Our new brand personality
Every new year brings the beautiful opportunity to reinvent ourselves. In the past months we started to redefine who we are as a premium-quality hospitality brand. Following our own path, customizing our services to better meet customers’ needs, bringing the voice of the customer into every aspect of the business, attracting and retaining the right talent through internal culture, tapping into local communities in an authentic way and creating a brand identity that stands out through time were our key inherent drivers.
After these two transformative years A new normality is and a new way to interact and enjoy. We want to make the best use of our time now so we squeeze life and make the most out of it. As we are experiencing a period of rediscovering freedom, we have the need to open up to new stories, new beginnings, to others and to new experiences. We wan to inspire our guests to dare to enjoy, experience and share again, to rediscover freedom, maximize every moment, be curious, try new things and feel new feelings.
