Bicoastal travel and tourism public relations agency Diamond Public Relations (www.diamondpr.com) continues on a bright path forward with the addition of six new clients to the agency’s roster. A mix of boutique hotels and luxury brand resorts in Mexico, Latin America, and stateside, the dynamic properties are primed to benefit from strategic public relations tactics in tune with the trends defining a new era in travel.
“The health crisis last year brought unexpected changes to businesses of all kinds — notwithstanding the hospitality sector and the media who write about it under the pressures of a landscape that continues to evolve before our eyes,” said Jody Diamond, President of Diamond Public Relations. “Marketing travel in this day and age requires a strategic, think-on-your-feet, and graceful approach, and we are humbled that these new members of the Diamond PR family, along with our cherished and long-established clientele, trust in our agency team to guide them in this critical, highly competitive, and exciting period.”
Affectionately nicknamed ’The Tropical Grand Mansion,’ Quintessence is a nine-suite Relais & Chateaux hotel steps from Anguilla’s white-sand Long Bay Beach. The property features one of the world’s largest Haitian art collections procured by Hotel Owner Geoffrey Fieger and the Q Art Gallery where travelers can purchase authentic artworks by renowned Haitian artists such as Henri Robert Bresil, Albott Bonhomme, and Jasmin Joseph. This fall, the hotel is partnering with the nonprofit Le Centre d’Art in Port Au Prince to donate a portion of proceeds from bookings to aid local artists in the community. This winter, they’ll debut Quinn — a four suite addition to the main hotel that offers a more affordable stay option with access to the same resort amenities. www.qhotelanguilla.com
