Hotels[edit]

The foundations of the Oberoi Group dates back to 1934 when Rai Bahadur Mohan Singh Oberoi, the founder Chairman of the group bought from an Englishman; two properties - The Clarke's in Delhi and The Clarke's in Shimla. In the following years Mr. Oberoi, assisted by his two sons, Tilak Raj Singh Oberoi and Prithvi Raj Singh Oberoi continued the expansion of their group with properties both in India and abroad.

Today, P.R.S.Oberoi is the Chairman of The Oberoi Group and his son, Vikram Oberoi and his nephew, Arjun Oberoi serve in the capacities of Joint Managing Directors at EIH Ltd and EIH Associated Hotels, the two major holding companies of The Oberoi Group.

The Group also operates the The Clarke's in Shimla and the Maidens Hotel, Delhi. These two properties however are not held under the Trident or under the Oberoi brand.
