Keys Hotels brings in Staycation concept in India
26 Feb 2013

Keys Hotels have introduced the concept of Staycation in India allowing locals to get a taste and feel of a short vacation and enjoy the best of services and comfort at a pocket-friendly cost.

Sanjay Sethi, Managing Director and CEO, Berggruen Hotels, said, "Staycation is an innovative offering by Keys Hotels for those who want to put their feet up in the air and unwind, miles away from the day-to-day stress of work or managing households. The concept is being pioneered by Keys Hotels at some of our hotels in India. We would like to make our guests feel at home and enjoy our amenities and have a pleasurable stay. We have developed special packages for Staycations comprising world-class hospitality experience at affordable price starting Rs 2,500 onwards.”

Talking about the USP of the Staycation concept, Sethi added, "Staycation is cheaper than travelling to another city or a country. You do not have to worry about airfares or transportation costs to and from your hotel. Hotels and resorts nowadays offer special packages to attract locals to their establishments. The trend of Staycation has engrossed hoteliers to offer facilities, which will help families to rejuvenate during weekend, and at Keys, one can enjoy a plethora of offerings like world cuisine menus, sporty restobar, swimming pool, gymnasium, Kerala Ayurvedic spa, children’s play area, banquets for parties and entertainment zones and more." 

Staycations are not only for families, but also for single women travellers who are professionals looking at a leisurely break from work, or housewives wanting to rejuvenate themselves away from the daily churn of family and kids. In addition, superior standards of security are being offered to women travellers. These are either in a separate wing or are assigned near an elevator, and have a video phone to identify person at the door. They also have extra CCTV surveillance for the corridors. Pradeep V, Chief Sales Officer, Berggruen Hotels, said, "We want to provide an experience to women guests that makes them feel safe, secured and pampered."
