We are happy to announce that we have formally launched our service by opening our doors to 100+ hotels across 50+ cities including Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. We had commenced operations back in April this year through a joint venture with the SoftBank Group. Simultaneously we had also announced the appointment of Prasun Choudhary, an OYO founding member who has been instrumental in spearheading a number of global OYO businesses as the Operating Partner for OYO Hotels Japan.
Backed by an innovative business model and technology-led operational capabilities, OYO Hotels Japan, offers convenient and comfortable accommodations to travellers and guests in Japan enabling them to experience #LivingTheGoodLife and creating increased business opportunities for several real estate owners in Japan.
Commenting on the announcement, Prasun Choudhary, Operating Partner, OYO Hotels Japan, said, “We are very excited to launch hotel operations and extend our offering of good quality, beautifully designed, comfortable and ‘value-chic’ accommodations to domestic and international travellers in Japan. The 100+ hotel milestone, in a span of 6 months, is a big moment for us and further fuels our passion to continue to drive growth across the country while delivering quality customer service and empowering asset owners to run a sustainable business.”
We will continue to bring our successful model of combining design, hospitality, and technological expertise, financial acumen and operational capabilities to real estate owners around the world, giving them the ability to get a higher return on investments, access easy financing opportunities, transform their hotels, and offer good quality customer service, thereby significantly increasing occupancy and profitability – in every OYO building. We have over 35,000 of these buildings worldwide. We partner with building owners and further help enhance their overall look and feel which results in improved service quality, performance, returns, and improved customer experience.
We have been known worldwide for our innovative chic offerings that impact the hospitality experiences positively. We are privileged to have the support of the world’s leading investors, including the likes of Airbnb, SoftBank Vision Fund, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Greenoaks Capital, Sequoia India, and Hero Enterprise.
