ICS Group (India) makes a foray in the Indian market with Ayana Hospitality with the flagship property ‘Ayana Fort Kochi.’ This is pegged as a luxury boutique hotel in Kochi, the gateway to the state of Kerala. The hotel is a 200-year-old courthouse that has been restored and refurbished with the best of amenities, but keeping the characteristic vibe unimpacted. Akhil Behl, Chief Executive Officer, Ayana Hospitality, said, “It has been designed and renovated in perfect harmony with the legacy of the property, the environs and culture of the region. Our efforts towards guest’s experiences are not limited to the hotel premises only, but are far more rounded and encompassing. Going forward we will add more unique properties to our portfolio and will strive to raise the bar in personalized tailored luxury.”
