Speaking at the launch Mr. Rattan Keswani, Deputy Managing Director, Lemon Tree Hotels and Director, Carnation Hotels Pvt.

This is also our first partnership with Sandal Suites Pvt. Ltd., one that we hope to see grow in strength in the coming years.”
“The launch of Sandal Suites is in response to the growing demand for comfortable and convenient extended stay accommodation options for business and IT professionals in our vicinity. It is the only upscale accommodation available within an 8 km catchment and is the perfect address for those looking for a “home away from home” – be it business travellers, project teams or relocating families”, he continued.
