Hans Jenni to Step Down as President of General Hotels Management

USA, Coral Gables, Florida. May 06, 2020

Seasoned hotelier Hans Jenni, President of General Hotels Management (GHM) has announced his retirement from the company he founded and built together with hotel legend and Amanresorts creator, Adrian Zecha.
Since it was founded in 1992, GHM under Jenni's leadership conceived and operated some of the world's most stylish and individualistic hotels and resorts in the most exotic locations - always with a strong focus on contemporary Asian style coupled with the finest service standards.

The unique "a style to remember" that GHM grew famous for was forged by Jenni and Zecha together with some of the world's most groundbreaking architects and designers, including Kerry Hill, Jean-Michel Gathy, Ed Tuttle, Reda Amalou and Jaya Ibrahim. GHM and Amanresorts grew alongside each other as sister companies, sharing a similar ethos and style, and together set new benchmarks and standards for the hospitality industry.

GHM's properties over the years included The Datai, Langkwai, The Legian Bali, The Setai, Miami, The Lalu Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan, The Nam Hai in Vietnam, Al Bait in Sharjah and The Chedi brand which blossomed to multiple locations including Phuket, Bali, Chiang Mai, Muscat, Milan and Bandung, and more recently Andermatt in Jenni's native Switzerland.

"It's been an exciting and rewarding journey, and I have loved every minute of it. I had the pleasure to create and operate some of the finest properties in the world and work with some of the very best architects, designers, and hoteliers of our time," said Jenni. "I very much hope that GHM will continue to be remembered as one of the most innovative and influential hotel groups."

Jenni will continue to be based in Asia and plans to divide his time between Singapore and Manila.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
