Muy’Ono Hospitality Assumes Management of The Placencia Resort

USA, Austin, Texas. March 14, 2019

Muy'Ono Hospitality, an innovative management company for resorts and tour operators in Belize, announced today that it has assumed management of The Placencia Resort. Ideally situated along the Maya Beach coastline in Southern Belize, the 90-room resort is just a short journey away from the quaint village of Placencia, and perfectly positioned to provide access to both jungle and ocean adventures. Providing an all-encompassing vacation experience, the property boasts a picture-perfect pool with swim-up bar and a pristine, private beach. Guests also enjoy various dining options, tennis courts, a marina and pier, a casino, spa services, a PADI 5-Star dive shop, and adventure center.

"With breathtaking Caribbean accommodations, an array of unique food and beverage offerings, immersive activities and more, The Placencia exemplifies all that guests could desire in a vacation destination," said Cortney Lebens, CEO of Muy'Ono Hospitality. "Delivering unique access to Belize and its many natural wonders, the resort embodies Muy'Ono's commitment to providing authentic and distinctive experiences that celebrate the unique culture of the region and appeal to travelers looking for exceptional adventures that cannot be found anywhere else in the world."

The Placencia provides guests with spacious one, two, and three-bedroom accommodations, ideal for couples, families, or larger groups. From its beachfront Villas to its Master Suites, guest rooms provide a calming sanctuary complete with marble bathrooms and expansive areas to relax and unwind after a day in the sun. All rooms boast outdoor living spaces and are equipped with complimentary wi-fi, flat-screen televisions, mini bar and coffeemaker, among other amenities.

Guests can choose to dine at three on-site restaurants and bars, each offering a distinct environment and menu. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Capriccio Restaurant provides farm-to-table dishes that take traditional Italian plates and blends them with a uniquely Belizean touch, all complimented by striking beachfront views throughout the dining experience. Every ingredient comes directly from the sea or from local farms straight to the table, ensuring the highest level of fresh, authentic cuisine. Travelers can also choose to dine outside on the Palm Terrace, providing the same menu as Capriccio with a more casual outdoor atmosphere. Additional dining options include the Pier Bar & Lounge, located over the water serving tropical cocktails and light bites throughout the afternoon and evening, and the Azure Pool Bar, the resort's signature swim-up bar offering a variety of drinks and light pool snacks throughout the day.

For those seeking out adventure, guests can enjoy exclusive complimentary use of the resort's kayaks, paddle boards, bicycles, and other non-motorized water toys. Bookings can also be made for various land and sea excursions, from visiting the resort's private island of Ranguana Caye for the day to zip lining and river tubing down the South Stann Creek River. Guests can also visit the on-site PADI 5-Star Dive Shop to arrange various SCUBA and snorkeling excursions to the second largest barrier reef in the world, as well as access the Placencia Casino adjacent to the resort and The Racquet Club.

If visiting the area by sea, The Placencia Marina is the only superyacht destination marina between Mexico and Roatan and is the only marina in Belize able to berth yachts with up to a 16' draft. The marina is fully supported by The Placencia Resort, and all marina guests have full access to all the services and amenities of the hotel, including any charter flights and helicopter services as needed.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
