The Company

creating a new way of hospitality
Miners Hospitality is a diversified one-stop hotel development company, focusing on providing hotel owners and travelers with unique hospitality solutions through meaningful innovation. With our holistic approach we are assuring desirable returns on investment with the joy of a positively recognized brand.

By offering complete hotel development solutions we create synergy for our clients with a more economic approach than conventional management or consulting companies. At Miners we place great value on efficiency at every step of the development process.

The Revolution of Hospitality

“We find ourselves today in a marketplace where change happens on an everyday basis, whether we accept it or not. If we want to succeed and keep our competitive advantage over others, we must accept change, adapt to it and include it in the way we are doing business.”

“At Miners Hospitality ‘change’ has become the core strength of how we manage and develop our business. We accept the fast moving pace of our industry and grow with it. This means we have to constantly innovate to stay ahead of larger competitors in the industry. Yet as a smaller sized company we can afford constant change and innovation, while our larger competitors struggle due to their global scale. This has become our main competitive advantage.”

“We are proud to see Miners Hospitality, which was originally founded in 2013 as a small hotel management company, become a multi- angled business, offering complete one-stop hotel development solutions within just a short period of time. Today, we offer everything from concept production, brand formation, interior design, project development and hotel management, while we have investments in WebRezPro, a cloud-based property management system (PMS), and own a successful restaurant franchise MAYs Urban Thai Dine.”
“We are a company with large ears. We listen to our clients, customers and employees and make sure we emphasize on what is being said. This is how we succeed and assure desirable returns for our clients. It is no science, but simple listening to what the majority in the market demands. We want to grow with our clients, customers and employees and want them to grow with us. Hence our commitment to their success is as crucial as to our own.”

“On the other hand we strive to do good by doing well in every aspect of our business. With the establishment of a partnership with Glion Institute of Higher Education, one of the World’s best Hotel Management Schools, we have created Miners Unite, providing unprivileged children with an education in the trade of hospitality. As our company grows, so will our ability to do good, and Miners Unite will be able to develop more ways to support people and the environment.”
