The Palms, slated for opening this month, is claimed to be the second in the country to be a part of the Great Hotels chain after Taj Exotica, Goa. It comprises 116 super luxury villas and facilities such as theme restaurants, spa and lounge.

It offers marketing alliances through the Great Hotels and Special Hotels of the World, which has 260 top-end hotels and resorts in its chain.
The Palms is the second hotel in the Royal Palms Group. The first hotel is a 237-room, five-star set-up, also in Goregaon. It has a tie-up with Park Plaza of the Carlson Group. “The Park Plaza Royal Palms has generated revenues of Rs 130 crore in two years. From The Palms also we are expecting revenues of upwards of Rs 75 crore in the first year,” Dilawar Nensey, joint managing director, Royal Palms, stated.
