A 28th floor view from New Delhi's Connaught Place allows you to see a lot of things, including the sprawling urban landscape and clashing horizons between New and Puraani Delhi.
If you're at The LaLiT, however, turn around, because what you'll see is even more interesting - the tastefully decorated interiors of India's first inclusive restaurant - OKO.
Staffed exclusively by women and trans people, it's a microcosm of The LaLit's groundbreaking effort in the hospitality industry - providing not just an expertly crafted dining experience, but one that's backed by principles of equality and inclusivity. As Executive Director Keshav Suri puts it, “It's a destination designed to give birth to new ideas amongst the diners, a place where one can unwind over great wine, amazing sushi and conclude eventful discussions.”
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.
