The hospitality industry is booming in India. The industry was struggling from the pandemic during the same quarter last year. However, the sector continued to post strong yearly growth in the third quarter of the 2022 calendar year due to festivals, weddings and increased corporate travel.
Motilal Oswal Financial Services said in its hotel sector update said that the hotel occupancy rate is expected to improve on the back of strong demand drivers such as wedding season, G20 summit meetings, and the resumption of foreign inbound travel. It added that the average room rent (ARR) is expected to continue increasing, thereby boosting Revenue per available room (RevPAR).
Many Indian hotel companies have also changed their profit strategies. Many of them have become asset-light by selling some properties, reducing debt or combining owned and managed hotels.
Here are three hotel stocks that gave multibagger returns in the past year:
It is one of the largest mid-priced and third-largest overall hotel chains in India. The company announced that it had signed a licence agreement for a 42-room property in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, earlier this week.
