“In a decade or so, the busi­ness in Agra has grown. There’s a lot of com­pe­ti­tion now as good ho­tel brands have come up in the city. There are a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties in terms of ho­tel fa­cil­i­ties at a good value of price which will def­i­nitely at­tract trav­ellers from the do­mes­tic mar­ket,” he adds.

Gomes in­forms that he is look­ing at about 40 per cent growth from the do­mes­tic mar- ket and 20 per cent from in­ter­na­tional. The USP of the ho­tel is that half of the in­ven­to­ries of the ho­tel over­looks the Taj Ma­hal like the gym, the spa and most of the rooms. Even the re­cently opened roof-top restaurant at the ho­tel also gives a clear view of the iconic World Her­itage Site.

Re­veal­ing more about the ho­tel, Vivek Ma­ha­jan, Res­i­dent Man­ager, Four Points by Sheraton Agra, says that the 165-key prop­erty is fo­cus­ing on MICE and des­ti­na­tion wed­dings, in­ter­na­tional, do­mes­tic as well as theme wed­dings. “Dur­ing the months of Oc­to­ber to March it is the agents’ sea­son,” he says, adding, “The B2B part­ners are al­ways help­ful and we are fo­cus­ing on all part­ners like B2B and MICE.”
