While the Vadodara hotel will be under the Lemon Tree brand, the three hotels in Gurgaon will be under brands Lemon Tree Premier, Lemon Tree and Red Fox. The hotel in Mumbai will be a Lemon Tree, Pandit said.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of it's Mega Sale-2015, a limited period offer that claims to give rooms at Rs 2,015/night across most of its hotels.

The company operates hotels across its three brands--Lemon Tree Premier, which is a upscale brand, Lemon Tree Hotels that caters to midscale segment and Red Fox Hotels that is the economy brand of the company.

Asked about the segment that the company is focusing on for future growth, Pandit said: "The focus is mainly on the domestic travellers. At present, 85 per cent of our guests are from this segment."

Domestic tourism is growing and will further grow as season and off-season lines get blurred, the frequency of travel increases and connectivity even by roads gets better, he added.
