Jimmy became a hotelier as he always believed that there is a gap in the hospitality industry, he concentrated on the basics, such as the availability of 24 hr service, plus he wanted to include luxury with an element of design and surprise. The resort also consists of India's First Largest Extreme Adventure Park. This is how the 'Gen Next Hospitality' is created.
The 3 brand resorts, he created in Della are Della Luxury Resort, Camp Della Resort and Della Adventure Resort. These resorts are created with two characteristics: an obsession for luxury and uniqueness. Everything one sees and touches in the Della Resorts is personally designed by Jimmy. Nothing was left to chance: the Della workshop is staffed by expert craftsmen of various expertise. He made sure that Della Resorts bear no resemblance to the conventional 'commissioned' resort. This can be seen immediately in the structure of the entire resorts, and in the minutest of detail. He always wants his guest to relax and replenish, to the resort cocoons with attentions and amenities that erase the outside world and minister every senses of the guest, with the view, of the resorts unique design.
He also wants his guest to experience, round the clock service, which most resorts around the world shut their fine dining restaurants, swimming pools, spas and other recreational areas by mid night or even earlier. At Della resorts Jimmy has resolved to change this and come with a unique approach to resort luxury which was to extend the experience for 24 Hours. Here he has dedicated an entire building '24 HOUR HUB' catering several of the services as 24 Hour Fine Dine Restaurant, 24 Hour Della Spa, 24 Hour Salon, 24 Hour Fitness Centre, 24 Hour Swimming Pool & Lounge and 24 Hour Souvenirs & More.
