New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) Construction major Lavasa Corp and ITC’s subsidiary Fortune Park Hotels Friday announced the opening of a 60-room upscale hotel, Dasve, in Maharashtra’s Lavasa township.
The Lavasa project, spread across 12,500 acres near Pune, is being developed by Lavasa Corp, a Hindustan Construction group company.
“The new ITC hotel is a key milestone and a first step towards setting up world-class hospitality facilities at Lavasa,” Lavasa Corp chairman Ajit Gulabchand said in a statement released here.

“ITC also has plans to build and own landmark Fortune Hotels in the key gateway cities of Bengaluru, Kolkata and Coimbatore and subsequently in other key destinations,” Verma said.
