Meyer Jabara Hotels Acquires Residence Inn by Marriott Amelia Island

USA, Danbury, Connecticut. April 02, 2020

Meyer Jabara Hotels (MJH) has acquired the Residence Inn by Marriott Amelia Island, located at 2301 Sadler Road, Fernandina Beach, Fla. Operating under MJH leadership since it opened in 2009, the 133-room all-suite hotel is a top Marriott brand performer and a favorite among travelers with a 97 percent guest satisfaction ranking. This is one of many Marriott hotels in the MJH portfolio and expands its presence with Residence Inn.

"From day one of managing this property we knew it was going to be a winner, and we are thrilled to have purchased this asset — it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up," said Justin Jabara, MJH President. "Not only is Amelia Island a beautiful location, but the Amelia Island destination market is strong, and this property is far from cookie cutter. It's a tropical oasis with high-end furnishings, a resort-style pool, family grilling area, fitness center and all the other amenities travelers come to anticipate and enjoy from this extended-stay brand. The Residence Inn by Marriott Amelia Island offers beachside living at its finest. We can't wait to see what the future holds for this exceptional asset."

General Manager Bob Hartman said he attributes the property's ongoing success to the DNA of the MJH culture, the commitment of staff to deliver exceptional guest experiences, and the community involvement of all employees from the top down.

"Our staff is the No. 1 driver of return guests — we consistently rank 4.8 out of 5.0 in customer service," Hartman said. "This is a reflection on MJ's commitment to marketplace differentiation and hospitality excellence. We are directed by MJ to do whatever it takes to elevate the standards of the brand and create memorable experiences that entice guests to return.

"The Residence Inn Amelia Island experience is far from typical; we leverage our destination planning experience to make it a one-of-a-kind place to stay," Hartman said.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
