The company was founded by Captain C.P. Krishnan Nair. Capt. Nair served in the Indian National Army under Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. He helped his father-in-law in the latters garment export business. While visiting various countries, he realized the need for a luxury hotel chain in India that could measure up to international standards. He went ahead and launched the first hotel in Mumbai as Hotel Leela, in 1988. The group has then gone ahead to develop fine hotels across the other cities. Behind every institution lies the vision of an individual. In Capt. Nair’s case, this vision has flowered, given his unshakeable belief in India’s ability to compete with the best in the world as an equal.
This belief, forged to a large extent during Capt. Nair’s early years as a freedom fighter in India’s fight for Independence. he Leela Kempinski, Mumbai and The Leela Kempinski Goa are two of the best hotels in India, and have also won considerable international acclaim. In fact, the Leela Kempinski, Mumbai has received many rewards for being the best 5 star deluxe hotel in India, and The Leela Kempinski Goa voted the best luxury beach resort in India. Recently in 2001 Capt. Nair fulfilled his longstanding dream of constructing a palace hotel in the garden city of Bangalore. The Leela Palace Kempinski, Bangalore is built in art deco style recreating the grandeur of The Mysore Maharajas Palace. The newest addition The Leela Kovalam is Kerala’s largest resort, built on a rock face cradled between two wide sweeping beaches with a stunning view of the famous Kovalam coastline. Achieving these levels of excellence has been the result of a three pronged business strategy, best described in the words of Capt. Nair.
