Our Hotel Division continued to grow steadily in 2018 through acquisitions, openings and upgrades of its existing properties.
One of the latest additions to our portfolio of hotels and resorts is Castello del Nero, a 50-key five star hotel in Tuscany, Italy. Nestled within the landscapes of olive groves and vineyards, this 12th century castle leaves memorable impressions for discerning guests. The luxury hotel features a unique spa experience where therapeutic sessions are crafted for relaxation with ingredients from their very own estate, such as virgin olive oil and lavender, while surrounded by scenic beauty. In recognition of the hotel’s excellent service and green initiatives, Castello del Nero won the TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. Adding on to this accolade, it was included in American Express’ Fine Hotels and Resorts in 2018. The luxurious hotel also hosts a Michelin star restaurant, La Torre, where guests’ palettes are pampered with unique gourmet cuisines.
