Raoof Dhanani, Managing Director – Sayaji Hotels

1)    Tells us about your journey

Sayaji Hotels Group commemorated its 33rd anniversary on January 7th. The first stone of the hotel was laid in Vadodara in the year 1990. Starting from the Kala Ghoda Circle with a generous inventory of 54 rooms, Sayaji Hotels now operates 17 Hotels in the cities of Indore, Vadodara, Kolhapur, Bhopal, Pune, Raipur, Rajkot, Jamnagar and Nashik. Today, Sayaji Hotels is India’s premier lifestyle hospitality brand renowned for its bespoke experiences, signature hospitality, and ushering new standards of opulence in the 4-star and 5-star hotel industry.

We also plan to expand our footprints nationally with properties opening soon in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan to mention a few.

2)    What do you think it takes to succeed in life?

 To succeed in life, everything requires the right attitude. Set practical goals for yourself to avoid setting yourself up for failure. Discover your strengths along the way and keep at it.

3) What is the biggest challenge you have to face? 

Changes in guest expectations is one of the biggest challenges we face. The days when clean bedsheets, a well-stocked minibar and delicious food were enough to ensure a satisfied guest are now far away. Nowadays guests require more from hotels, be it free WiFi, complimentary breakfasts, entertainment system, swift check-in check-out services, specific room location, unique meal preference etc.

 4) What message would you like to give to budding entrepreneurs?

To be a strong entrepreneurial character, one must never stop learning and asking questions.
