Royal Demeure Hotel Group has opened new offices in Belgravia, London – moving its headquarters from Rome and appointing a new senior team to lead the Italian luxury hotel group.

Royal Demeure intends to capitalise on the growing luxury travel and hospitality industry. The company plans to develop the brand by building on the reputation of the renowned Hotel d’Inghilterra in Rome, while seeking opportunities for future expansion and investment in all of its six properties.

Part of TDA Capital, a private Italian-owned investment company that specialises in luxury hospitality, Royal Demeure is headed by TDA Capital group chief executive officer, Professor Luigi De Simone Niquesa, who has moved from Rome to be based in London. Luigi's newly-appointed team includes group sales and marketing director, Greg Ward; chief financial officer, Colin Castelino; and marketing and communications manager, Charlotte Gray.

Greg Ward comments: “I’m thrilled to be working for such an iconic group of hotels as Royal Demeure. Situated in cultural capitals like Rome and Florence, each property has many individual qualities – which I look forward to highlighting for the benefit of travellers looking for a truly memorable luxurious experience. Additionally, with plans for future growth and investment, it is an extremely exciting time to join the company.”

Luigi De Simone Niquesa adds:  “We have created a dynamic and experienced new team that will lead us through the next stages of our development plans. The experience in luxury customer experiences and strong commercial background that each new team member brings makes them instrumental in developing and shaping the growth of the hotel group. They join us at a time when we are looking to strengthen the collection’s positioning within the industry.”
