Unlocking the luxury market. Positioning your business for success

Hannes Illmer

Co-Owner of the Private Retreat Villa Eden, Merano, Italy

Hannes, starting from an Alps guesthouse background, pursued his education at Cornell University and later worked with international hotel brands, becoming a prominent figure in Northern Italy’s hotel industry. After founding his consulting firm, he married Angelika, owner of the magnificent Villa Eden. Together, they transformed the former 4-star Kurhotel into a premier medical wellness destination. Now a 5-star luxury retreat and member of Leading Hotels of the World, Villa Eden is a haven of serenity and holistic well-being. With just 25 suites and a staff of over 80 professionals dedicated to preventive medicine, the villa attracts discerning guests worldwide. Hannes will share insights into this transformation and the evolving requests of luxury travellers seeking to enhance their quality of life.
