In our latest podcast, Roger Allen talks to Alexander Schneider, President at Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts in Dubai. Alexander shares his observations about the latest challenges within the Luxury Hotel segment and suggests approaches to resolving them. 

Contextually, the luxury segment provides great opportunities to step in. Industry growth is impressive, and the new consumption profile that guests are demonstrating also carries great potential.

“It is like ‘Last night on Earth’. Guests want to stay longer and are willing to spend significantly more. There is an influx of hedonism.” - says Alexander.

In this mind-opening episode, listeners will gain valuable insights about

  • market behaviour and guests' needs
  • the importance and implications of understanding the target group of any business
  • the essential elements for building a Luxury brand in hospitality.

Alexander is very inspirational. In this talk, he reveals the magic question that he always asks himself before important decisions. 

Alexander has a proven track record of success and 20+ years of experience in the hotel industry. He gained management experience at significant hotel operators like Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi UAE, Rixos Properties UAE, Grand Hyatt, Germany, and Casa Camper. Alexander holds an Associate Degree with Honors from the Culinary Institute of America, New York, USA.

Expect a ~20-minute casual talk with smart thoughts to ignite some spark.
