Baglioni Hotels & Resorts acquired

Mexico's Palace Resorts plans US expansion of Italian luxury hotelier

Cancun-based hospitality company, Palace Resorts, has acquired Baglioni Hotels & Resorts – a high-end Italian hotel company with properties in Rome, Florence, Milan, Venice, Sardinia, Apulia, London and the Maldives.

The takeover will see Guido Polito remain CEO of the Italian group, leading the expansion of the company’s brands through Europe, Asia and the Middle East. This agreement brings mutual beneficial advantages, allowing Baglioni Hotels & Resorts to further develop in the US market, which represents 70% of Palace Resorts’ business, and also reach the 75,000+ members of Palace Resorts’ loyalty program, Palace Elite Vacation Club.

The arrangement provides Palace Resorts with entry into the luxury European market, while also gaining an experienced and professional team to manage future hotels, resorts, and real estate investments in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Furthermore, Palace Resorts will bring the recognised Italian Brand to the Americas and the Caribbean to diversify the product offering for their members and clients in destinations where they are already leaders in the market.
