Shaping the future is synonymous with educating young minds, and books play a massive role in this process. In an effort to promote inclusivity and clear biases, The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group has initiated a children's book series, "Elphie Books."
Elphie, dressed in rainbow colours, is gender non-binary and welcomes all with open arms. The books - Elphie and the Peacock & Elphie and the Dance Party - celebrate life. Elphie's struggles and his journey, where he learns the value of self acceptance and diversity; was the main highlight and is the underlining message of the book.
Headquartered in New Delhi, the company opened its first hotel here in 1988 under the dynamic leadership of Founder Chairman Mr. Lalit Suri, who spearheaded the Group’s unprecedented expansion plans.
Rapid expansion and consolidation of its leadership position continues under the enterprising stewardship of Dr. Jyotsna Suri, who took over as Chairperson & Managing Director in 2006.
All hotels within the group operated under the brand The Grand – Hotels, Palaces & Resorts. It was re-branded as ‘The LaLiT’ on November 19, 2008 as a tribute to the company’s Founder Chairman Mr. Lalit Suri.
The company offers twelve luxury Hotels, Places & Resorts and two mid market segment hotels under The LaLiT Traveller brand offering 2261 rooms.
