“It would be fantabulous, if we could carry our home with us while traveling. Service apartments with a host of “homey facilities” make available the awesomeness of being at home.”
Service apartments have emerged as the most comfortable and effective replacement to pricey and inconvenient stays in hotels. Most of the NRIs returning to their homeland for a vacation, family wedding, to arrange their own event or for other get together, prefer staying in a well-furnished and fully serviced residential apartment rather than with their family or in a hotel because of various reasons. These seek quality service, privacy, advantageous location and home-like comfort which a service apartment unfailing promises. Hence, serviced apartments have become the greatly desired accommodations by the NRIs. According to Sekhar Sandhu, Founder, Skyla Serviced Apartment: “Every year, during October to January, SKYLA’s 70 percent occupancy comes from NRI community and they are our repeat customers.”
