Robert Kmita has been appointed managing director of SO/Sotogrande Resort & Spa, a development between Marbella and Gibraltar which is scheduled to open in 2021.
Originally from Denmark, Kmita will oversee management of the luxury and lifestyle hotel in accordance with the high standards of the SO/ brand – one of the most avant-garde in Accor’s high-end portfolio. Kmita will be reporting to Xavier Rugeroni, Accor regional vice president for Spain, Monaco, Italy and Portugal. “His attention to detail, his sophistication and his experience in the luxury sector, together with his energy, will be key to making the hotel a trend-setting centrepiece of Sotogrande and capturing the rebellious luxury of SO/, bringing exclusivity to the next level,” said Marc Dardenne, director of operations for Accor’s luxury brands in Europe. Comprising 152 rooms, SO/Sotogrande Resort & Spa will be the brand’s first hotel in Spain, offering “a fascinating combination of social areas, exclusive experiences and distinctive ‘Just Say SO’ services to celebrate the Mediterranean culture”.
