Joint Managing Director & CEO

Amruda Nair

As a third generation hotelier, I have been fortunate enough to witness first hand a great deal of changes in the hospitality industry in recent years. As modern technology moved in and more traditional means moved out, I learnt the importance of adapting and responding to change. Now, with Aiana I plan to embrace what I’ve learnt and lead those changes. I want to bring unparalleled value alongside authentic experiences to the smart, lifestyle segment. My goal is to share our Indian-infused, world-class service with the rest of the world.

Aiana’s vision was born out of a shared passion for hospitality between myself and H.E. Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani. Whilst our goal is to create a globally recognised hospitality brand, it’s important to us that along the way, we stay true to our deep rooted values. I’m inspired by the world around me and I’m continuously motivated to inspire others in this way.
It’s vital that we bring a refreshing approach to the market, and this can be found in both our service and our operating philosophy. Our signature style of world-class Indian service is offered alongside authentic experiences and design, inspired by location. This care and attention extends to our environment, colleagues, owners and communities.

I believe in having a pro-active approach to being both environmentally and socially conscious, and this is something that will resonate with our guests’ values. I want to touch the hearts and minds of those who are at one with technology, and are appreciative of an immersive experience. Our guests are experienced travellers, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t expect value for money.

I aspire to instil my long term strategic vision for change through the creation of an honest and authentic lifestyle hospitality brand.
