It is the fifth Fairfield in South Asia and the first Marriott in Nepal. Prakash Jayadevan, general manager of the hotel, spoke about his new hotel and tourism in Kathmandu.
FAIRFIELD By Marriott, part of Marriott International, recently announced its expansion to Kathmandu, Nepal. This marks Marriott International’s entry into Nepal. The company has nearly 850 hotels worldwide and plans to further expand in South Asia.
Speaking to BW Hotelier, Prakash Jayadevan, Managing Director of Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu, said, “The tourism industry in Nepal is booming day by day, so many international brands are opening their chain here in Nepal. Marriott is almost 90 years old now and has been around for almost a century.
Jayadevan added that “Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu is the first Marriott International hotel in Nepal to guarantee high standards of service with its fresh and contemporary design, excellent service and excellent value for money. “
The hotel is located in Thamel, a place known as the center of the tourist industry, five kilometers from the airport.
“Fairfield by Marriott is designed for today’s traveler, whether for business or pleasure. We aim to set the standards for providing a great hotel experience at an affordable price, through consistent and reliable service that comes from being part of Marriott International, ”Jayadevan said of his branding plan in Nepal.
Sharing his thoughts on the markets of the two countries, Jayadevan explained, “India is now a mature market with domestic tourism forming the basis of the travel industry. Apart from that, a large business base insures a large percentage of business travelers. While Nepal still depends a lot on international travelers. Domestic tourism is still in its infancy and business travel is also very low. “
Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu is the latest addition to the brand along with four other hotels currently open in India, including Fairfield by Marriott Rajajinagar, Bengaluru, Fairfield by Marriott Outer Ring Road, Bengaluru, Fairfield by Marriott Lucknow and Fairfield by Marriott Belagavi, Karnataka.
