Economical and Ecological - The world’s first net zero premium value hotel brand


Eco Hotels aims to become a leading owner, developer and asset manager of three star premium and economy brands in the BRICS and N11 economies. India, with its vast opportunities for growth is the first target market.

It will operate under two brands - the Eco®, a 3-star premium brand and Ecolodge®, a 2-star budget hotel brand. These hotels will deliver superior guest services in a market facing a severe shortage of rooms within the mid-scale and budget categories.

  • Eco Hotels has developed a proprietary franchise model called EBOT (Enterprise, Build, Operate and Trade) offering end to end, asset and hotel management solutions.
  • Strategically placed to capitalise on a steadily increasing trend of responsible travel.
  • The company has operated its first prototype Ecolodge in Kochi, Kerala, India since 2012. The intention is to increase operating inventory in excess of 15,000 rooms over 10 years by way of increasing its portfolio to over 200 hotels.
  • Initially, the company will target assets in the western and northern regions of India - Mumbai, Goa, Pune and Delhi NCR.


The hotel industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world both in terms of size and impact. Eco Hotels will achieve net-zero status by ensuring that each asset, as well as its operations, achieves pre-set sustainable standards. The focus is to roll out green and sustainable hospitality without compromising on standards of guest experience.
