Market Marvels: Rishi Sachdev, managing director, Shiva Hotels


In 2003, after a successful career in the city, Rishi launched his first London hotel under a Marriott franchise. From this promising start, growth followed rapidly and Shiva Hotels was born.

With a strong understanding of the market, entrepreneurial focus and excellence in hotel management, Shiva Hotels grew to 13 properties under franchises from IHG, Wyndham and Best Western. In 2008 it became the first hotel group in the UK to sign a strategic development agreement with Hilton.

2020 will see Rishi launch a new luxury hotel brand, with Middle Eight and The Guardsman to open this year.

With prime central London sites in Marylebone, Soho, Covent Garden and Holborn, these new hotels will offer a complete lifestyle experience. Industry-leading interior designers will ensure exceptional style and comfort. Stand out features include rooftop bars and swimming pools as well as a diverse array of food and beverage options.

This new venture is born of Rishi’s passion for the hotel industry and his desire to pioneer a new philosophy in the luxury lifestyle hotel market. One that marries profit with purpose.
