The July edition of Boutique Hotelier is now live to view online, and features the two COOs of boutique hotel industry stalwart brands, Hotel du Vin and Malmaison.
For Hotel du Vin, Nick Halliday talks us through the next steps for growth in the pipeline, while Scott Harper over at Malmaison explains how each team works to keep the brand at the top of its game.
Also featured in this issue is Rudding Park and the hotel’s epic new £9.5m spa development. Managing director Peter Banks describes how the project was over a decade in the planning, and he reveals the ambitious targets he has set for the new addition, as it bids to become one of the best spa destinations in the UK.
With spas high on the investment agenda right now, our issue has a particular focus on all aspects of the spa industry, with eight pages dedicated the latest trends in health and wellbeing, a look at the hotels making major investments in this side of their business and the suppliers you need to know before taking the plunge and expanding.
We also look at the city of Brighton and how hotels based here look set to benefit from the football club’s promotion to the Premier League.
As technology continues to be a hot topic, we look at the new products and innovations that have got hoteliers talking over the last few years, and where you should be investing.
