Majority of upscale hotels have resumed business

Goa : Even as a majority of upscale hotels have resumed business, at least 2,500 smaller hotels largely two- and three-starred that depend mostly on budget foreign and domestic tourists, have yet to begin operations. The need to compete with the lowered tariffs and attractive stay packages offered by four- and five-starred properties has only added to their woes.Domestic tourists also prefer high-end hotels on the presumption that these will scrupulously follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) implemented amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Of the 4,000 registered hotels in the state, just about 1,100 have commenced their operations, but most smaller hotels haven’t for want of business,” said president of the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG), Nilesh Shah.He said that while the number of three-starred hotels that have resumed is not likely to be more than 60, the only silver lining is the resumption of casinos that could in turn spur the reopening of small hotels in and around the state capital over the next few days.
