Clarks Amer Jaipur despite all the competition, the team over the past three decades has continued to keep Clarks as one of the premium 5-star hotels in Rajasthan. The hotel has always promoted and supported Rajasthani culture and tourism. “Clarks has since its inception always positioned itself as an art décor hotel. In fact, even the music of Jaipur Lit Fest (Coke Studio) takes places in our hotel. We support art, music charities and different evolving cultures of the city. Clarks was also one of the founders of Jaipur Virasat Festival,” Kumar informed us.
In order to initiate hospitality education, Clarks have formed an institute by the name of Clarks Centre of Excellence, which provides one to three years hospitality diploma free of cost, with 100 percent guaranteed employment. “We train local people and hire them, we believe that the business can only grow when the community grows,” Kumar adds.
