The luxurious COMO Hotels & Resorts made their Canadian debut late January 2010 at an elegant cocktail reception arranged by LMA Communications Inc. Media, travel agents, tour operators and tourist boards mingled with COMO executives over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the candle lit Gardiner Museum, set against the back drop of white orchid displays and spectacular imagery of all COMO Hotels & Resorts. Key COMO executives were in Toronto for the event from London, Singapore, New York and Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos.
With eight unique properties around the world, COMO has two boutique hotels in London, the Halkin and the Metropolitan; island resort getaways, Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos and Cocoa Island in the Maldives; health retreat COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali; two inland cultural retreats Uma Paro, Bhutan and Uma Ubud, Bali; as well as the Metropolitan Hotel in Bangkok.
As an outcome of this event, for many members of the Travel Media Association of Canada who are visiting London this month, LMA was able to facilitate passes to the Met Bar, the famous members only bar at the Metropolitan Hotel. As well, a number of media will be attending Afternoon De-Light, the hotel’s waist-friendly version of afternoon tea. We certainly look forward to hearing about their experiences at COMO’s chic London property upon returning to Canada!
