‘Espire Hospitality Group’ expands footprint in India with the addition of a fresh brand in its portfolio


The novel luxury boutique resort brand ‘ZANA – Luxury Escapes’ presents an all new world at its maiden resort ‘ZANA Lake Resort, Udaipur’

 The swiftly growing Espire Hospitality Group unveils its new resort, ‘ZANA Lake Resort, Udaipur’ on the scenic Udai Sagar Lake. It is the group’s first resort under their newest brand, ‘ZANA – Luxury Escapes’ and this launch marks the group’s entry into India’s luxury boutique resort market. Located just 20 minutes from the Maharana Pratap Airport, ‘ZANA Lake Resort, Udaipur’ is conveniently located close to the key attractions of this ‘Venice of the east’ and yet, far away from the bustle of the city.

Named after the rare purple lily, ‘ZANA’ experience is an escape from the ordinary into a world of indulgence and exclusivity. Blooming across some of the most exquisite locations across the country, ‘ZANA – Luxury Escapes’ offers a whole new world – a world that traces a confluence of unique experiences, modern hospitality, and a service philosophy that can only be defined as the ultimate ‘ZANA Way’.

The language of ZANA luxury is as much about the intangible as it is about the tangible; about experiences that reconnect you with the self and with your loved ones; about moments that linger and last. Be it a desire to escape into solitude or to meet with an adventure that gives you an adrenaline rush, your stay at ZANA has potential for all that and much more.

“We are extremely delighted to debut our new brand ‘ZANA – Luxury Escapes’ in the historic city of Udaipur that displays a robust demand for high-end hospitality from affluent travellers, from around the globe. This opening marks a significant milestone for our group’s expansion in India” said Akhil Arora, Chief Operating Officer, Espire Hospitality Group.

For ‘ZANA – Luxury Escapes’, we aim to create experiences that will be new to the Indian hospitality landscape. The brand concept has been planned after extensive research on what the Indian market currently has to offer and how we can develop a distinctive luxury experience. We are certain that the ZANA experience will give our guests many stories to tell and reasons to return,” he added.
