Bollywood Star Bhumi PednekarMumbai, 19th July 2023: Bollywood Star Bhumi Pednekar has joined hands with Mumbai-based Chrome Asia Hospitality to invest in the group’s first boutique hotel in Goa. Founded by Pawan Shahri, Dhaval Udeshi and Nikita Shahri, Chrome Hospitality has established a strong foothold in Mumbai’s all-day casual-dining space.

With KAIA, Chrome Asia Hospitality will embark on a new journey in the hotel space. Aligned with Bhumi’s ethos of slow living, KAIA by Chrome is specially curated for the traveler who seeks ultimate relaxation and is built on the philosophy of slow living. Commenting on the investment, Bhumi Pednekar, said, “ “As an actor, I have always sought to explore new avenues, even beyond the silver screen. I strongly believe in the power of investments. I place my faith in investing in spaces that create meaningful experiences and KAIA has the power to do just that. Investing in KAIA is a venture that not only aligns with my passion for living life to the fullest, creating unforgettable experiences but also reflects my commitment to responsible hospitality and philosophy of slow living. With this investment, we aspire to curate a haven that combines luxury, comfort, warmth, and cultural immersion. This venture represents my belief in the transformative power of responsible hospitality, where every stay becomes an opportunity for personal growth and meaningful connections. “

Adding on, Pawan Shahri, Co-founder, of Chrome Asia Hospitality, said in a joint statement, “We at Chrome Asia Hospitality are thrilled as we hit two major milestones – one being that of venturing into the boutique hotels space and the second of having Bhumi on board as our investor and supporter for our latest venture- KAIA. This endeavor marks the beginning of an exciting chapter, brimming with opportunities to deliver unparalleled experiences to everyone. With Bhumi’s passion for exceptional experiences and our commitment to delivering novel concepts across formats, we are confident of scaling brand KAIA across destinations. We’re just getting started and we can’t wait to unveil KAIA, Goa in all its glory”
