Rajasthan hotels


Ensuring guest satisfaction is an on-going challenge for Rajasthan hotels and resorts across the world. Fortunately, in India, our culture has imbibed in us a spirit of ‘Athiti Devo Bhava’ which literally translates to Guest is God! With such upbringing it is no surprise that some of the best hotels & resorts in the world are found in India.

However, in addition to our natural tendency to treat the guests with utmost respect and attention, some refinement might be needed in a person’s communication verbal and non-verbal. These training modules are intended to do just that without the burden of long lectures of cumbersome theoretical concepts.
