  • Farol Design Hotel

    Enlargement and reconversion consulting of the old Inn into a Design Hotel concept, coordinating both architecture and interior design projects, and refurbishment project management.

    In the operation department, we oversaw the Marketing Plan, Pricing and Revenue Management policy, reorganised the new Human resources team renovation, restructured and reorganized the operational departments, organized and supervised the inauguration party, trade presentation and operations kick off under the new concept.
  • Z-Mar Eco Resort

    Our collaboration started in the very beginning of this Eco Resort new project focused on family concept and thematic events, including a wide range of equipment and services.

    Our involvement covered the architecture project support, including all the services and outlets as the restaurant, bars, show-cooking and preparation kitchen, supermarket, storage areas, leisure and wellness areas and activities, swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) as well as the villas, bungalows and camping facilities.

    In the operational side, we implemented the business and marketing plans, including the pricing and revenue management procedures, human resources recruitment, wrote the standard operational procedures manuals for all the operating departments, new team’s introduction and coaching, CAPEX & OPEX investment supervision, operational IT definition requirements support, pre-opening and first year operations support.

  • Santiago Hotel Cooking & Nature

    In this Hotel, we collaborated as Project Managers of the different teams involved in the project, as the Architecture, Engineering and Interior Designers, as well as the full renovation process of CAPEX investment & OPEX cost control.

    This project was based on a full renovation of a old-style hotel into a Cooking & Nature new concept hotel, which involved a total refurbishment of the rooms and facilities, both inhouse and exterior areas.

  • Villa C Boutique Hotel

    In this hotel, we collaborated as Project Managers of the different teams involved in the project, including the Architecture, Engineering and Interior Designers, for the full renovation process, CAPEX investment & OPEX cost control.

    This project was based on a full renovation of a traditional business hotel into a pleasant place in town where also locals feel welcome for a meal or a spa experience. The new look and hospitality concept have greatly improved the hotel’s equity value and revenue generation versus the previous old style and conventional hotel.
