Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 11 January 2010

 Tivoli Hotels & Resorts has joined the Global Hotel Alliance (GHA). Founded in 1933, Tivoli owns and operates some of Portugals most reputed hotels in locations such as Lisbon, Sintra, Coimbra, the Algarve and Madeira. In 2006 they expanded into Brazil with a luxury resort in Praia do Forte in Bahia, and more recently with a landmark hotel in Sao Paulo.

Based on the airline alliance model, Global Hotel Alliance is one of the world s largest alliance of independent hotel brands. It uses a common technology platform to help drive incremental revenues and create cost savings for its members. GHA currently comprises of Anantara, Doyle Collection, First, Kempinski, Leela, Marco Polo, Omni, Pan Pacific, PARKROYAL, Shaza and Tivoli encompassing 223 upscale and luxury hotels with 55,000 rooms across 45 different countries.

GHAs CEO, Chris Hartley, said Tivolis membership is a critical step in GHAs growth plans, and underlines how the alliances business model is gaining recognition as the ideal solution for independent hotel brands. Not only is Tivoli a great brand, with some outstanding hotels, but Tivoli gives GHA its first foot-print in South America, in that continents most important emerging market, as well as giving excellent coverage of Portugal, as we strengthen our position in Europe, said Mr Hartley. 2010 was always going to be a landmark year for GHA with the creation of our multi-brand loyalty programme, but the addition of Tivoli gives us extra momentum, as we prepare to launch our first consumer-facing product.

With 13 properties around Portugal and 2 in Brazil, the Tivoli Hotels & Resorts group is one of the main hotel chains in Portugal, providing accommodation through approximately 3,600 rooms in the four and five star categories. The Tivoli Group was founded in 1933 with the prestigious Tivoli Lisboa, located on Av. da Liberdade. Other investments in new properties then followed: The Tivoli Palcio de Seteais, Tivoli Jardim, Tivoli Sintra and Tivoli Coimbra. With Esprito Santo Groups acquisition, the Tivoli brand substantially increased its supply in the congress segment and also diversified supply in tourism through expanded facilities in leisure and golf with 5 hotels in the Algarve region. In 2006, the Tivoli Hotels & Resorts Group started its internationalization in Brazil.

For Alexandre Solleiro, Tivolis Chief Operating Officer, Tivoli joining GHA is a big step to gaining international recognition for the brand. We already have a strong, loyal customer base in Portugal and Brazil, but GHA will give us access to markets, such as the US, the UK, Germany and Scandinavia, which are critical to our hotels success, but which are expensive to reach on our own. We are especially excited about the pending launch of the GHA loyalty programme, which will enable us to communicate with over a million loyal customers of GHAs members across the globe, giving us incremental revenue opportunities and greater recognition for our brand.
