Speaker profile

Jitendra Bhatia

Managing Director

Sunflower is a JV between Seung and Bhatia families.

This partnership, now in its second generation, started with TIC LLC, a business established by the Bhatia family in 1974 in Dubai, trading timber products in Middle East and India which are produced in Indonesia by Korindo Group, a business owned by the Seung family. Korindo Group have extensive forestry, real estate and manufacturing businesses across the Middle and Far East regions.

Inspired by the enduring nature of their existing partnership, the families’ foray into hospitality was based on the notion of hotels essentially being venues for bringing people together. The choice of Dubai as the location for their maiden Hotel venture was influenced both by Dubai’s position as the leading trading hub of the region, as well as by the City’s ambition to position itself as one of the leading tourist destinations of the world.
