Our Story

It is our mission to facilitate our guests’ “a good day,”
and assist you with our utmost hospitality.

S

taying at a hotel that one wants to stay at. In the past, I’ve been able to visit many countries across the globe. While many of those were on business trips, I did have some leisurely excursions as well. San Francisco, Silicone Valley, New York, Colorado, Texas, Miami, Florida, Barcelona, Milan, Florence, Geneva, Monaco, Toulouse, Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Dalian, Seoul, Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, and the list goes on.

Wherever I travelled, I always picked my hotels looking at the number of stars that was awarded to the hotels—the more the stars, the better hospitality it provides.

Then in 2004, I found one hotel that really struck out to me. It was the Amandari in Bali. The first time I walked in, they welcomed me home, as if they had known me for years. Wherever this hotel may be, their top-notch hospitality makes me feel right at home. Incredible, I must say.

In 2006, I was able to find another fantastic hotel. The Hotel Okura in Tokyo. Supposedly there’s an underground passageway connecting the hotel to the US Embassy—a neat bit of trivia for you. No one here knew who I was, but with one glimpse of a computer screen, they noticed who I was, and welcomed me back. I hadn’t been there in a long while, but their welcoming nature made me feel warm inside. Foodwise, Sushi Kyubei along with high-end bars were housed there, and all in all was fantastic.

That being said, while hotels that offer special treatment to their clients are indeed nice to stay at, you pay for what you receive, and most of us cannot afford to stay at such places on a whim. On the other hand, hotels on the cheaper end of the scale offer services on par with what you pay for, obviously. And when you go out on a limb and stay in an inexpensive room at luxurious hotels, these tend to be tiny, and force its guests to refresh themselves in the lobbies or the cafes. This, while possible, lacks in privacy, and furthermore, takes away from the whole experience of staying at a hotel to relax, away from your daily pressures.

I

can’t remember when exactly I started thinking, but after experiencing all of the above, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to build from ground-up, my own hotel brand-one that I would enjoy staying at. When I initially started pondering what factors would be the most important, the list consisted of things such as extravagant facilities, world-class hospitality, superb service and amenities, and so on. But it dawned on me:

That really isn’t what most of us are seeking in a hotel. Perhaps, something less expensive; and there isn’t a demand for luxurious French or Japanese cuisine, but there is demand for places that serve good food for cheap. Services may not be the world-class service you get from a five-star restaurant, but leaves its guests sated and happy.

What all of this came down to is to provide our guests with a spacious room that one could spend a relaxing day in.

For a Good Day

ur hotel may lack in the amenities you may find in other fancier hotels, such as pools, spas, gyms, or cafes, but when one considers the opportunities offered outside of our establishment-local dining and cafes-you may not view these as problems. We’ll happily recommend places based on what our clients may be seeking, and make necessary reservations if wished for.

If going out for dinner is not something you’d like to do, our guest rooms have fully stocked kitchens along with a refrigerator for you to use if you wished to slap something together in the comfort of your own room. Furthermore, our guest rooms also have in-room washer/dryers for your usage, which may alleviate some of the stresses you may have going home with a pile of dirty laundry, or, accommodate longer stays at our hotel by being able to bring less luggage.
