Built in the early twentieth century with the name of “Grand Hotel Imperial” and expertly renovated in 2009, the hotel is located near the famous Corso Umberto, offering a spectacular view of the historic center and the bay of Giardini Naxos. The main strengths during the execution of the assignment:

  1. Recently built hotel
  2. Differentiation of the product in the reference segment of the 5 stars of Taormina
  3. Location, characteristics and outlook suitable for an international operator.

The execution involved the search for a series of national and international hotel operators who could enhance the product taking into account the wishes of the owner company. The activities carried out involved the creation of an information memorandum of the highest quality, capable of attracting a very heterogeneous audience of operators. Subsequently, following the solicitation of the first non-binding expressions of interest, site inspections and on-site inspections followed for an in-depth knowledge of the asset. The research has generated multiple offers, among which the most attractive ones have been selected. The activities involved the drafting and negotiation of a binding termsheet prior to the signing of the management contract.
