Solmar Group to Introduce Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort in Cabo San Lucas

LOS CABOS, MX. April 26, 2017 - The Solmar Group is expanding its footprint in Los Cabos with the opening of a new luxury resort on the region's Pacific coast. The hotel will be part of Rancho San Lucas, an 834-acre oceanfront Real Estate and Resort development, also under the umbrella of the hospitality group.

Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort will be the newest addition to a collection of five existing properties. The resort will enjoy an unmatched location complete with private roads and surrounded by 1.2 miles of pristine shoreline and golden sand dunes.

"We are delighted to be part of Rancho San Lucas' initial phase and look forward to continue growing the brand's presence in this region," said Ricardo Orozco, vice president of operations. "This will be the continuation of the Solmar Legacy, which has remained a key player in Los Cabos tourism since the late 60s," he added.

Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas will be modeled after the award-winning, Grand Solmar Land's End Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas. The resort, which is slated to receive its first visitors December 20, is being built with sense of place top of mind, featuring architectural styles that are closely integrated with the surrounding environment, coastal palettes, hand-chiseled stone and intricate ceramic designs that represent the embodiment of a contemporary Baja lifestyle.

The resort will also include Solmar's signature range of deluxe amenities including full kitchens with marble counters, private terraces, separate seating areas and ceramic-tiled baths, some offering ocean views. Other amenities include an extensive salt water lagoon, a mini salt water park with slides and pools for children to enjoy, beauty salon, spa, fitness center, two story fine dining restaurant, mini market and infinity edge pools with swim-up bars.

Revenue Management: Technology and Big Data
Like most businesses, hotels are relying on technology and data to drive almost every area of their operations, but perhaps this is especially true for hotel Revenue Managers. There has been an explosion of technology tools which generate a mountain of data – all in an effort to generate profitable pricing strategies. It falls to Revenue Managers to determine which tools best support their operations and then to integrate them efficiently into their existing systems. Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, and Online Reputation Management software are basic tools; others include channel managers, benchmark reports, rate shopping tools and review systems, to name a few. The benefits of technology tools which automate large segments of a Revenue Manager’s business are enormous. Freed from the time-consuming process of manual data entry, and having more accurate data available, allows Revenue Managers to focus on analysis, strategies and longer-term decision-making. Still, for most hotels, the amount of data that these tools generate can be overwhelming and so another challenge is to figure out how to effectively utilize it. Not surprisingly, there are some new tech tools that can help to do exactly that. There are cloud-based analytics tools that provide a comprehensive overview of hotel data on powerful, intuitive dashboards. The goal is to generate a clear picture, at any moment in time, of where your hotel is at in terms of the essentials – from benchmarking to pricing to performance – bringing all the disparate streams of data into one collated dashboard. Another goal is to eliminate any data discrepancies between finance systems, PMS, CRM and forecasting systems. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address all these important developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
