Indian Hotels’s Q3FY23 is a reflection of all the ‘revenge travel’ that happened. Posting its best quarter ever, the owner of brands like Taj, Vivanta and SeleQtions, posted a consolidated PAT of Rs.383 crore v/s Rs.76 crore (YoY) and Rs.122 crore in Q2FY23; this is more than the entire profit made for FY22, the Covid year. Looks like it has finally got out of the pandemic and back to pre-pandemic days.

Its EBITDA came in at Rs.655 crore, up 90% (YoY), which is its best ever.  Margins were healthy at 37.6%, up by a whopping 719 bps.

The company’s CMD is extremely bullish about the future, saying, “the G20, India hosting the cricket World Cup this year will give us good business. 2023 will be a very strong year for us.”
