International Bachelor‘s degree in Hospitality Management: Option ’Leisure and Luxury Hotel Management’

The hotel industry has gone through huge changes. It was originally centered on accommodation and restaurants, but nowadays it has to integrate the skills and facilities from the world of entertainment (casinos, spas and other forms of entertainment). This sector no longer wants to just sell overnight accommodation. It wants to offer its clients experiences. Therefore recruiters are looking for multi-skilled managers with broad technical knowledge and skills relating to a wide range of products and equipment. The option ‘Leisure and Luxury Hotel Management’ in Year 3 of the BA degree trains professionals capable of responding to such challenges.

What are resorts and leisure parks?

The term ‘resort’ refers to a hotel complex, i.e. a hotel which, in addition to accommodation, offers its customers services and activities for leisure, relaxation or sports. Hotel complexes are well-used for rest and leisure and therefore have specific facilities: swimming pool, sauna, spa, fitness room, casino, golf course, thermal facility, ski slopes, etc.

The world of resorts is vast and varied. The term applies to :

  • high-class hotel complexes belonging to the world of luxury
  • holiday clubs and villages
  • attraction parks with a hotel complex
  • casinos

Various professions for multi-skilled managers

The leisure hotel sector gives you access to a wide range of jobs in fields, such as:

  • seaside or mountain hotels
  • tourist residences
  • outdoor hotels
  • amusement parks
  • theme parks
  • holiday clubs
  • spa hotels
  • gambling establishments
  • cruise ships
  • residences for senior citizens

After graduating, these future managers must be able to manage not only the traditional operations of accommodation and catering, but also the leisure services and facilities that are available in their organisation.
