Alexander Bohnekamp

CEO, H’Mark Hosts
H’Mark Hosts plans to expand to more than 20 properties worldwide by 2020

Alexander Bohnekamp has been at the forefront of rebranding what was last year called the H Hospitality Collection to H’Mark Hosts. H’Mark Hosts is the hospitality arm of Abu Dhabi Capital Group and is currently operating its brands of H Hotels & Resorts (Dubai & Seychelles), CentreVille (Montenegro) and White Label Hotels (Villa Diyafa in Rabat, Morocco and the Bulgari London) as well as developing restaurant concepts.

Having added six properties to its portfolio in the past 18 months, H’Mark Hosts plans to expand to more than 20 properties worldwide by 2020. Over the coming 18 months, the brands will expand into Abu Dhabi, Sri Lanka, Bahrain and Luxembourg.

Bohnekamp tells Hotelier: “The group aims to create the most interesting and inspiring spaces it operates in, whether tented camps, business hotels, luxury retreats or airside properties. The collection provides unique buildings and management solutions to maximise owner investment combined with the most boutique service approach.”
