Prominent business personality and two-time Asian Games gold medalist Byram Dinshawji Avari passed away on Sunday at the age of 81, Aaj News reported.

He had been ill for a long time and was being treated in a private hospital. He left behind 3 children among the bereaved.

“His funeral prayers will be held at Khorshed Villa, inside the compound of Beach Luxury Hotel at 1 pm on Monday, 23rd January 2023,” his family said.

Byram was a prominent Pakistani businessman based in Karachi. He was the owner and the chairman of the Avari Group of companies – a leading hotel management company in Pakistan. The group owns and operates Avari Hotels which includes a 5-star deluxe hotel in Lahore, the 5-star Avari Towers and the seafront Beach Luxury Hotel in Karachi.

The group is also actively pursuing opportunities for owning and/or managing 3 and 4-star properties elsewhere in Pakistan.

The Avari Group was the first Pakistani company to have obtained international hotel management contracts. As of now, they operate the 200-room 4- star hotel in Dubai, and manage the 200-room Ramada Inn in Toronto at Pearson Airport in Canada.

Apart from his business activities, Byram was a national-level sailor and won two Asian Games gold medals for Pakistan in 1978 (with Muneer Sadiq) and 1982 (with his wife Goshpi Avari).

Got to know him and his personally when he used to visit Dubai, and stayed in touch when he would come on his short trip to Toronto. Anytime I would call him he would invite me to come stay at his hotel, either Karachi, Dubai or Toronto. He was such a honest and down to earth person and a man of his word. Will miss talking to him and seeing his smiling face. May you rest in eternal peace

Very sad to hear that we lost a great philanthropist & a great human being. I worked for him in 1980s and found him very compassionate and a wonderful person. The last time I met him was in New York when he took me to a dinner in favorite place. May God bless his soul keep in peace.
