From pioneers of extended-stay to innovative, multi-segment, pan-European hoteliers.
Cycas began with a focus on the emerging extended-stay hotel sector in Europe. Our journey began with the Staybridge Suites Liverpool, IHG’s first extended stay hotel outside of North America.
In the years that followed, we’ve established a reputation for excellence with guests, employees, investment partners and brands, with innovation part of our DNA. We opened the first European ‘double-decker’ hotels for IHG, Marriott and Hyatt, as well as partnering to launch the ‘and Suites’ brand extensions for Radisson and Holiday Inn Express.
Our job is to help our people develop along their journey with Cycas. Proprietary programmes such as our Cyfari training & development scheme help us shape high-performings teams from exceptional individuals, and our award-winning P&C team build a culture rooted in our core values – growth, integrity, fun and teamwork.
With the backing of our majority shareholder, Hua Kee, a family-owned Thai conglomerate, we’ve substantially broadened our horizons, establishing the strongest and most diverse hotel management platform in Europe, with best-in-class hotel support teams and a suite of proprietary Commercial and Financial tools and systems.
With operations in twelve countries and with six global brand partners, we manage hotels from select-service to full-service, boutique, luxury, independent, extended stay and serviced apartments, partnering with a wide range of investment partners on the basis of hotel management agreements, co-investments and leases.
In our second decade, we remain true to our values and culture, focussed on inspiring and developing the strongest hotel talent in Europe. Our commitment to talent enabled us to continue outperforming during the pandemic, positioning the company strongly for growth in the coming years.
