Independent hotel collection Global Hotel Alliance has a new brand under its umbrella. As Nikki Beach celebrates its 20th year in business, Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts reportedly will be joining GHA's growing portfolio of more than 30 independent brands and 550 hotels in 75 countries. Nikki's hotels also will be able to leverage GHA's multi-brand loyalty program, Discovery. 

GHA CEO Christopher Hartley said he was "thrilled" to add some beach club ambiance to the alliance’s portfolio. "Showcasing unique brands to a global audience is what we’re all about, and Nikki Beach enriches that proposition and will prove a popular addition to our portfolio," he said.

Alexander Schneider, president of the Global NBHR division, added the alliance platform is just what the brand needs as it embarks upon its growth plans. "Nikki Beach is evolving from a pure beach-club brand to provide luxury lifestyle hospitality concepts as well, and so we need to reach beyond our local audience to global leisure travelers," said Schneider."GHA gives us instant access to 15 million such customers and we’re excited to become part of this growing alliance as we plot our growth strategy."
