The Leela Kempinski Mumbai has bolstered security in the wake of the terrorist attack in the city and forecasts an immediate drop in C&I visitors.

Although its properties were not targeted by the terrorists, Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, which owns the Mumbai property and several other luxury resorts in India, is on ‘red alert' and has upped security to protect its staff and guests.

The group's president, Onno Poortier said: "We have implemented strict security measures in all our properties and alerted our security to maintain a stringent level of vigilance during this high degree of caution phase."

"As an immediate impact, we expect to see a drop in reservations in general due to cancellations by visitors for conferences and exhibitions due to this tragedy."
