India Vegetarian Hotel

Hotel magnates announce the launch of the first five-star, all-vegetarian hotel in India is slated for July.

This week, India’s Bhagwati Banquets & Hotels announced that it would unveil The Bhagwati Hotels, the nation’s first five-star, all-vegetarian hotel in July. The luxury inn located in Surat, Gujarat, India, will include 162 deluxe rooms and eight suites, in addition to ballrooms, banquet halls, conference rooms, and a VIP club. Hotel owners say the decision to open an entirely vegetarian hotel was made after seeing the increasing demand for plant-based foods, especially at special events such as weddings, where a strong emphasis is placed on eating “pure” foods. Known as The Diamond City, Surat is one of the most densely populated cities in the world.
