Since 1993, we’ve been crafting a portfolio which today includes 300+ privately owned and operated hotels that reflect the vision of independent hoteliers—or “Originals”—with a passion for culturally-rooted hospitality and cutting-edge design and architecture. From the pioneering boutique hotels of New York, Paris, and London, to the rising stars of Mexico City, and Nairobi, to remote mountaintops, hidden beaches, and off-the-beaten-path escapes, each independent hotel in our hand-picked collection is a wholly unique creative expression, steeped in the history, culture, and the nature of its environment.
Across the world, our hotels anchor a community of travelers united in the pursuit of inspired environments, genuine local culture, and transformative, boundary-pushing adventures. Against a backdrop of new parameters and shifting norms, we embark on an ever-evolving movement forged on purpose, connectedness, and curiosity. We invite you to join the journey into the Promadic.
We love to share the stories of the people behind our hotels—the ones with the imaginative spirit that shapes exactly what we stand for. Whether owners or operators, designers or developers, our Originals are always outstanding personalities and pioneering thinkers. They are the engines behind revolutionary hospitality. They shape the way we travel, they challenge the very definition of a hotel, and they inform on what’s to come in the industry.
Directions is our magazine published every second year, spotlighting new perspectives in travel, culture, design, ecology, and architecture. After years of unending global challenges, what are we collectively seeking? We found the answers swirling around in front of us, in the idea of joy. This year’s edition explores the spectrum of pleasure within travel, looking at what is influencing some of the spirited and energetic new communities around the world.
The Design Hotels™️ Book tells the story of handpicked hotels and trailblazing concepts around the globe, and of the original hoteliers who brought them boldly to life. Released once a year, the coveted compendium is an established reference source among leading architects, designers, and the creative community.
In our most ambitious book yet—Taste and Place, we have called upon leading writers, photographers, creative chefs, and culinary innovators to delve into forward-looking ideas and inspiring practices around food through our hotels, destinations, and larger community.
To get us closer to our shared goal of better travel, we have started a mental packing list for the road. The good traveler is a considerate and respectful traveler who moves with the lightest of steps possible and equips both mind and body for their journeys. This list is one we intend to keep working on, as best we can, one step at a time. With you.
