One of the unique selling propositions of our hotel is the 12,000 sq. ft. of entertainment space called ‘The Den’.

Like these, we focus on creating several touch points for our guests during the course of their stay to ensure they leave with fond memories and look forward to coming back at this stunning resort in the Himalayas.”

Positioning of the resort: “our endeavor is to be the North India’s premier family style resort, and in order to accomplish this, we have incorporated numerous activities and facilities which are ideal for families. Like a typical resort, there will be a fairly large dependence on the wholesale and group segments. The hotel is fortunate to already have many wholesale partners on board to support the same,” said Joshi, adding, “In terms of groups, we aim to target high end residential weddings and senior management corporate off sites. In terms of pricing, we are fairly aggressive as compared to our competitors and aim to achieve this differential with our stunning product and signature elements of the renowned JW service.” Marketing plans & strategy to promote the property: “Similar to the other resorts in this part of the country, our primary feeder markets will be Delhi-NCR and the major cities in Punjab- Chandigarh, Amritsar, Ludhiana and Jalandar. Along with this, with a strong network of our national and market sales teams, we aim to drive business from our secondary markets such as Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkatta,” said,” said Joshi, adding,

“We are also banking on Marriott Rewards, our award winning loyalty program to reach out to 13 million plus loyal customers across the world to attract the international market. Through an integrated marketing plan, which includes extensive print and outdoor advertisements in these gateway cities, we aim at creating awareness about our hotel. Lastly, with our active presence on social media, we aim at maintaining a continued interest in our property.” As for expected occupancy in the first year operation of the property, Joshi said that Mussoorie is a seasonal destination that does an average of 50-55% occupancy on an annual basis. ‘We aim to drive similar level of occupancy with a substantial price premium over our competitors. We will be targeting even higher levels of occupancies during the season months which are May, June and July,” he added.
