Kingfisher Villa in Goa renamed
The Kingfisher Villa, formerly owned by absconding tycoon Vijay Mallya
The Kingfisher Villa, formerly owned by absconding tycoon Vijay Mallya, has been renamed King’s Mansion by its new owner, Sachiin Joshi, who also operates a liquor manufacturing business, whose products include King’s Beer.
“For months now, I have been asked about my plans for the villa. Today is the day I open the gates to the world. The property has been coronated as the King’s Mansion and the future plans have been drawn,” Joshi told reporters in Goa in December, soon after unveiling the plaque outside the massive villa, located in Candolim beach village, which is around 20 km from Panaji.
“We had multiple names to dabble with, but then the brand connection from Kings Beer and the inherent grandeur of the property made the choice,” he added. Joshi, who also operates hospitality businesses, including some in Goa, also said that there are more glamorous plans for the villa, which has hosted A-list celebrities at dos hosted by its former owner, Mallya.
