Brij Hotels, a distinguished collection of boutique hotels, has announced the successful closure of a 4 million Series A round led by the Manipal Education & Medical Group (MEMG) Family Office, with strategic participation from prominent investors including Abhay Jain, Abhiroop Jayanthi (MD of Bain Capital), Rajendra Rao, and Prashant Deshpande. This investment marks a significant milestone for Brij Hotels, aiming to utilize the funds for strategic expansion and further strengthen its presence in the competitive hospitality industry.

The investment comes at a time when the Indian consumer landscape is evolving, with guests seeking unique experiences that blend luxury with local cultural immersion.

We believe that under the leadership of Udit & Anant, the Brij team is creating a unique company in leisure travel.”

Brij Hotels’ portfolio includes eight operational hotels at key tourist destinations, dedicated to creating an intimate connection between luxury and locale by championing a commitment to sustainability through its unique zero-kilometer concept, minimizing carbon footprints and environmental impact. 75% of the hotel staff are locally sourced and trained from where the hotels are situated, reflecting their commitment towards community engagement and empowerment.
