ITC Hotels, one of the largest hotel groups in India, has announced the opening of WelcomHotel by ITC Hotels, Jim Corbett.
WelcomHotel by ITC Hotels, Jim Corbett, is about a 45-minutes’ car ride away from India’s premier national park, Jim Corbett National Park, home to over 600 different varieties of flora and fauna. Set atop a hill, the resort property offers a birds’ eye view of the picturesque valley below. The resort is spread over 3.5 acres (14164 square meters).
The resort features 62 well-appointed and beautifully-designed Superior Rooms, which come with balconies & private sit-outs, as well as multiple open areas with enchanting views of the Kosi river and lush green hills that bring natural splendour up and close. All the rooms are spacious with 53 square meters of floor space. The bathrooms feature a single sink, a shower area and a WC.
Brand Welcomhotel provides enriching experiences to guests and has gained great popularity among new-age travellers. Nestled in a picturesque locale in Uttarakhand, Welcomhotel Jim Corbett is a tastefully designed property, ideal for both business and leisure staycations. This hotel offers amongst the largest banqueting spaces in the region making it the perfect wedding & MICE destination.said Anil Chadha, Divisional Chief Executive, ITC Hotels.

Young adults can spend their day in various indoor and outdoor activities at the Ollie’s Corner. One can discover wellness and holistic rejuvenation for an overall reboot of the body and mind at the soon to open K by Kaya Kalp Spa.
The resort features a 800-square-meter outdoor and a 250-square-meter indoor banqueting space with two meetings rooms. With a glorious hill backdrop, the property highlights stunning locales with manicured lawns, while the pillarless ballroom enables customised set-ups with mesmerising views through large bay windows.
Guests can experience an open-air adventure as they hop and skip over spring brooks, gurgling cool water that come from deep within the mountains; crossing lazing village hamlets, jolly locals and a plethora of shrubbery to reach the resort.
The resort provides several experiences such as nature walks through the woods around the hotel, bird photography sessions, bonfire experience, a picnic under the shade of forest canopies etc.
Welcomhotel Jim Corbett has all the makings of a “Green” hotel. The property is laid out to receive maximum natural light and with commitment to sustainability, solar panels generate renewable energy to reduce carbon footprint.
The resort utilizes renewable solar power to meet its energy demands of approximately 60%.
The arrival of WelcomHotel by ITC Hotels, a premium hotel brand, in Jim Corbett raises the competition in the area. According to me, the main competition that WelcomHotel Jim Corbett will face is from Taj Corbett Resort & Spa, another 5-star hotel under another major hotel group, IHCL. Given the proximity of Taj property to the national park as compared to that of WelcomHotel, Taj has an advantage there. However, Taj’s property is quite old so travellers will want to look for other options in the area and I am sure WelcomHotel will be at the top of the list.
Meanwhile, ITC Hotels recently announced the opening of ITC Narmada, Ahmedabad, the first LEED Platinum certified hotel in Gujarat.
