Paris, July 13, 2016 – Oetker Collection, the brand behind some of the world’s most exquisite hotels, including Le Bristol Paris and Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, is quickly becoming a favorite for travellers from all over the world. Less than ten years old, the emerging brand has propelled to top ranks, among several renowned hospitality groups. The Collection recently received top accolades from travellers, placing as the top European brand and second overall in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best survey.
“We are honored to be recognized as a brand leader in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best survey,” says CEO Frank Marrenbach. “We recognize luxury is less about material goods and more about refined experiences, more high touch than high tech. Our saying is that luxury does not shout at you, it whispers at you. This honor is a testament to our staff and the excellence they uphold on a daily basis to ensure guest satisfaction.”
While the history of its hotels began in Cap d’Antibes in 1870, the Oetker Collection brand was established 8 years ago. Nearly doubling in size since 2008, the Collection currently manages nine, one-of-a-kind hotels. The latest addition, the famed Lanesborough, already recognized as one of the very best London properties by Travel + leisure, continues tradition in reflecting the brand’s unique European heritage and sharing the highest levels of service, exceptional design and great attention to detail. The Lanesborough sister hotel, Le Bristol Paris, Brenners Park Hotel & Spa in Baden- Baden and Eden Roc-St Barths have also received top honours.
Oetker Collection anticipates growth of up to 15 individual properties over the next decade, with expansion into the Americas already underway. In spring 2017, the brand will open Palácio Tangará São Paulo in the heart of Burle Marx Park, an urban oasis in the middle of the financial capital of South America.
The brand’s recognition in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, a reader’s choice survey, speaks volumes to its success in this mission.
