Grant Hyatt Kochi hosts networking event in Riyadh
Grand Hyatt Kochi Bolgatty recently hosted a networking event for tour operators and travel agents in Riyadh. The event was held at Hyatt Regency Riyadh Olaya and attended by Saudi Arabia’s top tour operators, travel bloggers and members of the media.
Girish Bhagat, general manager of Grant Hyatt Kochi Bolgatty, introduced a soon-to-open luxury waterfront resort, describing it as a “game changer” in South Indian tourism, especially in Kerala.
He said the resort has a large convention facility, which is expected to host a number of big events and conventions and draw tourists to South India.
“This is the most anticipated luxury hotel in South India and the convention center will boost the presence of Kerala on the world tourism map. We are proud to open our doors and set a new milestone for Kerala as a leisure and corporate meeting destination,” Bhagat added.
India and Saudi Arabia enjoy strong relations. Kerala is a popular tourist destination among Saudis.
The hotel and convention center is owned by UAE-based LuLu Group International.
