The festive season is upon us and it’s time to celebrate with a quick and responsible getaway to make up for that lost summer vacation. As domestic travel sees a strong pick up, NDTV speaks to Mr. Vikram Oberoi, CEO of The Oberoi Group, to find out more. “With the lockdown easing the first thing that picked was leisure travel. People hadn’t seen family or friends, or engaged with people they love. We saw a strong demand for our leisure hotels. Corporate travel is also picking up now that people are returning to work.” On the Oberoi and Mandarin Oriental alliance, he said, “There are many similarities between Oberoi and Mandarin Oriental. We both provide our guests with exceptional level of care. We emphasise the growth and development of our colleagues. We follow a high standard of ethics and this guides us to make the right decisions. With this commonality, we were able to build this alliance. Mandarin Oriental has 33 hotels in destinations like Hong Kong, London, New York, Paris and Singapore. Oberoi Hotels are regarded as some of the best in the world. This alliance will enable guests to stay in 50 of the finest hotels around the world. This alliance is the first of its kind in this industry. Along with Oberoi One, our guest recognition programme, we hope to bring special products and privileges to our guests.”
