It all started when Late Mr. Venkatesh Krishna Kamat opened a small restaurant at Mazgaon followed by Krishna Bhawan in Mumbai's Null Bazaar and from then onwards, there was no looking back for him, adding various landmarks in the city consistently.
The Orchid - Asia's first Ecotel:
The Orchid is the flagship brand of the company and was fully operational from September 27th 1997.
It is Asia's first green hotel and was based on the trend of green hotels that were picking up a major chunk of business worldwide (87% of business travelers patronize green hotels).
It has received 79 prestigious international and national environment awards including the Golden Peacock Environment Management Award from his Holiness - the Dalai Lama in Palampur.
This was just the beginning for Dr. Vithal Kamat. His working philosophy based on three D's - Determination, Dedication and Discipline leading to his Destiny to find success has made him embark on journeys to carry the Ecotel torch on a nationwide level.
VITS (formerly known as The Lotus Suites) is a four star Ecotel with 183 rooms including standard rooms, studios and apartments. Like Orchid, VITS follows stringent environment norms.
