Hotel Brand Development

The new Malana Hotels and Suites brand has been developed by HotelWorks with a focus on a love of design, an appreciation of excellence in the art of guest care, and with a deep respect for hotel brand creators who over the years have balanced creativity with lifestyle balanced construction. In addition, Malana partnered with renowned artists Jesse and Helen Kalisher to effect a design that refreshes, rejuvenates and engages hotel guests.

Sense of Serenity
“We’re excited at the opportunity to be at the forefront in launching a new hotel brand,” stated Jesse Kalisher, the creative leader at Kalisher. The North Carolina based art group believes in a uniquely creative collaborative process that engages the client at a nascent stage to deliver the right art for every project every time. “Working with Carver and Associates Lead Design Consultant Melanie Alonzo and HotelWorks, we’ve been fortunate to have been aligned with the creation of Malana, to have created artwork intended to bring a sense of serenity in the guest rooms,” added Kalisher.

Tranquility Once Nestled in the Rooms
Texas based HotelWorks has been developing a newly designed hotel concept for the past few years that will merge modern cool with traditional customer service. “Under research and development for the past few years, construction is in the final innings,” said Bob Zachariah, the visionary behind the creation of Malana. “We’re excited to have partnered with Kalisher to offer artwork in our guest rooms and public spaces that will both engage the guests and provide them with a feeling of tranquility once nestled inside our rooms.” Malana Hotels and Suites has a modern, clean design with a mix of exterior building materials and colors that in itself could be considered art.

Humanitarian Touch
“We’ve created the first Malana prototype out of pure love for creativity, art, and of looking at hotel design from a guest care perspective,” mentioned Zachariah, who added that, “great art comes from love and belongs in every part of the world no matter where it might have been created.” Zachariah further emphasized that one of the underlying reasons for associating Malana with Kalisher was not just due to the quality of work but also because of the humanitarian outreach projects that Jesse and Helen have rolled out including their annual Helen & Jesse Kalisher Humanitarian Award and their ongoing Helen’s Glasses efforts.

“Based on what we’ve seen, there are unexpected details throughout the hotel that overtime will be universally expected,” mentioned Kalisher, “and the fact that our art will provide solace to road warriors as part of this new effort is something that we’re proud of.” Malana Hotels and Suites is slated to open this summer.
