Auberge Resorts is expanding its portfolio through a new partnership with the Libra Group, owners of Grace Hotels. Through the partnership, Auberge Resorts will welcome five award-winning Grace Hotels properties from Europe and the U.S. into the portfolio, with the addition of more Grace properties scheduled for the coming years.

“Our strategic partnership with the Libra Group will expand our portfolio of acclaimed properties and build on Auberge Resorts Collection’s reputation as a premier hospitality brand,” said Dan Friedkin, chairman of Auberge Resorts Collection. “We have found like-minded partners who share our desire to deliver exceptional quality and unparalleled guest experiences.”

Among the acquired properties include Grace Santorini and Grace Mykonos (Greece), Mayflower Inn & Spa (Washington, CT), White Barn Inn & Spa (Kennebunk, ME), and the Vanderbilt Hotel (Newport, RI). Over the next few years, the collection will scale even further with the addition of other properties that are under development in Athens, Kalamata, Kea, and a second resort in Santorini, Greece; Marrakech, Morocco; Buenos Aires, Argentina; as well as St. Moritz, Switzerland. With the addition of the Grace properties, Auberge is further positioning itself as one of the top international portfolios of luxury hotels across the globe.

“Auberge Resorts Collection’s reputation for operational excellence and our shared passion for creating intimate and elegant hotels made this a compelling opportunity for us,” says George Logothetis, chairman and CEO of the Libra Group. “The hotels are in extremely good hands with Auberge, whose existing and pipeline properties are highly complementary with our hotels. This is a testament to the shared thinking between our organizations. With our new strategic interest, we look forward to participating in the next chapter of Auberge Resorts Collection story.”
