Redefining Hotel Management

ABOUT US 

NOKY is an independent full-service hospitality management company that provides tailor-made hotel management, sales structure, operational infrastructure, maximizes the financial results and improves the image of hotels.

Founded in Italy in 2015 by hospitality Group, we deploy a passionate and white-glove approach to positively impacting and financially optimizing the independent, boutique hotels that we manage.

NOKY { pronounced No-Key } has a symbolic meaning to the company founders: “NOK” being the abbreviated name of the first-ever hotel based in the world, Nisiyama, an Onsen in Keiunkan, Japan that has been managed by the same family for more than 46 generations.

Our appreciation of family-owned businesses creates a comfortable and close working relationship with hotel owners, relieving any worry about the “keys” to their property. We as managers take care of all aspects of the hotel experience and operation from A-Z.

HOW WE WORK

NOKY consists of hospitality experts and skilled managers specializing in key departments related to hotels, including Operations, Finance, Revenue & Sales, Human Resources, Food & Beverage, Marketing & Social Media, Renovation and Maintenance. Our team has more than a decade of combined experience in managing and creating successful financial models for boutique and independent hotels in Italy. After an initial meeting, we will custom-make a detailed plan and infrastructure that suits the needs and interests of each property owner. Our goal is to identify issues and solve them with innovative ideas and tools to achieve goals and minimize workload. Onward, we build a timetabled action plan that works in stages, each decision is approved by hotel owners and followed up with quantifiable monthly reports that analyze the improvement and success rate of the NOKY Management Strategy.
