  4. 4. Domestic Chain of Hotels… <ul><li>THE LEELA GROUP OF HOTELS </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Hotel Leela Venture Ltd is an Indian hotel company, currently with four deluxe hotels, located in Mumbai, Bangalore, Kovalam and Goa. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The company was founded by Captain C.P. Krishnan Nair. </li></ul><ul><li>Capt. Nair served in the Indian National Army under Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. </li></ul><ul><li>He helped his father-in-law in the latter's garment export business. </li></ul><ul><li>While visiting various countries, he realized the need for a luxury hotel chain in India that could measure up to international standards. </li></ul><ul><li>He went ahead and launched the first hotel in Mumbai as Hotel Leela, in 1988. </li></ul><ul><li>The group has then gone ahead to develop fine hotels across the other cities. </li></ul><ul><li>Behind every institution lies the vision of an individual. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>This belief, forged to a large extent during Capt. Nair’s early years as a freedom fighter in India’s fight for Independence, finds expression in each of the group’s endeavors. </li></ul>HISTORY OF THE HOTEL
  8. 8. <ul><li>The Leela Kempinski, Mumbai and The Leela Kempinski Goa are two of the best hotels in India, and have also won considerable international acclaim. For this to have been achieved in 12 short years is nothing short of remarkable. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Recently in 2001 Capt. Nair fulfilled his longstanding dream of constructing a palace hotel in the garden city of Bangalore. </li></ul><ul><li>The Leela Palace Kempinski, Bangalore is built in art deco style recreating the grandeur of The Mysore Maharajas Palace. It is set amidst 8 acres of landscaped garden and waterfalls. It is a palace with the heart of a modern hotel. Its 254 rooms are opulently furnished and are befitting royalty. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Achieving these levels of excellence has been the result of a three pronged business strategy, best described in the words of Capt. Nair. </li></ul><ul><li>Fundamental to our business is the all pervasive Indian tradition of hospitality. Secondly, we honour the cultural heritage of India. Lastly, we operate on the basis of world class technology, backed up fully by the commitment of the staff. </li></ul>

  88. 93. <ul><li>As the adage says, “the difference is in the details”. </li></ul><ul><li>Those details are the charge of the Housekeeping Department. </li></ul><ul><li>As one of the most integral departments within the hotel, the Housekeeping Department is responsible for the immaculate care and upkeep of all guest rooms and public spaces. </li></ul><ul><li>Individuals who excel in Housekeeping Departments have an eye for detail and a commitment to the training, development and motivation of a diverse group of talented employees. </li></ul><ul><li>A consistent product - both in our public spaces and in our guest rooms - has always played a vital role in the incredible success of the Wyndham Brand. </li></ul><ul><li>The Housekeeping Department has played a major role in ensuring this product quality. </li></ul><ul><li>As one of the largest departments within the Hotel, the Housekeeping Department presents an interesting challenge: how do you motivate, train and develop a diverse group of employees to produce a consistently exceptional product? </li></ul><ul><li>The Housekeeping Manager has the responsibility for all aspects of the Housekeeping Department, from the hiring of employees to the maintenance of operational expenses at or below budget. </li></ul><ul><li>Interviewing, training, motivating, ordering, receiving and monitoring product quality all play a large role in the typical day of a Housekeeping Manager. </li></ul><ul><li>In a competitive hotel market, it is service and cleanliness that really make an impact on our guests and determine whether they will return. </li></ul>

  94. 100. Advantages and Disadvantages of Property Management System… <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced staff - our initial estimates included the need for three staff members in our operations support group to maintain local area networks in all of our locations and the company wide area network.  Using the ICA approach, we have one staff member responsible for support.  We may have to add a part-time assignment later this year. </li></ul><ul><li>Simplified support - with ICA, the software installation, upgrade and support effort is confined to the central computer room.  One process impacts every workstation on the network at the same time.  If we have servers in each location, software installation and upgrades can be very complex.  Updating systems would take a long time, since multiple locations have to be managed, either locally or remotely.  </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced cost - in our situation, the necessary upgrade or replacement of hardware and software licenses was a major concern.  We estimated that we would have had to replace approximately _ of our servers, workstations, network software and desktop software if we chose the local area network design.  With the ICA approach, we have eliminated the need for servers at the local level and the need to replace most of our equipment.  The savings exceeded $500,000.  For example, the network computing workstations we are purchasing are less than half the cost of a personal computer.  Yet, on our network, each has all the functionality of a PC. </li></ul><ul><li>Years 2000 compliance - with the central system Year 2000 complaint, most of these issues are addressed at one time.  Our investigation showed we had a very complex problem bringing our disparate systems up to Y2K compliance.  With all software operating centrally, Y2K issues are handled only once. </li></ul><ul><li>Single point of failure - with the ICA approach, a single point of failure is minimized or eliminated.  For example, if any server or several servers in the server farm fails, the rest of the servers will dynamically pickup the load.  If the network fails, the routers have dial backup capability to reestablish a connection to the central system (although this will be at slower speeds that the dedicated network). </li></ul><ul><li>The Internet - network computing can take advantage of the power and availability of the Internet, making the setup of a network much easier and faster than previous networking approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Central database - while the other advantages deal with technology, this advantage (one of the most important from our point of view) deals with information.  Having a central, integrated database has significant competitive advantages.  A distributed database is much more difficult to administer and consolidate effectively. </li></ul>
  95. 101. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Availability of ICA software   - while ICA has been available for several years, not all software developers have provided versions of their products which use this technology.  Many systems can not use ICA effectively without a version specifically written for its capabilities and intricacies. </li></ul><ul><li>Possible network failure - if the network fails, the entire company is impacted.  To minimize this possibility, we took several steps.  First, we use several companies to provide our network services, minimizing our risk if a single network cloud fails.  Second, we have a professional network management company monitoring the system 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.  If any location fails, we are guaranteed 4-hour time to fully restore service.  Third, we equipped each office with dial backup capabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning curve - it will take programmers and network staff some time to understand the capabilities and requirements of ICA.  Technology staff with ICA knowledge may be difficult to find, but as more products are brought to the market, this situation should be resolved. </li></ul>
  96. 102. <ul><li>Conclusion: </li></ul><ul><li>Network computing is in its infancy.  Interesting enough, many years ago network computing was almost a standard.  Mainframe computers were in most major companies and terminals to these computers were standard equipment.  </li></ul><ul><li>A large team of data communications specialists managed vast dedicated and costly networks.  Then came the personal computer and all that changed.  Computing power was moved to the desktop and network architectures were altered.  </li></ul><ul><li>However, by moving the computing power to the desktop, a new set of challenges was created.  Programming and supporting this new distributed approach to computing often replaced one set of problems with another and required significantly more capital than many managers anticipated.  </li></ul><ul><li>This new approach to network computing, combining the best of both worlds, is a viable option for companies looking to improve their information flow and reduce costs at the same time.  Although the design is relatively new, it offers enough advantages that it should be seriously considered as companies reexamine their information requirements for the next millennium. </li></ul>

Role Play… <ul><li>My Role Play states that : </li></ul><ul><li>Do a booking for a wedding party who require 50 rooms for 3 nights, what are the finer details I will look into </li></ul><ul><li>Guest is dining at the restaurant and out of no where a rat runs over her feet and she sees it, she gets up from the table and is very annoyed, speaks to the duty manager, the guest is doubting if the hotel is clean as per standard norms. </li></ul>
  99. 105. <ul><li>Answer to a. </li></ul><ul><li>I will first enquire for the type of rooms that the guest wants for the wedding party. </li></ul><ul><li>I will also see if the banquet hall is not occupied on the day of the wedding. </li></ul><ul><li>As it is a big group I will accommodate them in the given rooms. </li></ul><ul><li>If they are not satisfied, then I will provide some discounts to the entire group. </li></ul>

  102. 108. Self Development & Effective Communication <ul><li>In our Personality Development assignment, we had been given a task to visit any community service place. </li></ul><ul><li>On that basis we had organized a small program in a old age home-Krishna Prabhu located in Pune. </li></ul><ul><li>It was a good experience that I have ever had in my life. </li></ul><ul><li>There I saw many types of personalities, some were introvert, some ambivert & some extrovert. </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at these personalities it gave a motivation. </li></ul><ul><li>And from then my life was changed to a certain extent. </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at this scenario, it has taught me whatever happens in life we should not lose hopes & always be a goal getter in life. </li></ul><ul><li>This project has motivated me to associate with people who are great achievers in life. </li></ul><ul><li>I personally feel that this project will definitely relate to my job as I have learnt to work in a team, cooperate with the team members & treat everyone equally. </li></ul>
  103. 109. <ul><li>ADVANTAGES : - </li></ul><ul><li>Hospitality industry comprising of hotel and catering industries is the fastest growing industry in the world. It is a key component of the travel industry and is one of the major employers. </li></ul><ul><li>In the Indian context too the sector has witnessed booming growth in the past decade or two especially after the opening of the economy. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in foreign tourist arrivals, MNC’s foraying into India, demand - supply mismatch getting closer, rise in Occupancy rates and strong recovery of the Indian economy. </li></ul><ul><li>Employment opportunities - The industry is still evolving in our country and has a huge employment potential. In fact, supply of trained manpower in this sector is far below the demand. </li></ul><ul><li>Paid more for extra work. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in the market share: India's share in international tourism and hospitality market is expected to increase over the long-term. </li></ul><ul><li>New budget and star hotels are being established. Moreover, foreign hospitality players are heading towards Indian markets </li></ul>ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES OF HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY
  104. 110. <ul><li>With the advantages come the disadvantages too!! </li></ul><ul><li>For Employees - Long and Odd Hours - Many hotels are around-the-clock, 24-hour operations and staffs are required to work varied shifts and extended hours. </li></ul><ul><li>Shortage of skilled employees - The hospitality industry has failed to retain good professionals. Due to competition in hotel employee tends to change their jobs to find superior one. </li></ul><ul><li>Shortage of rooms - The hotel industry is facing heavy shortage of rooms. </li></ul><ul><li>Customer expectations - As India is emerging as a destination on the global travel map, expectations of customers are rising. The companies have to focus on customer loyalty and repeat purchases. Prices of each product will rise. </li></ul>
  105. 111. CAREER IN HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY <ul><li>20 years from now, I see myself very successful in the hospitality industry. </li></ul><ul><li>May be a manager of the most renowned hotel first in India and then worldwide. </li></ul><ul><li>An experience will provide me lavish life ahead. </li></ul><ul><li>For this, I will have to work hard as this career is not so easy. </li></ul><ul><li>Working in a 24/7 situation and also there is assurance of job after a recession in the world market. </li></ul><ul><li>There are also life threatening situations like terror attacks like the recent ones in the Taj and the Oberoi in Mumbai. </li></ul><ul><li>But overcoming this, will be a great helpful asset. </li></ul>
  106. 112. Future of Domestic Hospitality Sector <ul><li>Hotel industry depends largely upon the foreign tourist arrivals further classified into business travelers (around 65% of the total foreign tourists) and leisure travelers. </li></ul><ul><li>The following figures show that business as well as the leisure travelers (both domestic and international) formed major clientele for hotels in 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>Over the last two years, the hotel industry has seen higher growth rates due to greater number of tourist arrivals, higher occupancy rate (being around 75% in FY'06) and significant increase in average room rate (ARR). </li></ul><ul><li>The major factors contributing to this growth include stable economic and political conditions, booming service industry, FDI inflow, infrastructure development, emphasis on tourism by the central as well as state governments and tax rationalization initiatives to bring down the tax rates in line with the international levels. </li></ul><ul><li>There is no disputing that India is one of the most dynamic and diverse tourism and hospitality destinations on the global map. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether it was a sudden surge of domestic and international real estate companies in hotels, international companies riding to town with their bouquet of brands, or Indian hotel majors shocking the global hospitality scene with their mergers and acquisitions, 2006 saw India shift its gear to the turbo mode. </li></ul>
