Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the signing of a management agreement SRDF Ventures Private Limited to develop Crowne Plaza Resort Pushkar in Rajasthan. The resort is scheduled to open in 2026.
Crowne Plaza Resort Pushkar will be a new-built property and will feature 125 guest rooms and suites. The resort will be located on the outskirts of Pushkar and will be well-connected to one of the most significant highways in India passing through Delhi, Mumbai and Jaipur, National Highway 8. Situated within a few hours of driving distance from Jaipur and Delhi NCR (National Capital Region), the hotel will also cater to domestic travelers and pilgrims looking for a short stay option to attend the fairs and festivals that Pushkar is known for.
Sudeep Jain, Managing Director, South West Asia, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said:
We are thrilled to announce the signing of a new Crowne Plaza Resort in Pushkar which has become a hotspot for leisure and spiritual tourists visiting Rajasthan. The city’s growing popularity as a weekend and wedding destination also presents a great opportunity for us, and bringing our premium brand, Crowne Plaza to the city will help us cater to this increasing demand. We are confident that on opening, Crowne Plaza Resort Pushkar will be a widely popular destination amongst travellers visiting Puskar from within India and international markets as well. We recognize the growing tourism potential of secondary markets in India and this signing is in line with our strategy to fill the need gap for quality branded accommodation in these cities.
