Often our clients have a desire or personal ambition to own a hotel and resort but don’t know where to start. At BHMAsia we welcome the opportunity to talk with owners about their dreams and needs, and provide our experience and thoughts as a sounding board for them. Often talking through the ideas and options helps owners quickly formulate a course of action and identify the next steps they need to take to realise their dream.
Before launching into a hospitality project, it is critical to formulate a solid business plan. Ultimately this will be a requirement for any financing, so it is important to invest enough time and money in feasibility work to ensure the final direction to be taken will deliver the end goal. At BHMAsia we we don’t just do the traditional feasibility study. Our studies start off at a very high level, and look at every possible alternative, both traditional and non-traditional. Due to the competitive nature of the hotel industry it is necessary to be able to develop a business plan that does not follow traditional norms, one that can be out of the box, and looks at a mixture of possible scenarios and solutions. This lateral thinking is a hallmark of BHMAsia , where often non-conventional solutions yield the best results.
Pre-Opening & Technical Services
Once the direction for the project is set, the next phase is the execution of the plan. Often Owners underestimate how critical it is to engage a hotel consulting firm at the beginning of the project. This often results in a badly planned project, that ultimately will require changes at significant cost to the owner. One major consideration always overlooked is the need to start marketing and sales activities for the hotel at least 12 months before opening. At BHMAsia we adopt a very pragmatic and hands on approach to our technical services consulting. Once again our “out of the box” and “lateral thinking” often result in unique solutions that not just save money for the owner but add something special to the project. BHMAsia is not handicapped by tradition or policy, and can move quickly to help the owner successful complete their hotel on time, on budget.
