Grupo Marta’s development unit is closely related to the company’s hotel and restaurant developments and their surrounding areas. After the opening of the Motel Bemo in 1960, the company’s executives quickly realized the value of developing the surrounding areas of their hospitality ventures. Thus, starting with the Best Western Irazú in 1970, Grupo Marta Hospitality’s development strategy has gone beyond stand-alone hotels and restaurants, to include other residential, mixed-use, and commercial real estate.
