MONTREAL — Tech-enabled hotel operator Life House has signed a long-term agreement to manage Beldi, a 48-key new-build in Squamish, B.C., marking the first Canadian property in its portfolio of nearly 60 hotels across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Rodney Wilson of Hang Eleven Properties is developing the hotel while HunterOffice Architecture and Ste. Marie Studio will be leading design and branding. The boutique hotel will have a ground-floor restaurant and rooftop lounge that will serve as both a co-working space by day and cocktail bar by night. Life House will oversee all hotel and food and beverage operations with its in-house built software.

“Beldi will be the first high-end, lifestyle property in Squamish, and we are honoured to be a part of the area’s transformation, offering a new hub for modern travellers looking for adventure but also convenience,” says Wilson. “We can’t think of a better partner than Life House whose tech-enabled platform brings value to the hotel while creating a more seamless experience for the guest.”

“We are excited to cement our position in Canada, both in the expansion of our hotel portfolio and continued commitment to hiring great diverse talent from Montreal to Vancouver,” says Rami Zeidan, founder and CEO of Life House. “With a majority of our team in Canada already, it’s a natural progression for us to begin supporting hotel owners throughout Canada’s fragmented hotel market following our proven track record in the U.S. and Mexico.”

This partnership between Hang Eleven and Life House is expected to expand with new projects in B.C., including Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Sooke and Tofino. By the end of 2022, Life House plans to have five hotels open or under development.
