Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) has announced two upcoming hotels near the Statue of Unity in Kevadia, Gujarat, India.

For the greenfield projects, an agreement was signed with Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL), which has been instrumental in the development of the Statue of Unity.

The Vivanta and Ginger branded hotels will open in 2025.

IHCL managing director and chief executive officer Puneet Chhatwal said: “IHCL, with its pioneering spirit in developing destinations in India, is honoured to set foot in Kevadia. 

“The Statue of Unity is a symbol of India’s evolving experiential travel landscape in recent times. We are delighted to partner with the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd. (SSNNL) for this project.”

 The 125-room Vivanta and the 150-room Ginger hotels will be located within a short drive from the Statue of Unity.

Both the hotels will provide an array of dining and wellness facilities.

The Vivanta hotel will have conference facilities to cater to business travellers.

Kevadia is an iconic destination with many tourist attractions, such as the Statue of Unity, Valley of Flowers, Zarvani eco-tourism and Shoolpaneshwar temple among others.

With the addition of these two hotels, IHCL will have 19 hotels in the Indian state of Gujarat, with six under development.
