CEO Mr Larmour hosts an HTMi Switzerland staff event to congratulate the staff team for all efforts, dedication and successes in steering HTMi Switzerland towards our vision of being “a leading hotel management institute in the world”. Our vision remains in place since 2009, and SHGI, Swiss Hospitality Group International, will support and accelerate HTMi Switzerland to achieve the vision.
HTMi was founded in early 1990s in the United Kingdom by Prof. R. Larmour, and Ian Larmour. In 1999 HTMi moved to Switzerland, following Prof. R. Larmour location search (including Soerenberg), organisation and academic and university partnership setup. Prof. R. Larmour became HTMi’s Academic Dean for the first 3 semesters.
Congratulations to Mr. Ciprian Voinea for a great career progression with the award winning Park Hotel, Vitznau, Lake Luzern, Switzerland.
The Park Hotel Vitznau (http://www.parkhotel-vitznau.ch/en) represents a true jewel on the banks of Lake Lucerne. This historical property has been recently and extensively renovated, fully embracing the notion of preserving the past and shaping the future, while being characterised by three main themes: Wine & Dine, Art & Culture and the Health & Wealth.
Out of the three themes, the wine and dine concept has been brought to a new level, meeting the highest expectation of Swiss quality and creativity through its two Michelin star awarded restaurant, FOCUS (http://restaurant-focus.ch/en/) and PRISMA (http://www.parkhotel-vitznau.ch/en/wine-dine/restaurant-prisma). PRISMA – awarded with one Michelin Star and 16 Gault Millau points – provides a unique atmospheric view all year round across the lake towards the mountains, while focus – awarded with two Michelin Star and 18 Gault Millau points – guides the guests into a trip around Switzerland spiced with the best local ingredients. Moreover, Chef Nenad Mlinarevic from the FOCUS restaurant has been awarded the Gault Millau Swiss chef of the year 2016, a really excellent achievement.
