Himalayan, Aquafina and Bisleri have an unfamiliar rival — hotel-produced bottled water.
Luxe lodging brands have started setting up plants to manufacture glass-bottled water within hotels as they look to reduce their dependence on plastic. While the hotels are aiming at cutting pollution and achieving the goal of improving the environment, the business of leading H2O players is bound to take a hit. Some of the hotels that have invested in bottling units are ITC Windsor Bengaluru, Hyatt Regency Delhi, Taj Exotica Andamans and JW Marriott Delhi. We are testing bottling plants at our Bengaluru and Gurgaon properties through partners who have expertise in clean drinking water production.
