Grace Hotels, a luxury hotel collection owned by the Libra Group, will be joining the Auberge Resorts Collection, an award-winning international luxury resort brand.
According to an announcement, in the next 90 days, Grace Santorini and Grace Mykonos in Greece, along with the Mayflower Inn & Spa in Washington; White Barn Inn & Spa in Kennebunk, Maine; and the Vanderbilt Hotel in Newport, will join the Auberge Resorts Collection.
Furthermore, over the next few years, the collection will scale even further with the addition of other properties that are under development in Athens, Kalamata, Kea and a second resort in Santorini, Greece; Marrakech, Morocco; Buenos Aires, Argentina; as well as St. Moritz, Switzerland.
The existing Grace properties and those in the pipeline will be branded under the Auberge Resorts Collection name and managed by the Auberge team.
“The hotels are in extremely good hands with Auberge, whose existing and pipeline properties are highly complementary with our hotels,” said George Logothetis, Chairman and CEO of the Libra Group.
Under the terms of the agreement Libra Group will take a strategic interest in Auberge Resorts, which owns a portfolio of superb hotels, resorts, residences and private clubs in destinations that include Napa Valley, California, Colorado, Mexico, the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Fiji.
“Like Grace Hotels, Auberge is known for capturing the magic and character of each local destination. Auberge is also family-owned and has a passion for the highest quality experiences,” Grace Hotel CEO Robert Swade said in an announcement to travel partners.
The transition will not impact any current reservations at Grace Hotels. “Our talented teams look forward to greeting your guests with the same gracious service as you have come to expect from us,” Swade said.
The hotel can continued to be booked under the existing GDS codes, via the Grace website or via the group’s reservations team.
