Global hospitality group Minor Hotels has selected BrandsWeLove (BWL) as its public relations agency in India ahead of the debut of its flagship modern luxury brand Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas in Jaipur, India, later this year. The appointment follows a competitive pitch, effective from 15 April 2024. BWL will partner with Minor Hotels to increase awareness of its global portfolio of properties among Indian travellers, especially for its flagship luxury Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas and upscale lifestyle Avani Hotels & Resorts brands.

BWL will also promote Minor Hotels’ expansion in India, first with the Anantara Jaipur Hotel in Q3 this year and future new openings in the pipeline. Marion Walsh-Hédouin, Global Head of Public Relations & Communications for Minor Hotels, commented: “India is becoming an outbound travel superpower as more Indian travellers broaden their horizons by heading overseas. India is one of Minor Hotels’ fastest-growing international source markets, and the country is an essential piece of our global expansion plan to capture a portion of the expanding domestic travel market, too, with the target of 50 new openings in India within the next decade.
