The Zuri Group Global is headquartered in Bangalore. Promoted by a consortium of investors from the Middle East, the group began its India operations in 1999 with three hotel properties, all under franchise agreements with leading international hotel brands. Progressing steadily towards its vision of being an international hospitality major of choice, the group launched The Zuri Hotels & Resorts Pvt Ltd in October 2008. This significant launch ushered in a fresh new approach towards luxury hospitality with a chain of luxury hotels and resorts in India and the overseas. All existing properties of the group previously operated under franchise agreements, have also been brought under The Zuri brand umbrella. Zuri Hotels & Resorts currently owns and operates six luxury hotel properties at various locations in India, Kenya and the UK. New properties, at strategic locations in the country, are also in various stages of development, with many more in the pipeline.
