Hotels sold out as ‘big fat Indian weddings’ recover from Covid shock

In what appears to be good news for the hotel industry, the big fat Indian weddings are back with a vengeance. Despite there being no ‘auspicious’ dates in October, hotels are hoping to be ‘booked out’ as Indians prepare to host weddings on the pre-Covid scale.

For example, the Fairmont hotel in Jaipur will probably be booked from the end of October to February of next year, as the hotel is almost fully booked. Hotel rates are up 35 percent from the pre-Covid period, the economic times informed.

Generally, April, May and June have many dates that are considered auspicious for weddings in India. However, this year’s demand remained subdued due to the spread of Omicron and subsequent restrictions in the country.

In January 2022, several hotels witnessed mass cancellations due to the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

According to the Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI), at the end of 2021, booking cancellations for Christmas and New Year celebrations, including weddings and planned events, due to the rise in Covid cases caused a loss of 200 million rupees in hospitality. industry.

Wyndham has already recorded 100% bookings for wedding dates in several Indian cities including Chandigarh, Kochi, Dehradun, Mussoorie, Kasauli, Jalandhar, Lucknow, Udaipur and Jaipur. And Royal Orchid and Regenta Hotels present in Goa, Mussoorie, Ranthambore and Hampi also admitted higher demand for hotels in the wedding season according to the Economic Times report.

Hoteliers across India are eyeing the wedding season with high hope as demand is expected to exceed pre-Covid levels in the wedding season which runs from late October to March 2022.
