A collaboration between award-winning GOCO Hospitality and Paramount Hotels & Resorts (PHR FZ-LLC), an exclusive Licensee of Paramount Pictures, aspires to set a rare standard in luxury hospitality and wellness
Having produced some of the most memorable films including “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Titanic” and “The Godfather”, Paramount Pictures, the undisputed global film icon, is synonymous with creativity and entertainment.
Originated to translate the same bold imagination and inspiring talent into a refreshing guest experience, the newly formed Paramount Hotels & Resorts (PHR FZ-LLC) will develop properties using a creative process that’s been refined over the past 100 years.
Initial sites in various stages of development include Brazil, the Caribbean, Indonesia, Qatar, Russia, South Africa, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Target locations include both capital/gateway cities and popular resort destinations. Individual properties will be designed to appeal to the business traveler, leisure traveler, or both, based on the dynamics of the local market. Each property will be conceived as a major release featuring welcoming spaces, exciting lifestyle food and beverage outlets and luxurious accommodations.
Complementing this rollout will be an innovative Wellness & Fitness brand developed by GOCO Hospitality, a leading wellness hospitality consulting and management company.
