The humble beginnings of our prestigious hospitality group can be traced back to four decades. Mr. Hasmukh (H.P.) Rama left India to pursue Master of Business Administration in U.S.A. in the year 1969. His professional career commenced as a dishwasher in Howard Johnson motel and soon got promoted to become a waiter. In a span of four years in 1973, he purchased his first property: the 37-room Sunset Motel in Ponoma, California.
His brothers soon joined him to create a family business that has since grown to be among the top 50 Hotel Management companies in the U.S. Over the last 37 years, the Rama family has built and acquired 79 hotels, which operate under top-performing franchise flags such as Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, and Starwood.
The group is driven to be a premier lodging company that promotes open communication, strong values and the attainment of Siddhi: Perfection. With complete dedication and commitment, the Rama family is proud to develop AURO University as a premier educational institution for future generations.
