Scottish-based Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI) is to launch a new management company operating in the Caribbean. The company is named The Liming and an announcement will be made regarding which properties it will be managing soon. One already announced is The Liming Bequia on St Vincent and the Grenadines, which is due to open in November 2018.
ICMI Managing Director Norbert Lieder has experience in that part of the world having managed hotels in St Lucia and Kitts for five years. Also involved in the venture are developer Jonathan Milne of FM Group and real estate investor Kelly Glass of K-Group.
Lieder commented, “We have a track record of developing and managing profitable hotels which are known for exemplar service and attention to detail.
“While there are a number of great hotels across the Caribbean we believe there is a real gap in the market for a new concept of relaxation with no gimmicks or distractions – just a fabulous product and the best service on offer.
“Our intention is to replicate our success in Scotland, where we now manage 14 properties, across the Caribbean islands.”
ICMI’s portfolio of boutique hotels includes Cromlix House near Dunblane, owned by tennis star Andy Murray. The company was originally founded by senior management at Inverlochy Castle Hotel in 2009.
