Speaking at the one-day training-cum-refresher course on hospitality services, organised by Kohima Hotels and Restaurants’ Union (KHRU) and sponsored by Tourism department at Hotel 2K in Kohima on October 23, Doulo told the KHRU members to create an experience home away from home and curate in such a way that it continuously attract the tourists.
