Kenilworth Hotels & Resorts story began in 1969, when our late founder and chairman, Mr. M.S. Bharat, a freedom fighter turned businessman acquired the lease for a 35 key guest house in the bustling metropolis of Kolkata.
Determined to make a mark in the hospitality industry, his hard work and perseverance eventually led to the buy-out the guest house from the original owners. With the support of his son, Mr. Raju Bharat (2nd generation hotelier and current Chairman & Managing Director of the company) they converted the guest house into what is today known as our flagship property, i.e., Kenilworth Hotel, Kolkata – A 101 key four-star hotel spread across 1.5 acres in the heart of Kolkata.
Continuing the legacy, Mr. Raju Bharat took initiative of expanding the brand to other destinations within India. In 1998, he acquired a defunct brownfield property with direct access to the beach in the sunny and tranquil state of Goa. With its own set of challenges, the full-scale restoration of the property took 2 years to complete and finally on 24th December 2000, Kenilworth Resort & Spa, Goa – A 101 key five-star resort spread across 14 acres in South Goa opened its door to customers.
