In conjunction with the revamp of their corporate identity and the rebrand and re-launch of their five star resort, Coco Bodu Hithi, Coco Collection – one of the leading portfolios of luxury resorts in the Maldives – recently signed a deal with branding, distribution, sales and marketing leaders, Preferred Hotel Group.
The alignment with a likeminded association such as Preferred Hotel Group signifies Coco Collection’s commitment to being a premier ‘luxury holiday lifestyle’ resort brand, with focus on service excellence, quality product, residential design and sustainability. Preferred Hotel Group will represent two of Coco Collection’s luxurious properties, Coco Bodu Hithi and Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, whilst also offering sales, marketing and technology support.
“We are very pleased to align the Coco Collection properties with a prestigious organization such as Preferred Hotel Group,” commented Patrick Heuzé, Chief Executive Officer of Coco Collection. “Preferred Hotel Group shares our own brand’s focus on customized service, and its superior distribution technology and sales & marketing expertise are the right fit to support the expanding portfolio of Coco Collection as we introduce the next generation of luxury hospitality into new destinations in the Middle East, Africa and Asian regions.”
The exotic 5 star resorts, Coco Bodu Hithi and Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu will be marketed under the Preferred Boutique brand.
