Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel Welcomes New Director of Sales and Senior Transient Sales Manager

USA, Miami, Florida. April 30, 2020

Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel is pleased to announce the promotion of Stephanie Tablada to Director of Sales, in addition to the appointment of Maribel Perez as the hotel's new Senior Transient Sales Manager.

A hotel sales professional with more than 10 years of experience in the industry, Stephanie has served as Surfcomber's Associate Director of Sales since April 2017. Prior to joining Surfcomber, Stephanie held a Sales Coordinator position at Kimpton EPIC Hotel in 2011. After two years in her position, she moved on to work with both Morgans Hotel Group (now SBE Group) and Starwood Hotels & Resorts to pursue growth opportunities. In fact, her hard work and dedication allowed her to attain promotions into Conference Services Management, Catering Sales, and Group Sales. Although her experience at other companies was rewarding, Stephanie grasped at the opportunity to return to Kimpton in April 2017, after realizing how truly exceptional it is to work for a company that has been on Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for more than a decade. As Director of Sales, Stephanie will lead Surfcomber's six-person sales team to develop strategies that establish Surfcomber as a leader in the marketplace through the development of future and repeat business. She was named Manager of the Year for 2018 at Surfcomber.

Maribel joins Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel from one of Kimpton's LA properties, Kimpton Hotel Wilshire. She will oversee the corporate travel and leisure markets for Surfcomber and will be responsible for developing new retail travel leisure partners. Prior to joining Kimpton, Maribel worked in multiple Sales and Operational roles for companies such as Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, Starwood and Hyatt Hotels. Her background includes over 10 years of experience in hospitality. Maribel is an active member of industry associations and groups including GBTA, Millennials in Travel and MPI.

"An exceptional hotel requires an exceptional team - and Surfcomber is lucky to have Maribel and Stephanie onboard," said Mohan Koka, Surfcomber's General Manager. "Thanks to their combined experience and talent, our property can't be beat."

Kimpton Surfcomber is located on the Atlantic Ocean's edge along 200 feet of oceanfront property in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco District on historic Collins Avenue. With direct beach access in this fashionable destination, the hotel offers visitors a distinctively relaxed, yet worldly guest experience, within a "backyard bliss" design-driven environment. Surfcomber offers a diverse mix of dining and lounge options including The Social Club and High Tide. Surfcomber's signature pool/beach experience includes the hotel's expansive outdoor deck with heated pool, recently revamped The Vines cabanas and Daylife activities such as wellness classes, family games, Splash Cycle (a unique aqua cycling experience) and more. Surfcomber's meeting and event space can accommodate everything from intimate weddings, to large corporate events up to 500 people. At Surfcomber, guests will enjoy the perfect quartet of sun, surf, sand and social.

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.
