Keeping in mind the promising future for the hospitality industry worldwide and with hospitality-related jobs predicted to reach 250 million and forever increasing, the San-Mahu Education and Research Society has established an institute, Ambrosia Institute of Hospitality Management (AIHM), for the purpose of imparting training in Hospitality Studies and Tourism and Travel.

The chief office bearers of the San-Mahu Education and Research Society have been running a very popular and a well-established resort called Ambrosia Resorts since 1990. Ambrosia Resorts and AIHM are located in the same premise at Bavdhan Khurd, Pune on Pune-Paud Road.

AIHM aims to become synonymous with quality in hospitality education, considering the management’s long-lasting association with the culture of education and of the hospitality industry.

AIHM is one of the best hotel management colleges in Pune, offering a degree in hospitality studies, affiliated to Savitribai Phule Pune University.
