there is a new kid on the block, looking to make a HUGE impact on Gay Travel. G Worldwide Luxuty resorts.
“Our goal is to establish a new standard of luxury in hospitality for the LGBT community, their friends, families and supporters by delivering a unique combination of style and comfort, along with impeccable service that celebrates individuality.”
Introducing G Worldwide the first ever LGBT Luxury Lifestyle Resort Collection Brand. An inspiring collection of hotels, resorts and vacation clubs, specifically designed to fulfill the needs and desires of the LGBT traveler has emerged. And they are making a VERY BIG SPLASH!
The New York based company has plans for New York City, Las Vegas, Wilton Manors, Florida and Palm Springs, California. The first project is Florida. A 700,000 square-foot resort at an estimated cost of $80 million in Wilton Manors. The luxury resort, scheduled for completion in 2011, will bring over 500 new jobs to the area.
David Holzapfel, COO of G Worldwide, is enthusiastic about the project. “The reason we chose Wilton Manors for our first project is because we felt that South Florida is a wonderful location.” Holzapfel likes the community of Wilton Manors, stating that the company has already garnered a great deal of support for the project.
The resort will feature numerous lavish amenities. “We will have a fitness center, spa, nightclub, and a variety of dining options, all on property,” Holzapfel says. In addition, the resort also plans to offer a rooftop lounge and garden, as well as an art gallery and banquet center.
G Resort Wilton Manors also plans on attracting 25 major events to the resort, including conferences that will ultimately generate revenue for local businesses.
In addition, G Resort will feature a timeshare component, allowing visitors to purchase units in the building. “Timeshare brings a lot of value to the property, especially from the developer’s point of view,” states Holzapfel. “That component of the resort will only be about 20 percent of inventory, but will provide us with a steady stream of customers.”
The company wants to be the first-ever LGBT luxury-lifestyle resort and brand with a goal of amassing a collection of hotels, resorts, and vacation clubs specifically designed to fulfill the needs and desires of the LGBT traveler!
