Right from the very beginning, Mana Hotels has ensured that all its decisions are well thought and meaningful. The management of the newly launched hotel chain has ensured that their main focus has been utmost client satisfaction and socially responsible actions. In tune with this mantra, is Mana Hotel’s decision to use products made by NGOs that work towards helping various underprivileged sections of society.
It is from such organisations, namely Kadam and SASHA, that Mana Hotels has sourced many of its decor elements for its newly launched property in Ranakpur. Both organisations work towards creating new and sustainable employment opportunities for the vastly rural population in India at the grassroots level. Using local resources and local skills, the products thus conceived and produced carry a reflection of the area’s culture and showcase India’s diversity. Their ultimate aim is to set up small/medium scale industries within the rural spaces to reduce the migration of the uneducated rural youth to urban centres which result in evils like urban slum dwelling, unemployment and crime.
In the words of CEO, Rohan Rajgarhia, “A lot of decorative items used in the rooms at Mana Ranakpur have been made by NGO’s. This was a deliberate effort as a part of our CSR strategy. By retaining the branding of the NGO’s, we are offering a unique marketing platform to these organizations which are providing livelihood to lesser privileged sections of society. The craftsmanship of these artisans has already caught the attention of some of the house guests at Mana Ranakpur and our onsite staff has been trained to divert all such queries to the marketing staff at these NGO’s.”
Mana @ Ranakpur opened its doors to guests at the beginning of November and has since received raving reviews. The resort sprawls on 3.5 acres of lush land in the heart of Rajasthan, along the banks of a seasonal river. With 40 rooms in the hotel block and 9 luxurious and private villas, the hotel is also fully equipped with multi-cuisine restaurants, a spa, sport facilities and an entertainment centre. Mana @ Ranakpur is the ideal destination for all those who are looking for a quite vacation away from the hustle bustle of city life.
