Here is a list of the top 10 hotels in India in 2015. The Indian Hospitality and Tourism industry is projected to be one of the fastest growing sectors in India. The 2014 figures show that over 7.46 million tourists arrived in India and the growth is projected to be of over 7% this year.
India has just over 200,000 hotel rooms in the country spread across various segments to cater the needs of all the economic segments. The country is still in shortfall of over 100,000 rooms and the number is likely to increase due to ease of visa in the country attracting more foreign tourists. However, there has been unprecedented growth in the construction of the Hotel industry as more than 114,000 rooms are planned to be constructed over the next five years so as to meet the demands of the ever increasing hospitality business.
