USA, Dallas, Texas. August 20, 2019

Aimbridge Hospitality, the nation's largest independent hotel management company, is heating up its international portfolio with the addition of six Caribbean resorts.

The new Caribbean resorts now under Aimbridge Hospitality management include:

  • Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort & Emerald Casino, Curaçao: After undergoing a complete rebuild, the property is set to reopen in fall 2019.
  • Grand Hyatt Grand Cayman Hotel & Residence, Cayman Islands: The resort will break ground by year end 2019 and set to open Fall 2021.
  • Margaritaville Beach Resort at The Pointe, Nassau, Bahamas: This new build resort is set to open in June 2020.
  • Hyatt Regency Coco Beach, Puerto Rico: The beachside family-friendly resort reopened in August 2019.
  • Marriott Frenchman's Reef, St. Thomas: One of two St. Thomas properties in Aimbridge's portfolio, the resort is currently undergoing construction and set to open in Spring 2020.
  • Autograph Collection Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort, St. Thomas: Adjacent to Marriott Frenchman's Reef, this resort is currently undergoing construction and anticipates opening in Spring 2020.

Aimbridge-managed luxury resort Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Resort & Spa is also undergoing renovations and is set to open in Spring 2020.

"The acquisition of these resorts is a great expansion for our Caribbean portfolio," said Dave Johnson, Chairman and CEO at Aimbridge Hospitality. "The devastation from the 2017 hurricanes has produced a tremendous opportunity as newly renovated and revamped assets look to relaunch and reposition back into the marketplace."

With the acquisition of these properties, Aimbridge Hospitality now represents nine resorts on eight Caribbean islands with immediate plans to continue expanding. Aimbridge Hospitality is also planning to add an additional 10-12 Caribbean resorts in the pipeline for 2019 and 2020.

Aimbridge Hospitality is headquartered in Dallas with development offices in Puerto Rico and Chicago. For more information on Aimbridge Hospitality, please visit www.aimbridgehospitality.com.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
