India's Hospitality Giant PRS Oberoi's Demise Marks the End of an Epoch

India's Hospitality Giant PRS Oberoi's Demise Marks the End of an Epoch

Prithvi Raj Singh Oberoi, the revered 94-year-old corporate hotelier known as 'Biki,' passed away on Tuesday, marking the end of an era in India's hospitality industry. As the Chairman Emeritus of The Oberoi Group, he played a pivotal role in reshaping the sector and expanding the renowned chain to encompass 32 hotels, including the Oberoi and Trident brands.

PRS Oberoi, the son of The Oberoi Group's founder, Rai Bahadur MS Oberoi, and the brother of the late Tilak Raj, navigated the ups and downs of the business since 1988. Following his father's footsteps, he contributed significantly to developing the Trident chain of hotels. Despite relinquishing his chairmanship in May of the previous year due to deteriorating health, Oberoi's impact on the industry remained profound.

Born on February 3, 1929, in New Delhi, Oberoi's legacy is described as transcending borders, leaving an indelible mark on the global hospitality landscape. The company, under his leadership, evolved from the inaugural 'The Trident Chennai' in 1988 to become one of India's most reputable hotel entities. Survived by three children, including son Vikramjit Singh Oberoi, who serves as the Managing Director and CEO of EIH Hotels, PRS Oberoi's passing signifies the conclusion of two generations that shaped the Oberoi empire into a hospitality powerhouse.
