Spoilt for choice This month we are excited to reveal some of our latest in luxury hotels & resorts , spas and restaurants that have made their appearance on the Haute Grandeur shortlist this season.
FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
The impact of this overall slowdown due to the global pandemic has been felt in some ways by many in the industry. On the contrary, a number of new, luxurious properties opened their doors for the first time. Words such as personalised, unique, gourmet, luxury, excellent service and other key differentiators are no long in the hands of a small domination of properties or brand owners. The luxury travel market is bursting with new properties, big and small, all claiming to fame by offering at least one if not a range of such expressions and differentiators. The luxury traveller is spoilt for choice for locations to visit when travel restrictions are lifted, take a look at our shortlisted properties that may become part of your ‘places to visit’ when you plan your next holiday. The hoteliers of today know what offerings to focus on so as to hit the spot with their repeat clientele. It’s no longer about size as well. Boutique hotels with anywhere from 3 to 30 rooms are becoming popular with the savvy travellers. It could be the unique historical significance, the architecture or simply the elegance of the service that makes the next generation of boutique hotels a force to be reckoned with. There is also something to be said about not being part of the herd of a hundred plus people being channelled through the morning buffet table.Boutique hotels are on to a trend and its set to grow significantly within the preference lists of travellers. Our season’s winners will be announced by mid 2021 so stay tuned to know who will be the properties to exceed your expectations. We sincerely trust that you will have as much pleasure reading this edition of our magazine as we enjoyed compiling this for you, our dear readers. Happy Reading!

INTERVIEW: Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam
|W| www.sofitel-legend-thegrand.com |E| h2783-RE@sofitel.com
Emmy Stoel General Manager Apart from having the oldest historical building, the French cousu main based service is a differentiator in the market.
What is your current biggest challenge competing on a global scale in a highly competitive industry? Dealing with the strict government regulations which limits the options of doing business. We try to be active and creative and within the restrictions we offer new offerings for the local market which currently is who we cater for. These are initiatives like creating a beach terrace or hosting musical afternoon teas and doing take-away from our Bridges restaurant. All new initiatives that were developed during covid-19. What differentiate the hotel from others in your opinion? Apart from having the oldest historical building, the French cousu main based service is a differentiator in the market. Together with the unique butler service and the lush private garden and the most central location we have a lot going for us. How do you remain competitive within your region in terms of the hotel’s offerings?
Creating new concepts such as The Grand Beach or various packages for locals but also to focus on initiating events for the local community supporting people that are hard done by covid-19. How do you expect will the association with Haute Grandeur benefit your brand in the medium/ longrun? It gives us a great recognition and it is a wonderful benchmark to be listed amongst peers in the industry. Which market segment do you cater for? The upper luxury (international) traveler is the main segment. Amsterdam is very much a leisure destination and whether people come pre/post cruise, city trip, or are transiting with a few days layover in Amsterdam first, the city is always a great option. Locally it is very focused on having the Amsterdammers come for lunch or dinner and we host many local weddings as we are a key wedding venue.

“Local at heart, international in design and feel we are focused to set a new standard for Turkish hospitality.” What is your current biggest challenge competing on a global scale in a highly competitive industry? 2020 has been an extremely challenging year for the whole world. We all have come to realize how important the things we have taken for granted are. We have been reminded the overlooked significance of traveling, celebrations, weddings, visits and crowded dinner tables. The global epidemic has forced us to embrace a “new normal”. Our homes turned into offices and schools. We constantly reminded each other to wear a mask, keep our social distance and wash our hands. Simply put, we have learned to live with the pandemic. We prioritized hygiene long before COVID-19. When the pandemic hit, we started to actively inspect and evaluate all our operations and facilities with our special team named Elite World CARE (COVID-19 Anti Risk Team). As a result, we were able to offer safer and socially distanced vacation experience
with areas redesigned to be more spacious. During this difficult period, our guests have preferred our hotel to escape from the exhausting routines of the crowded urban landscape and enjoy a breath of fresh air in a safe and hygienic environment with their loved ones. What differentiate the hotel from others in your opinion? Local at heart, international in design and feel we are focused to set a new standard for Turkish hospitality. We know that creating a sense of home and wellbeing for our guests is the only way forward to achieve powerful asset and growth driven success.

Visitors may also enjoy outdoor activities in the forest offering great bio-diversity, including walking/running at the jogging track, nature exploring trips with ATVs as well as yoga and Pilates at open-air pavilions. How do you remain competitive within your region in terms of the hotel’s offerings?
How do you expect the association with Haute Grandeur will benefit your brand in the medium/ long run? Haute Grandeur Global Awards is one of the world’s most prestigious awards organization. We believe being granted with a Haute Grandeur Award will raise awareness of our hotel in a global scale, boost our marketing and and have a direct impact on guests perceptions.
