For the last 10 years BHMA Hotels & Resorts have been providing innovative hospitality management and design solutions across Asia for hotel owners and companies alike.
Within the last few years since Flight Centre Travel Group has backed the business, we have seen greater successes in both expansion and team performance.
Our CEO, Peter Lucas joined in early 2018 to drive business strategy and standards across the globe. Alexandre Amine Chaoui was already well placed in the company and managing the business fortunes as the Chief Financial Officer. Harry Thaliwal joined as EVP of Operations and Paul Wilson as EVP of Commercial in late 2018, and finally Jens O. Reichart joined as Chief Development Officer rounding out a strong C suite across our core hotel portfolio of X2, X2 Vibe and Away resorts.
We have opened branded properties in Vietnam (X2 Vibe Viet Tri), Bali (Away Bali Legian Camakila) and Phuket (X2 Vibe Phuket Patong) plus a new regional office in Indonesia as we expand into new territories. Our Away brand debuts in Phuket (Away Phuket Le Coral), our second property opened in Pattaya (X2 Pattaya Oceanphere) and another new property in Bali (X2 Bali Breakers).
Our aggressive growth model will help us compete at a greater global level than ever before and our new name represents our commitment to take on these challenges ahead.
We have an established and growing portfolio of well-placed and well-defined brands which will support properties across Hotels, Resorts, Urban Developments, Villas, Residences, Restaurants and Bars from 3.5 to 5 stars. With the global backing of FCTG our Cross Hotels & Resorts Masterbrand and hotel brands will become stronger and more agile in the market. Our focus and dedication to our brands and partnerships with our clients make our mutual success goals a key priority whilst focusing on flexible business solutions.
Getting our clients and brands ready for opening given all the necessary technical and management checks required is core to our management toolkit as well as essential in the hospitality business. We pride ourselves on knowledge, expertise and a healthy dose of passion and focus as well as the support of FCTG. We aim to make all the important steps simpler and smoother and on brief from the outset, working with architects, engineers, project managers, consultancy teams, designers and partners all with the simple goal of bringing the final product on time and on budget.
As FCTG continues to drive Cross Hotels & Resorts to greater levels of client success we will ensure that we continue to both challenge conventions and innovate across the spectrum.
