1 min read

ASMALLWORLD AG will manage the iconic North Island Resort in the Seychelles, that will join Marriott International’s the Luxury Collection brand portfolio in December 2019. It will be the first hotel in the newly-created ASMALLWORLD Hotel Collection.

ASMALLWORLD will oversee the day-to-day operations of the resort and its integration into Marriott International’s Luxury Collection brand portfolio later this year.

The announcement comes only weeks after ASMALLWORLD announced the acquisition of LuxuryBARED, an online luxury travel agency, and will further strengthen ASMALLWORLD’s position in the luxury travel space.

“We are very excited to launch the ASMALLWORLD Hotel Collection with such a world-renowned hotel as North Island. This first step towards building our very own luxury hotel collection will allow us to offer our travel-savvy members a unique destination, while at the same time increasing the occupancy rate and the profitability of the property” says CEO Jan Luescher.

North Island, one of the world’s most iconic resorts

Located amongst the inner granitic islands of Seychelles, North Island is owned by the North Island Company Limited and is anticipated to join The Luxury Collection brand portfolio of world-renowned hotels and resorts in December 2019. North Island, a Luxury Collection Resort is located approximately 30 kilometres northeast of Mahe Island, the main and largest island of Seychelles. Arriving at the property is both simple and tailored for guests, with the site being a 15-minute helicopter transfer or a one-hour boat trip from Mahe Island.
