SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dezer Properties, a full service real estate company and owner of the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, today announced that newly-formed International Resorts Management Group would be the new management company for the hotel, and that they have simultaneously entered into a relationship with the renowned Leading Hotels of the World.
International Resorts Management will be led by Jens Grafe, the property’s Vice President/General Manager and one of the hospitality industry’s most respected professionals. Prior to his involvement with Trump International, Grafe was President of Rafael Hotels USA, a luxury hotel Management Company with hotels in Europe and the U.S. He also served as Managing Director of one of their hotels, Turnberry Isle Resort and Club, where he oversaw the property’s evolution into a five-star resort.
“While we are extremely grateful to Sonesta, our prior management company, for all of their efforts,” said Michael Dezer, Principal of Dezer Properties, “we felt that with Jens’ (Grafe) experience, a unique opportunity had presented itself for us to establish our own luxury brand.”
Concurrent with the introduction of International Resorts Management Group, Trump International Beach Resort has entered into a relationship with The Leading Hotels of the World, the prestigious hospitality organization representing the world’s finest hotels and resorts. With more than 440 members in 80 countries, The Leading Hotels of the World offers the largest collection of luxury hotels, resorts and spas – from grand palaces to intimate city hideaways, and from luxury tent enclaves to expansive self-contained resorts and private island retreats.
“The Trump name is a world-renowned symbol for luxury and elegance,” adds Jens Grafe. “The level of service, lavish amenities and spectacular ambiance presented at the Trump International Beach Resort is a testament to the excellence and prestige represented by brand’s name. The creation of the new management team, along with our association with The Leading Hotels of the World, will only enhance our capabilities to further the property’s offerings.”
“The acclaim that Trump International has already garnered as an independent hotel, in combination with the stellar reputation of the Trump brand, assured our decision to assume direct supervision of the operations,” continues Dezer. “Trump International will enjoy further success through the incorporation of a hands-on and focused on-site management team as it will up the ante on the level of service and luxury that the hotel will be able to provide its guests.”
Located at 18001 Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, Trump International is a lavish oceanfront oasis. This contemporary Mobil 4-star resort features its own private and pristine beach, plus a delightful grotto-style pool complex with two pools, fountains, waterfalls and cabanas.
