DLF, India’s biggest property developer, will sell its Amanresorts luxury hotel chain in a management buy-out — to founder and chairman Adrian Zecha — with an enterprise value of around $300 million…the deal does not involve Amanresorts’ flagship New Delhi hotel.

Amanresorts, with assets including 22 hotels in 12 countries, has been on the block for around two years.
