Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), has further expanded its portfolio with the signing of two new Taj-branded hotels in Bhutan.

Located in Phobjikha and Paro, these properties are brownfield projects and will be opened in partnership with CG Group.

These latest additions come just after IHCL announced the opening of Ginger Gangtok, Bojoghari, in the Indian state of Sikkim last week.

IHCL managing director and CEO Puneet Chhatwal said: “These signings demonstrate IHCL’s commitment to the region and our focus on expanding our footprint in key leisure destinations.

“We are delighted to bring two Taj-branded hotels to the Kingdom of Bhutan with its stunning natural landscapes and rich cultural heritage. This also furthers our longstanding partnership with the CG Group.”

CG Corp Global and CG Hospitality Global chairman Binod Chaudhary said: “Taking forward our partnership with IHCL spanning 25 years and 12 assets across six countries, the two Bhutan hotels, built with sustainability at the core, will showcase the unique blend of traditional Bhutanese charm and Taj’s unmatched hospitality, offering travellers an unforgettable stay in the Himalayan kingdom.”
