Brand offers hotel owners and operators a strong asset value enhancement solution

Luxury Frontiers, a leader in conceiving, designing and developing luxury tented suites and creative tree-top experiences, has announced a partnership with award-winning Nayara Hotels to create Nayara Tented Resort comprised of 24 tents, each featuring a master suite with en-suite bathroom as well as an adjoining tent that can be arranged as a lounge or a second bedroom. Opening in the first quarter of 2017, each tent will be 945 sq. ft, and will sit on its own platform furnished with an outdoor living area and a plunge pool filled from nearby hot springs.

This first foray into The Americas for Luxury Frontiers underscores the company’s expertise with these exclusive offerings for hotel owners and operators who want to capitalize on available land. The brand’s holistic one-stop experiential design, development and operations expertise coupled with investment capital makes its business model especially unique.

“In addition to their already successful properties Arenal Nayara and Nayara Springs, the development of this new resort gives Nayara Hotels an alternative, ‘light-on-earth’ solution to using existing land to create an amazing, immersive experience for their guests,” said Luca Franco, Founder and Managing Partner, Luxury Frontiers.

“We are excited to see this partnership come to fruition,” said Andrew Dickey, Senior Vice President for JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group, who facilitated the alliance between the two companies.  “With the continued evolution of experiential travel coupled with the need for authentic leadership in social and environmental responsibility, working with Luxury Frontiers gives resort owners a unique value proposition.”

Differentiating the brand even further, Luxury Frontiers accommodations are eco-friendly with sustainable design features, ranging from the use of locally and sustainably sourced building materials and aerobic sewerage treatment systems to rainwater capture systems and renewable energy sources.

Luxury Frontiers has completed five projects including tented accommodations for Lemala Kuria Hills by Tourvest in Tanzania, Musangu Lodge in Zambia and the Shakawe River Lodge in Botswana as well as a resort add-on for the Gran Hotel Son Net in Mallorca, Spain and a full refurbishment of the Belmond Eagle Island Lodge in Botswana. Projects in the pipeline include major partnerships with globally renowned luxury hospitality brands including Four Seasons, Six Senses, Wilderness Safaris and more in locations across the U.S., Colombia, Tanzania and Botswana.
