The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group began the New Year by taking forward its theme of inclusivity and diversity. Spreading the message of #purelove, the group brought in Chef Chris Tripani from Texas. Chef Chris Trapani is the first transgender chef to appear on the Food Network in the United States. Since his arrival on the scene over a decade ago, Chef Trapani has emerged as a role model for the rights of the LBGTQIA community.
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.
