Hospitality group Tamara makes its foray into Kerala market
Hospitality group Tamara has launched its 5-star hotel O by Tamara in Kerala. With this launch, the Bangalore-based company ventures into the Kerala market.
The newly opened hotel is the perfect destination for business and leisure, and boasts the biggest hotel Convention Centre in the state capital.
Shruti Shibulal, CEO and Director, Tamara Leisure Experiences Pvt Ltd, said, “The decision to initiate operations in Kerala was guided by the state’s considerable progress in the tourism and IT sectors. Kerala is an evergreen tourist destination and has always attracted visitors from across the globe. We hope to partner with and contribute to the hospitality ecosystem in the state.”
