Oberoi Hotels & Resorts featured on www.forbes.com, USA.
Influential travel writer and opinion leader Mr. Larry Olmsted revisits the best hotel experiences he has had in 2015 and calls his trip to India his top experience for sheer lodging luxury. This is Mr. Olmsted’s 5th article on Oberoi Hotels & Resorts post his India trip. Mr. Olmsted contributes to various publications including WSJ Magazine, Robb Report, Elite Traveller and Town and Country.
He highlights Oberoi Hotels & Resorts for the 'overwhelmingly polite, helpful and friendly staff’' and 'the attention to detail across multiple locations'. Describing his stay at The Oberoi Vanyavilas, he says it was 'every bit the equal of the swankiest safari lodges of South Africa'. The 'freestanding "tented" villas sprawling across 35 manicured acres meant to evoke the bygone style of royal caravans’ at The Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur are given a special mention. He also compares the 'modern urban Oberoi in Delhi' to the 'Peninsula Chicago, a favourite of his.'
Laying emphasis on the quality of hospitality, Mr. Olmsted talks about the group operating 'its own hotel and culinary training programs rather than relying on top schools, assuring an unrivaled level of consistency among managers and kitchens virtually unheard of in the luxury hotel world'.
He also highlights the Conde Nast Traveler readers ranking 'four different Oberoi properties among the 15 Best Hotels on Earth – and as the four best hotels in all of Asia, which has the largest collection of top luxury hotels anywhere'. Adding that Travel + Leisure naming The Oberoi Udaivilas the 'world’s single best hotel' punctuates this point.
The article also talks about the group’s presence in Bali, Mauritius, Egypt and the Middle East, and the 'two critically acclaimed river cruise vessels' all of which he says are 'Unconditionally recommended'.
