Mumbai, April 18, 2018: Since its inception in 2017, Urbanpod, India’s first-of-its-kind Pod Hotel has been strengthening its presence in the Indian Hospitality Industry.  With the launch of Urbanpod last year, India witnessed the launch of a ‘new category’ in the hospitality segment.

In the past 1-year, Urbanpod has seen a healthy mix of travellers from both Indian and International markets and have served more than 10,000 guests. With a ‘diverse’ clientele, it has served visitors from over 40-countires across the globe.

Urban pod has bench marked itself with the best in the world and is minimalistic yet sleek & sophisticated with high-tech, self-contained Pods (which are often compared to a space-ship!) and is a modern, upgraded-version to match the comfort of the global audience.

Mr. Hiren Gandhi, Co-founder, Urban pod Pvt. Ltd. said, “Pod Hotels which are popular with global travellers, has slowly but steadily begun to pick up steam with the Indian travellers too. The highlight would be, we have witnessed a large number of 30 to 45 year olds, opting for this innovative concept! In addition, a size able number of single-women travellers and business-women preferred the safety, hygiene & comfort of the exclusive Ladies Pods section.” Mr. Gandhi also added “Our Pod Hotel has won the accolades from the Industry for being the top-rated and the best boutique hotel of the year. Consolidating our current position, we plan to expand to other cities soon”.

Urbanpod that promises a smart-stay option for travellers, have created value for the customers by offering pocket-friendly luxury & services like any top-notch Hotel and done away with the extravagant-frills while focusing on the things that really matter to a modern-day traveller on the lookout for a stopover. The new-age travellers (both business & leisure), single travellers, group travellers (study-related group, researchers and sports), backpackers and so on, typically in the age-group of 20 to 50 have stayed at Urbanpod, thus far.

The ones that have been initially sceptical, have experienced the concept first-hand and have accepted it and absolutely loving it, especially, the new-age travellers! This indicates that Indians have definitely become more open to newer formats, ideas, trends & experiences.

This unique-concept of accommodation (the way the Pods are set-up), facilitates opportunities to network & socialize with other guests staying at the hotel and encourages the whole aspect of community-building & shared-living, a lifestyle that is catching up in a big-way, across the world. This unique-concept has also grown to be aspirational and a must-try option during travel!In a sense, Urbanpod has helped redefine the concept of ‘shared-living’.
