OBEROI HOTELS & RESORTS
PROFILE & PHILOSOPHY
Oberoi Hotels & Resorts operates 22 Hotels and Resorts in 6 countries. Oberoi Hotels & Resorts is founded on the belief that the guest is everything. This philosophy is evident in every one of our people and manifested most visibly in the sincere personal care and attention that is afforded every guest. While it is true that Oberoi’s exceptional properties, accommodations and facilities contribute greatly to the esteem in which we are held, we measure our success by the value of the human interaction practiced by our people and deeply felt by our guests.
To this day, we at Oberoi Hotels & Resorts still practice the most simple and uncommon of operational philosophies that began with Rai Bahadur M.S. Oberoi, Founder Chairman, The Oberoi Group himself and now echoed by his son and current chairman Mr. P.R. S. Oberoi: The guest is everything. Our joy comes from ensuring each is seen and valued as a person, a friend, a family member who has come to stay. This is present in every gesture through words spoken or unspoken, in ways that are obvious and in ways that are quietly respectful of one’s time and privacy. You will be hard pressed to find properties as beautiful as ours or restaurants, guest rooms and facilities that are as exceptional. However, these are not what give Oberoi Hotels & Resorts its incomparable reputation. What our guests speak about most is that singular experience of being truly seen, heard and understood. Something no other hotel or resort can emulate. The astonishing effect one feels from an act, a gesture, a word; that is Heart. Felt.
