-curated, engaging platform for our members from the Indian Subcontinent to showcase their culinary expertise and world-class hospitality to our important trade partners in Mumbai. We are committed to providing evolved travellers, diverse opportunities to embrace the spirit of experiential travel.” said, Jaisal Singh – Vice President & Member of the Executive Committee, Board of Directors at Relais & Châteaux.
