Lemon Tree Hotels hopes to attract gamblers from neighbouring India since there will be a casino beside the new property in Biratnagar.
Nepal.- India’s Lemon Tree Hotels has announced that it has gained permission to operate a hotel in Nepal’s industrial hub of Biratnagar, and that a casino is being built beside the property.
The hotel, which will be the third Lemon Tree-branded property in Nepal, will feature around 80 rooms and suites, as well as multiple restaurants, a spa swimming pool and a fitness centre.
The company said that a casino is being built close to the property. Lemon Tree hopes that will make the hotel a draw for visitors from India since casino gambling is largely prohibited in India.
Lemon Tree deputy managing director, Rattan Keswani, said in a statement: “Nepal is not just a country with which we, as a nation, have close personal ties, but is also a region that we feel holds immense business and tourism potential, with its scenic locales and stunning mountains.
“The planned casino, which will be built adjacent to the hotel, will be an added USP and provide an exclusive offering for our guests.”
The operator of the casino has not yet been revealed.
