MIRA Hotels & Resorts Group Continues to Grow and consolidates its Presence in the Golf Segment

MIRA Hotels & Resorts Group continues to grow and consolidates its position as a key operator for golf resorts on the Italian market. Thanks to the advisory service provided by Colliers Italy, the long-term agreement with CPI Holding for the management of the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA has been finalized. The transaction is part of a broader programme of investment for CPI Holding and consolidation of the golf resort segment for Mira Hotels & Resort.

 

Verona, 15 November 2021 - The growth of MIRA Hotels & Resorts Group, a long-established organisation in the hotel industry, continues with the announcement of the new strategic partnership with CPI Holding for the management of the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA, achieved thanks also to the valuable support of Colliers Italy. The Acaya Golf Resort & SPA (www.acayagolfresort.com) is part of the broader investment programme that CPI Holding is pursuing in the Puglia region, considering it of fundamental importance for developing the Italian tourism sector.

The MIRA Group will manage the renowned golf resort for the next eight years, immediately launching an important plan of infrastructural implementations and restyling that, thanks to the intervention of CPI Italy, will lead to the renovation of the resort's 97 rooms, restaurants and lobby, the Antica Masseria San Pietro and the 18-hole golf course.

The project concept is that of a "Bioactive Resort" with an Apulian flavour in which to experience a distinctive all-Italian atmosphere in total comfort. Everything will be defined down to the smallest detail in order to reiterate its strong identity and provide a new guest experience to be enjoyed by clients as early as the forthcoming reopening, scheduled for spring 2022.

Frontline protagonists, MIRA Hotels & Resorts Chairman Alessandro Vadagnini and Group CEO Daniela Righi, who stated: “For us, Acaya was the starting point in the golf segment, in which we see one of the cornerstones of our future growth. We are excited and proud of this agreement and, thanks to the support of CPI Italy, we are certain that we will bring this marvellous resort to its maximum splendour, as it deserves.”

Through his important words full of determination, Chairman Alessandro Vadagnini revealed that, in the coming years, he wants to achieve the ambitious goal of hosting international golf events at Acaya.

The acquisition of the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA by MIRA Hotels & Resorts confirms the vision of the two founders and therefore outlines the Group’s major expansion plan, increasingly aimed at the world of golf and looking to a future filled with goals to be achieved.

“We are delighted to have acted as advisors to owners and tenants, as in this way we have been able to achieve an optimal solution, able to create value for both. We are also pleased that we have preserved the Italian management style that is often a key factor in the leisure sector. In particular, we believe in the development of facilities that can fully encompass certain essential aspects of hospitality with an international appeal. We are certain that our golf and leisure proposition is a winner in that area," commented Vincenzo Zubbo, Business Development, Colliers Italy.
