Hotel Development from the ground up
Welcome to Luxury Frontiers, where hotel and land owners go to create an ideal partnership when it comes to taking their project and resort development from conceptualization to execution and beyond.
Luxury Frontiers has a breadth of knowledge and experience to bring to the design table for your next project. Best part is although we’ve done it all, no two solutions have ever been the same.
On-Site Addition to Existing Resorts
For owners with available land adjacent to existing hotels, we craft fresh guest experiences by developing unique additional room inventory. A lower development cost, shorter timeline, rate premiums, as well as the benefits of present infrastructure and operations equate to quick payback, high ROI, and a myriad of marketing benefits.
Satellite Addition to Existing Resorts
Whether a site is 20 minutes or a few hours away from an existing resort, developing a satellite experiential offering is an ideal way to benefit from present operations while bringing an exciting new product to the market.
Standalone Greenfield Sites
On greenfield sites, we provide our unique expertise to develop trophy properties or one-of-a-kind assets as part of a master plan. Beyond providing architectural and interior design, we build out a project’s entire design package to include the site plan, infrastructure, and back of house.
Refurbishments & Rebuilds
Rejuvenating experiential resorts and lodges is the perfect opportunity to introduce a contemporary take on the guest experience and physical product, as well as streamline back of house areas and upgrade infrastructure with state-of-the-art, sustainable solutions.
We have the ability to build high-design structures with a minimal footprint, offering owners the flexibility to use these structures on a semi-permanent or seasonal basis, for upscale fly camps or nomadic journeys, and even for hosting one-off events.
With the market success of branded luxury vacation residences, tented residential villas can be a dramatic and celebrated addition to a full-service resort or master planned leisure community. Especially in locations with strict zoning regulations, experiential residences offer buyers both luxurious immersion in nature areas and also participation in a pioneering and environmentally-sensitive vacation home concept.

- Full-service design

Luxury Frontiers draws upon its unmatched experience developing alternative, light-on-earth resort products in order to provide a holistic approach across all stages of the development lifecycle.
Our projects aren’t just talked about, but they set the standard and raise the bar when it comes to some of the most innovative, mindful, and transformative experiential journeys on the globe. And here are a few examples why.

Even though the concept is perfect for exotic and wilderness locations, we found a strong interest from resort and hotel owners in some European countries where the restrictions imposed by environmental authorities and urban zone planning do not allow to expand the resort capacity/build new units. Tents and tree houses are very flexible formats and an acceptable compromise/solution towards the public administration concerns and constraints in sensitive places.
