Gaurav Sarin's primary goal as the new Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Miraya Hotel Management is to further develop Vantage Hospitality Group's Value Inn Worldwide® and Value Hotel Worldwide® brands throughout India.


Vantage Hospitality, a top 10 global hotel company with over 1,200 properties, gave Miraya the exclusive right to develop its international brands in India when it entered into a master license agreement with the company earlier this year.

Sarin is a leader in the international hospitality industry, most recently serving as the head of operations for Best Western India. He was instrumental in driving the growth of the brand nearly 300% in a short amount of time. His goal is to grow Value Inns & Hotels India to 100 hotels within the next 5-7 years.

"We are very excited to have Gaurav heading up our expansion in India," said Bill Hanley, Vantage's Group President of International Development. "There is tremendous opportunity and demand in India for brands like Value Inn & Hotels India and Gaurav has the industry knowledge, expertise and drive to make a big impact in a short amount of time."

The Value Inns and Value Hotels will provide moderately priced lodging, and most properties will offer food and beverage services and banquet rooms for weddings and events. Guests will enjoy consistent quality and exceptional service at each hotel, while owners will benefit from Vantage's state-of-the-art, global reservation system powered by Sabre Hospitality Solutions, as well as its global resources that have helped make Vantage one of the progressive hotel companies in the world. Miraya will provide additional regionally based resources, emulating Vantage's renowned owner support and revenue-generating opportunities.

The Value Hotel Worldwide brand is also currently growing in South Korea, while Vantage has other brands located internationally in Indonesia, Canada and Mexico.
