Sahara Star, the flagship hotel of Sahara India Pariwar in Mumbai, has attained prime position by capturing 15 per cent more than its fair market share as per STR Global Report. The STR Global Report is an analysis of various data provided by five-star chain hotels in the city. The analysis of these figures has lead to the conclusion that Sahara Star has highest revenue per available room (RevPAR) of Rs 7,000.

Expedia, one of the world’s largest online booking website awarded Hotel Sahara Star with Insider Select Award- 2010 based on more than one million hotel reviews submitted by travellers across the world.

Rajesh Mohan, Head of Strategy, Hotel Sahara Star said, “Under the dynamic leadership of Vivek Kumar, CEO, Hotel Sahara Star, we have adopted to dynamic revenue management system in order to maximise revenue on high occupancy dates. The reported, phenomenal occupancy rate recorded by STR Global, adds to the hotel’s image of luxury and comfort. We aim to follow this rising trend of RevPAR and consistently maintain a respectable standing in the city.”

Manish Sodhi, Head of Operations, Hotel Sahara Star said, “We are proud to be at the top position and we will continue with our efforts to strive for more. This recognition gives us renewed confidence and we hope to leverage on this and continue to outperform our competition. Besides this, our team is constantly focused on the smaller details of guest service and comfort as we firmly believe that if the smaller details are taken care of, the bigger details automatically fall into place. The company also has a strong sense of conviction and constantly trains department heads for further efficiency in human management as it takes precedence over business management in hospitality. It is with this firm belief that we have achieved the Expedia Insider’s Select Award and a high rating on trip advisor, both of which are international benchmarks for guest service and overall experience.”
