Auberge enters strategic partnership with Grace Hotels
POSTED 24 Oct 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Auberge Resorts will manage Grace Hotels in Europe and the US after the company entered into a strategic partnership with Grace's owner, the Libra Group.

Auberge will add five Grace properties in Europe and the northeastern US into the Auberge Resorts Collection portfolio, as well as additional properties currently under development over the next two years. 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 expanded Auberge portfolio will now include the Grace Santorini, which overlooks the Aegean Sea; the historic Mayflower Inn & Spa in the Connecticut countryside; and in 2020, a lakeside hotel in the heart of St. Moritz, Switzerland.

In the next 90 days, the Grace properties in Mykonos and Santorini, Greece, along with the Mayflower Inn & Spa in Washington, Connecticut, US.; White Barn Inn & Spa in Kennebunk, Maine, US; and the Vanderbilt Hotel in Newport, Rhode Island, US, will join Auberge Resorts Collection.

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.

As part of the agreement, the Libra Group will have a strategic interest in Auberge Resorts Collection, establishing a relationship between the two family-owned companies.

“Our strategic partnership with the Libra Group will expand our portfolio of acclaimed properties and build on Auberge Resorts Collection’s reputation as a premier hospitality brand,” said Dan Friedkin, chair, Auberge Resorts Collection. “With the Logothetis family, we have found like-minded partners who share our desire to deliver exceptional quality and unparalleled guest experiences.”

Plans are underway to integrate the properties into the Auberge Resorts Collection and welcome the Grace employees into the Auberge family over the next three months.

Following the transaction with Libra, Auberge Resorts Collection will include:
