A day dreamer, Himmat left the corporate world in 2007 when he was Chief Operating
Officer- India & South Asia – Kuoni Destination Management. He wanted to pursue his
decades old dream in creating a hospitality brand which defied tradition and proved that
small can be beautiful and profitable.
The Tree of Life Resorts & Hotels today operate in Jaipur, Varanasi and Binsar Wildlife
Sanctuary, with Agra and Goa under development. A second brand – Tree Leaf –
manages properties in Marari and Udaipur, with two others under development.
A hotel management graduate, he started his career in 1978, with the Taj Group of
Hotels and then moved to tourism in 1981. Most of his career was with SITA / Kuoni
Travel, which included postings in Frankfurt, London and Paris for a decade. Other
than his resorts, he is a Facebook junkie and also enjoys spending time with Jugnu –
his 6 years old Labrador, who is also the mascot of the Tree of Life.
