At Newmark we live by the promise of ‘EXPERIENCE AUTHENTIC’. We create memorable and unique experiences for guests - authentic to the location, environs, and people of each of our properties.
From gracious boutique luxury hotels, vibrant city hotels, inspiring safari lodges run according to sound conservation principles, to blissful island getaways - we curate occasions to excite, serve, sooth and take care of our guests. Occasions that are complemented by sensorial cuisine directed by a group executive chef, enhanced by group sommelier selected wine choices.
Established in 2007, Newmark has its roots in Cape Town, and continues to expand throughout Africa. Our vision is to provide diverse and unique properties the opportunity to belong to a group that provides a collective home, without them losing their unique identity.
Over time we have fine-tuned first class execution, to all of our endeavours and daily operations. Newmark’s extensive experience in managing prestigious and distinctive properties is matched by its determination to help owners realise their worth. This is made possible by a highly focused, motivated, and skilled executive team, led by industry visionary, Neil Markovitz. The team’s collaborative proficiency and expertise enables the company to offer a comprehensive range of management services, specially tailored to suit each property.
THESE SERVICES INCLUDE:
- Central Reservations
- Information Technology
- Human Resources
- Business Development
- Food & Beverage specialisation
Newmark’s forte lies in identifying the unique attributes of each property and bringing these to the marketplace’s attention through a bespoke yet efficient model. The company is guided by the belief that every action needs to be financially sound. This approach, which involves first establishing solid infrastructure before pursuing other goals, has driven its success. In line with Newmark’s custom, each milestone that is reached is celebrated, whether it is the addition of a new property to the portfolio, or a staff member’s accomplishment.
