Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) has expanded its portfolio with the signing of its sixth Ginger-branded property with Hotel Pearl Dunes in Kerala, India.

This greenfield project is scheduled to open in 2027.

The latest addition comes just after the company signed a Vivanta-branded hotel in the state last week.

Prior to this, it launched a Ginger-branded hotel in the state of Maharashtra.

IHCL real estate and development executive vice-president Suma Venkatesh said: “With the addition of Ginger Bekal, IHCL will have three of its brands present in the destination.

“Bekal with its beautiful natural landscape is a key tourist attraction in Kerala and the new hotel will cater to this growing leisure market. We are delighted to further our partnership with Hotel Pearl Dunes.”
