WORLDHOTELS is pleased to announce an exclusive cooperation agreement with the much anticipated, Buddha-Bar Hotels & Resorts group.
This one of a kind luxury hotel experience based on the Buddha-Bar restaurant vision is joining forces with WORLDHOTELS, Europe's largest and longest established hotel group for independent luxury properties and regional hotel brands worldwide.
The brand new Buddha-Bar Hotels & Resorts strive to exceed the highest standards of a five star hotel while enhancing every guest's stay with an atmosphere that caters to absolutely all senses. They will have the same mystical Fusion flair and enchanting ambience as the restaurants and will open in some of the world's most popular destinations, the first in the vibrant heart of Prague in September 2008.
Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague will be situated in the historic Old Town Square and will have 36 luxury rooms and 3 exquisite suites all in a contemporary modern Asian interior design with French colonial influence. The truly unique Buddha-Bar Restaurant, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, hammam steam room, Jacuzzi and spa treatments offered in the quiet convenience of the guest rooms serve to complete a perfectly unique Buddha-Bar experience.
A further five brand new hotels are scheduled to open at a later date in Panama, Dominican Republic, Paris, Sal Hasheesh/Egypt and "The World", Dubai's ambitious island project shaped like the continents of the world. At the end of the year the number will increase as three more developments will be announced.
The innovative Buddha-Bar concept was created over ten years ago by Raymond Visan, who strives to create "living areas"; combining a restaurant and bar with a live DJ playing World influenced music. At the same time, the Buddha-Bar vision encompasses providing a soothing retreat from the frenzy of urban life. Visan is now looking to extend the vision's interpretation through the hotel brand and has looked to WORLDHOTELS to contribute to its successful development.
"WORLDHOTELS was brought to our attention by some of our most supportive and trusted consultants firmly believing this partnership would be the ideal scenario for our ambitious plans" says Raymond Visan, Managing Director and Founder of the Buddha-Bar concept. "The obvious trust many leading industry professional have placed in WORLDHOTELS for almost 40 years was most convincing. They understand what it means to customize a global sales, marketing and distribution approach to suit our individual needs, as ours will reflect onto the guest's experience at every level."
A sentiment shared by Ingo Guerges, Senior Director Business Development and Relations at WORLDHOTELS, who adds, "Our company's philosophy of ‘Bringing Unique Hotels and People together' is what Buddha-Bar Hotels & Resorts reflects in perfection. ‘A feast for all your senses' is their promise to future guests. Together we now aim to communicate this promising message via WORLDHOTELS' world travelling clientele who will soon be able to experience the first Buddha-Bar Hotel in Prague in autumn of 2008."
