Our team of experienced hospitality professionals are experts in their field, providing you with assurance that you can rely on world-class support from Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
Planning & Design for Profit
We have developed a set of market-leading brand development guidelines to ensure you benefit from the best of modern design, while maximising return on investment. Our highly-experienced technical team provides comprehensive advice on architecture, interior and exterior design and special planning, resulting in a value-engineered project that minimises development costs and maximises the use of commercial space to optimise revenue per square metre.
Sales – Maximising Corporate Revenue
We have sales offices in 18 countries, ensuring maximum inbound revenue generation from all major guest feeder markets. Our experienced sales teams have strong relationships with the corporate, meetings and events and leisure sectors and manage more than 650 corporate accounts globally. They also play a key role in representing and promoting our brand and our hotels at more than 20 international travel and tourism trade events globally each year.
Marketing & Public Relations
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is a high-profile global brand with strong awareness levels in key feeder markets, thanks to the expertise of our marketing and public relations departments. Our tactical leisure-focused advertising campaigns deliver some US$30 million in revenue annually, while our high-quality PR activity generates international press and social media coverage worth many more millions, elevating brand awareness and delivering key messages that reflect the commitment to our core values, from sustainability to offering unique guest experiences. Should a crisis or incident occur at corporate level or at your hotel, the public relations team is trained to manage the situation to protect the reputation of the brand and the property.
Precision Revenue Management
Revenue Management is vital to ensuring your investment yields the strongest returns. Using the latest revenue management techniques and leveraging leading-edge business intelligence systems, Mövenpick is able to make accurate hotel revenue forecasts. This ensures the management team can maximise Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) at your hotel while outperforming the local competition on rate and occupancy.
Online Distribution and Channel Optimisation
Our goal is to maximise the revenue you receive from each booking by driving customers to our direct online booking channels. To achieve that, we invest heavily in search engine marketing to ensure movenpick.com is highly visible online. We have negotiated special deals with more than 20 e-distribution partners that link directly to our dedicated reservations system, which minimises the commission we pay to third parties.
Operations – you are in safe hands
Our knowledgeable and experienced operations teams provide expert assistance to our hotel management and owners, covering every facet of the business. From pre-opening budgeting support to rigorous and regular quality controls and checks, we address every detail to ensure your hotel operations run smoothly before and after the grand opening.
Human Resources – employing the best teams to manage your hotel
Recruitment and the retention of talent is our crucial strategic objective. We place significant emphasis on training our staff to deliver our ‘we make moments’ promise to our guests, while ensuring we promote career progression and development wherever possible. Our key HR principles are to provide equal opportunities to all of our team members and to promote fairness and transparency across the organisation. Our annual employee engagement survey, which asks colleagues for their feedback on our performance as an employer, reveals our HR strategy is a success, with 84% employee satisfaction.
Our IT sytems provide guests with market-leading services including high-speed wireless Internet access and online check-in and check-out facilities. IT costs are minimised by clustering our resources, standardising systems and leveraging innovations such as cloud technology. The current implementation of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ US$10 million systems improvement programme will result in a unified property management system, enhanced revenue management capabilities and a state-of-the-art Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution.
