In conversation with Pavankumar Ramanand Yadav
Chairman, Dream Leisure Club, Ahmedabad
Pavan Yadav is the Chairman of the Yash Group of Companies which is head-quartered in Ahmedabad. He is often described as a serial entrepreneur having set up many businesses over the last 20 years - primarily in the hospitality industry. He has personally driven the growth and success of the group and helped individual resorts work towards international service standards.
Under Pavan’s leadership, the group provides travel support services to more than 500 corporates and individuals covering multiple aspects of travel. Their log book currently displays 45 lakh hotel bookings, 10 lakh flight bookings, 5 lakh railway bookings, and 3,500 cruise bookings. (These are not just numbers – each transaction translating into happy and satisfied customers.)
One project that Pavan likes to talk about is a new group venture: Dream Leisure Club Private Limited. Based on the timeshare model, Dream Leisure Club addresses the leisure and luxury segment in the industry.
We’d like to do two things in this interview with Pavankumar: Give our readers information on The Dream Leisure Club, and welcome The Yash Resort to Airda’s community as our newest member.
Here’s our first question to Pavankumar.
Could you give us an overview of your new group venture - The Dream Leisure Club?
The Dream Leisure Club is a good example of a successful chain of resorts in the country, working on the timeshare or vacation ownership model. At The Dream Leisure Club, we offer you a really wide choice of destinations across the country – each resort offering its own unique basket of vacation experiences.
Our long-term membership plans ensure that you will always have a pleasant stay at our resorts with high standards of hospitality and customer experience – irrespective of peak or non-peak booking times in the year.
Our plans allow you to exchange, rent, sell, or gift your vacation week – offering convenience and flexibility year after year.
Welcoming The Yash Resort from your chain – our newest member at AIRDA. Tell us more about it…
The Yash Resort is a boutique resort (in a 3.74 acre spread) nestling in the foothills of Mount Abu. Visually, it’s an artist’s delight with inspiration from Rajasthani fort architecture. The setting is just as beautiful, where a tranquil river flows nearby amidst lush green vegetation. It can be a vacation beyond the ordinary for our guests, their friends and families.
Mornings at the resort can be pleasant and refreshing – a pleasant awakening in the company of graceful peacocks dancing to their own morning ragas. Evenings at the resort can give you peace of mind in a calm and tranquil setting.
What facilities do you offer guests at The Yash Resort?
We have four “Pool View” rooms (of around 350 sft) - and as the name suggests, they offer a beautiful view of the blue expanse of our resort pool. We also have 14 “Mountain View” rooms (again around 350 sft) offering a delightful view of the Mount Abu range.
Pangat is our multi-cuisine restaurant at the resort – offering pure vegetarian fare. This is a 30-cover restaurant with an extremely customer-focused team that includes some very senior chefs. Breakfast at Pangat is complimentary – our way of saying a cheerful good morning to you, with a range of options.
