Radisson Hotel Group is set to build another 150-room Radisson Blu Hotel in Ayodhya, it announced in a press release. 

The hotel is being developed by Jeewani Hospitality in partnership with EaseMyTrip and is expected to open in 2027. This is Radisson Hotel Group’s second hotel in Ayodhya as it continues to invest in the city.  

Previously, it announced the opening of Park Inn by Radisson Ayodhya in January 2024. 

The hotel is strategically located within two kilometers of Shri Ram Mandir, Ayodhya. It is at a convenient distance from the Maharishi Valmiki International Airport, and Ayodhya Railway Station and further enjoys excellent road connectivity via National Highway-27. The hotel will boast excellent visibility while providing effortless connectivity to the region.  

“The signing of Radisson Blu Hotel, Ayodhya marks a significant milestone in our expansion strategy for India and the country’s high-potential tier 2/3 markets. Our decision to open another hotel in Ayodhya is greatly influenced by the robust guest demand and positive feedback that underscores the attractiveness of this holy city. Ayodhya stands strong as a promising market for Radisson Hotel Group, occupying a significant position in our expansion plans in 2024 and beyond.” said K.B. Kachru, chairman emeritus and principal advisor, South Asia, Radisson Hotel Group.  

Nishant Pitti, CEO and co-founder, of EaseMyTrip and an investor in Jeewani Group, said, “We are excited to partner with Radisson Hotel Group to open Radisson Blu Hotel, Ayodhya. This collaboration reflects our commitment to enhancing hospitality offerings in the city and providing exceptional experiences to travelers. By joining forces, we aim to set new benchmarks in the hospitality industry and create a landmark destination in Ayodhya."   

In a recent report, the global brokerage firm Jefferies suggested that the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya could significantly boost India's tourism industry, potentially drawing in more than 50 million visitors annually. 

The global brokerage highlighted that tourism made a significant contribution of $194 billion to India's GDP in FY19 (pre-Covid), with expectations of an 8 per cent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) leading to a projected GDP contribution of $443 billion by FY33. Despite this growth, India's tourism-to-GDP ratio stands at 6.8 per cent, positioning it lower than many other major emerging and developed economies.
