Who we are

Let's not tell them about paradise, let's make them imagine it! Have you ever imagined a group of hotels which symbolises everything you are looking for your holidays? Enotel Hotels & Resorts presents a group of hotels, where its personality refers to a world of experiences and its greatest commitment is to eternalise moments. 

Over the years, based on sustained growth and a scale of values dedicated to providing memorable moments for its clients, the time has come and we have rethought the positioning of the Enotel brand. Today our communication model is closer, therefore increasingly emotional, which for us has never been so essential.
