At STORY Hospitality we believe that a parity offering is not enough. We aim to create hospitality experiences that embrace progress, inspiration, and that challenge the norm. We seek to add something meaningful to our guests’ travel experience so that their inspiration comes not just from the destination but also from their hotel stay.”
Currently, STORY Hospitality has 495 rooms, spread across five properties located in Dubai, Rabat, Podgorica and Seychelles. It intends to develop and manage new projects in key capital cities and touristic destinations and plans to operate four additional properties within the next 24 months.

STORY Hospitality is a leading hospitality management company committed to driving strong returns for owners and investors by harnessing the power of inspiration. “At both STORY Hotels & Resorts and CUE Hotels we value bold architecture, imaginative art, and vibrant cuisine as ways to bring guests ever closer to one another and to the riches of the world around them. Our operating beliefs are unique, we aim to inspire guests — to ignite new passions and to prompt new dreams, so we create transformative experiences. We want guests to be surprised by how they see, how they feel, and how they think after staying with us” added Capaccioli.
