Google has signed a deal to sell its hotel suites at India’s most expensive hotels, including the world’s most luxurious, for a whopping $2,300 a night.
Google booked an average of $2.2 million a night for the three-day, three-night contract with Indian hotel giant Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) and Indian hotel company The Hindustan Times reported on Wednesday.
Google’s Google Hotel Suite at the Indira Ghat in Mumbai is the most popular hotel in India.
Google has also signed deals with several other Indian cities, including Ahmedabad, New Delhi and Bengaluru.
Google said the deals were designed to “create more value for Indian travelers and their families”.
Indira Gandhi airport has a capacity of 2.6 million people and it’s the second most-populated airport in the country after New Delhi’s.
Google said the hotel deals were part of the company’s “New India” initiative, which includes investments in infrastructure, infrastructure, and digital transformation.
Indira Ghot was also the first Indian city to open its first Google Campus in January 2017.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said Google’s goal is to create a world-class shopping and dining destination in India, and the hotel deal is part of that mission.
“Our ambition is to connect people and cities around the world and provide the best experiences in a new way,” Pichay told reporters at a press conference earlier this month.
“The Indira Gandhian Hotel is a perfect example of how we are trying to reach this goal.”
Google has been aggressively expanding its global reach through its acquisition of mobile phone company Motorola, a deal valued at $12.5 billion.
Pichai said Google is now in “greater and greater control” over Google Maps, and that Google is building “a new business model” in the transportation and logistics space.
Google was acquired for $3.3 billion in 2014 by Google parent Alphabet.
