What makes Kevadia an attractive destination for tourists and business travelers

Kevadia, a small town in Narmada District of Gujarat, has, very recently become, a fantastic tourist location to shine brilliantly in the hearts of the travellers. As such it is being promoted massively by Gujarat Tourism.

Since many of us were unaware of this remote village in the Narmada District, it took many years for it to capture the attention of travelers. However, after the Statue of Unity was installed in 2018, the state government’s initiative to promote Kevadia as a lovely tourist destination was successful, and you will now be astounded by Kevadia’s beauty and tranquility.

Kevadia is the home to the massive and beautiful, Sardar Sarovar Dam, tucked away between the majestic Satpura and Vindhyachal ranges. It is without a doubt a paradise of nature and peaceful vistas. It became a focus of spotlight after, the famous Statue of Unity, world’s tallest statue was installed here.

Here are the top 9 tourist attractions in Gujarat’s Kevadia Tourist Circuit.

  • Statue of Unity
  • The State of Art Zoological Park and Safari
  • Carnival Look and Unity Glow Garden
  • Cactus Garden
  • Ekta Cruise
  • Tour-De-khalvani
  • Zarwani Eco-Tourism
  • Children’s Nutrition Park
  • Arogyavan
  • Valley of Flowers

Prime Opportunity

Two new hotels will soon open in Kevadia, Gujarat, India, close to the Statue of Unity, according to the Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL). A contract was struck for the Greenfield Projects with Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL), a key player in the creation of the Statue of Unity. Hotels under the Vivanta and Ginger brands will debut in 2025.

Mr Puneet Chhatwal, Managing director and Chief Executive Officer, IHCL, stated: “IHCL is honored to step foot in Kevadia with its pioneering spirit in building destinations in India. “The Statue of Unity is a representation of how recently India’s experiential travel scene has changed. We are honored to collaborate on this project with Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd. The 150-room Ginger and the 125-room Vivanta will be next to the Statue of Unity. Both hotels will provide a variety of culinary options and spa services. Vivanta will offer conference space to accommodate corporate travelers. The Statue of Unity, the Valley of Flowers, the Zarvani eco-tourism, and the Shoolpaneshwar temple are just a few of the famous attractions in Kevadia. IHCL will have 19 hotels in the Indian state of Gujarat after the addition of these two hotels, with six more under construction.

Final Verdict:

Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), the parent of Taj Hotels, is all set to open two more properties in Kevadia near the Statue of Unity. The company has already opened a hotel named ‘The Gateway Hotel’ and another one called ‘Taj Nature Resort’ is under construction. These resorts will offer picturesque views of the Sardar Sarovar Dam and Narmada River. This expansion by IHCL is part of its strategy to increase its presence in Gujarat where the group currently operates six hotels.
