Following an initial partnership in 2019 with four of Ultima Collection’s properties in Crans Montana, Megève, Courchevel Belvédère, and Genève, the new expanded partnership extends to Ultima Gstaad and Ultima Corfu, with five of the six properties now featured in Preferred’s global portfolio as part of the Preferred Residences collection. As one of five global collections in the Preferred Hotels & Resorts portfolio, Preferred Residences offers the highest level of luxurious living through a curated collection of residential and long-stay accommodations that offer the comfort and security of home with luxury resort amenities in desirable destinations around the world. Ultima Gstaad stands as the sole property to join Preferred’s L.V.X. Collection, which comprises renowned independent properties featuring the finest accommodations coupled with attentive, engaging, and exclusive personal service to provide guests with memorable experiences through exceptional dining, entertainment, and wellness.
According to Gilles Repond, Sales Director at Ultima Collection, “Partnering with Preferred Hotels & Resorts was a natural step in our goal to provide exceptional experiences in idyllic destinations across Europe. Preferred offers Ultima guests membership-free experiences that perfectly combine the privacy of luxury residences, bespoke amenities, and personalised services with the same quality of a world-class hotel stay. This partnership highlights the Ultima Collection portfolio as one of the world’s most illustrious residences and hotel.”
On the partnership, Regional Director for Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Priscilla Haryadi commented, “As we prepare for a meaningful return to travel in the coming months, it is more important than ever to strengthen relationships with valued hotel partners and to align on strategy as we move forward, together.
