It was a grand night. After all, it was the wedding of the divine couple — Shiva and Parvati. It was Maha Shivratri, the night the powerful god married Parvati after resolving a zillions issues. Under the aegis of the Lalit Arts Festival (an initiative by The LaLit group) local flavours of the little town were coming to life. Not that the festival is local, it’s among the more popular ones in India. “Khajuraho is the land of Shiva,” said CMD Jyotsna Suri, “it’s natural to host the Shivratri here and this is the 12th year.”
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.
