The Google brand has been used to promote its hotels and resorts in India, particularly in the Indian cities of Chennai and Bengaluru.
Google’s hotels in India are seen as among the top 10 in the world.
In its latest attempt to make a splash in India and in particular the country’s south coast, the search giant is now targeting the hotel market with a new initiative dubbed “Pet Hotels in India”.
Google’s pet hotels are meant to be similar to hotels that have been created in other cities around the world, including in Sydney, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Singapore.
But the company is also trying to create its own niche, using the hotels as a stepping stone for the company to expand further into other countries, including the United States.
For the first time, Google is targeting pet hotels with a “Pet in India” campaign.
The company said it is aiming to “help make pet tourism in India a reality”, but that it wants to build on the “existing pet hotel infrastructure” in the country, which is a “critical” part of the project.
Google’s Pet in India campaign will include “a full-service pet-friendly hotel” at its first location in the state of Andhra Pradesh, where it has built out a pet-themed resort.
Google hopes to have at least 10 of its hotels open by 2019, and plans to open two more by 2020.
The other hotel is planned for 2022, though Google is yet to specify the dates for those.
Pet Hotel in India has been launched with a tagline that says: “The Pet Hotel in India is a luxury resort for pets.
We are committed to making the pet experience in India one of the top experiences in the World.”
The campaign will also include a “pet-friendly” restaurant, pet food station and “pets’ friendly” entertainment venues.
The first Pet in Delhi is scheduled to open by March.
Google is also looking to expand its operations in the region.
“We are planning to expand our presence in Andhra and Tamil Nadu, which are key cities in India’s pet-oriented tourism sector,” a Google spokesperson told The Times Of India.
Google has already launched its own pet-centric pet-focused hotels in Singapore and Dubai, and is currently expanding its presence in the UAE.
In the past, Google has launched its pet-driven travel business in China.
But it has since shut down those operations.
“Pet hotels are an integral part of our vision for a better, more connected world,” a spokesperson said in an email to The Times.
“Google is committed to providing a world-class experience for our pet customers in hotels, restaurants, and other venues across the world.”
