The faces

Michael Widmann

“Hospitality is the petri dish of humanity – to succeed, we must cooperate cross-border.”

Christian N. Walter

“The world needs more awesome hotels. Happy to help.”


“Hospitality is generosity, welcoming and establishing stable and enduring relationships. The notion of hospitality is perhaps the oldest expression of altruism in human culture.”


“Hospitality is the amalgam between travelling and exploring new destinations & feeling home, away from home.”
