4GLOBAL OPERATING PARTNERS
SAMHI is a privately owned hotel asset company that specialises in development, acquisition and ownership of branded hotels. SAMHI’s assets are located in prime markets across India which have high barriers to entry and large unaccommodated demand.
Distinguished in the Indian hospitality market due to its Pan India spread, quality of hotels, brands and operators and a rapidly growing portfolio, SAMHI is perhaps the only institutional multi-branded hotel ownership Company of this scale in India, It has therefore attracted global hotel giants such as Marriott and Accor as financial joint venture partners besides being operating partners alongside Hyatt International.
Operating under well recognised brands such as Courtyard by Marriott, Sheraton, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place, Fairfield by Marriott, Four Points by Sheraton and Formule 1, hotels owned by SAMHI benefit from global distribution of these brands, strong loyalty programs and corporate relationships allowing these hotels to have a superior rate penetration.
SAMHI was founded by Ashish Jakhanwala and Manav Thadani, both with immense experience and knowledge of the Indian hospitality industry and counts Sam Zell led Equity International and GTI Capital Group, along with IFC and The Goldman Sachs as its principal shareholders. The unique bandwidth of world class shareholders & management team, operator partnership and a strong portfolio of assets make SAMHI one of the most admired hotel asset companies in India.
SAMHI is one of India's fastest hotel asset companies and derives a unique positioning from its institutional ownership model, experienced leadership and a strong & aligned management team.
It also benefits from strong relationships it has built with global hotel operators, large financial institutions and partners.
