In the second quarter of 2022, Selina, the rapidly expanding lifestyle hotel brand aimed at Millennial and Gen Z visitors, will celebrate the inauguration of eight new facilitiesin Greece, Australia, Portugal, Panama, the United States, Morocco, and Israel.
During the same period, eight additional properties were signed in Australia, the United States, Greece, Mexico, Portugal, Panama and Israel, representing a 17 percent increase over Q1 2021.
By developing destination experiences that appeal to a large and underserved group of travelers who Selina estimates spend approximately $350 billion annually on travel, these new properties support the company’s ambition to reinvent the future of travel.
These new agreements and openings mark the end of an extremely fruitful quarter for Selina, which also saw the release of an enhanced app to improve the guest experience and connectivity, as well as a partnership with TechnoArt to provide digital nomads with the support, resources and guidance they need to grow and expand their businesses.
Rafael Museri, Selina’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are excited to continue Selina’s expansion across six continents, enabling us to further immerse our brand’s programming, events, recreation, restaurants and nightlife into the fabric of local communities with destinations that are authentic and relevant to locals and travelers alike.”
“In doing so, we are able to create value for local real estate owners, jobs for local residents and dynamic, engaging travel experiences for our loyal network of adventure seekers, remote workers, and digital nomads. The breadth of our portfolio and customer base together with the improvements we’re making to our platform help to drive revenue during high and low travel seasons and give us confidence that we will continue to be able to scale responsibly and in a sustainable manner over the coming years.”
