Next in pipeline are another hotel in Mumbai and one in Panchgani, he added.

"For the second phase of expansion, we may also look for managing hotel properties for others," Ajmera said.

The company currently has four operational properties at Goa, Matheran (Maharashtra) and Nathdwara (Rajasthan) with a strength of 240 rooms.
