LEVA Hotels continues expansion plans in the Middle East

 



LEVA Hotels targets key markets in the Middle East including Saudi Arabia, Doha, Egypt, Syria, and Iraq


22 September 2021, Dubai - LEVA Hotels, the dynamic lifestyle hotel brand, has its sights set on rapid growth. With five properties in its portfolio, LEVA Hotels seeks to expand its presence within the Middle East and Africa.


Noticing a gap and an opportunity for “affordable luxury” in the local market, LEVA Hotels is working towards enhancing the region’s hospitality offering with its properties which are all design-led, digital-first, and wallet-friendly.


This attracts a key section of the Middle East’s growing business and leisure market - targeting travelling professionals, families, and holidaymakers.


JS Anand, Founder & CEO of LEVA Hotels & Resorts says, “Our processes are thoughtfully designed to deliver consistent service with added value to our guests and practical results to our stakeholders and hotel owners. We’re proud of what we have built with a thought process that aligns with low investment, easier conversions or new builds, and competitive and logical fees”.


He continues, “Our growth is not about acquiring assets for management at any costs for the brand but understanding that we can deliver results because that’s what matters to the hotel owner. And for us, LEVA’s reputation remains our priority as it defines us as a result-oriented and dynamic out-of-the-box operator. Ownerships have the need to recognise how the industry has evolved in the current times”.



Why partner with LEVA?



LEVA Hotels has a carefully tailored structure to ensure stakeholders and hotel owners receive maximum and logical returns on their investment.

Investors can either partner with LEVA Hotels on the construction of a new property or collaborate with them to transform an existing property with subtle design modifications, adding in elements of the LEVA brand which is tailored to the owner’s budget, instead of being imposed with a costly design modification.

What makes LEVA’s model even more attractive is its competitive fee structure and economic cost-controlled models; a critical requirement in today’s market which is recovering after a pandemic. These models allow LEVA to be cost-effective and profitable even when markets are buoyant.


Working with LEVA Hotels comes with a range of support. This includes an existing framework of strategic partnerships including a global distribution system, branding company, an in-house hotel design team, seamless hospitality software, revenue management, and a PR team.



Another feature that prioritises return on investment is tight and structured lean staffing models. Ownerships are also given the option of leasing or getting an external operator to create a concept and run the entire F&B operation in order to meet the ownership and brand’s requirements.
