Bhubaneswar: The Odisha-based Toshali Resorts has successfully bid for four Odisha Tourism-owned guest houses for management under Lease Development Agreement (LDA). The state tourism department had floated tenders for leasing out 33 hotel properties spread across the state from private hospitality investors recently.
According to Harihar Patra, director, (marketing), Toshali Group, the company has successfully bid for properties located in Pathrajpur, Ratnagiri, Udaigiri and Lalitgiri, all falling in the Buddhist circuit.
Since all these places are part of the Buddhist circuit, we will have a clear advantage to cater to this pilgrim segment in future, he said.
Toshali Resorts, which currently owns three properties, two in Odisha, and one in Shimla, will now focus on lease/management contracts for their brand expansion. The company has already taken on lease a beach property in Goa.
