Global hospitality

LHG represents the collective hotel and hospitality interests of the Libra Group, a privately owned international business with operating companies active in 35 countries across six continents. Our hospitality interests span hotel and restaurant ownership, management and development throughout the world.

LHG is growing its portfolio of properties via both acquisition and management. The group includes two boutique hotel brands: Aria Hotels, that is focused on Greece and Spain, and Auberge Resorts Collection, incorporating Grace Hotels which was founded by the Libra Group in 2007. 

Currently, our hotel and hospitality interests span North, South and Central America, the Mediterranean, Europe and North Africa, and we have a substantial pipeline of properties under development and in negotiation. Other industry sectors within Libra Group’s global network of operating companies include aviation, real estate, renewable energy, shipping, and diversified investments.

We maintain close relationships with the world's leading hospitality groups and one of our real estate subsidiaries: Elandis, has worked with Hyatt Hotels to develop Hyatt Place-branded hotels in major cities and towns in Brazil; and Calma Capital, a real estate investment manager and operator, active across all market segments and geographies in Spain.
