Excellent cooperation! Prima Furniture equipped Bluesun 5-star hotels

first_imgPrima Grupa, the largest Croatian furniture manufacturer, has equipped two Bluesun hotels with its highest quality furniture – SENDTIDO Bluesun Berulia in Brela with 4 stars and the TUI BLUE Jadran hotel in Tučepi with 5 stars. According to the wishes and needs of the client, more than 700 top-quality bearings have been produced in Prima’s plants. Thus, these two hotels of the highest category, by choosing smart solutions, provided their guests with superior sleeping comfort.Certainly a big compliment to the Blue Sun Group who recognized and became aware of the importance of encouraging local production. Let’s not be fooled and be sure that BlueSun, like everyone else in the premium segment, had high standards and expectations in accordance with the 5-star categorization, which were obviously successfully met. So, it is possible, in fact, that the quality as well as the design of our products certainly do not give up by the competition. Regardless of the “local patriotism” of the Sunce owner, he certainly saw the ratio of quality, performance and price because in the end it is a business process that must meet high standards in order to continue to achieve high accommodation prices.Due to their durability and longevity, mattresses produced in Prima are a quality and long-term choice for furnishing hotels and apartments. Primini box bed systems are created for top comfort, and in combination with durable mattresses they guarantee comfort, quality sleep and body regeneration, which is extremely important for guests when talking about health tourism and accommodation of higher categories. With these features, as well as the affordable price, they were guided in Bluesun hotels and stand out from Prima Gurpa. “The hotel decoration project requires a careful selection of furniture made of top quality materials, durable and long-lasting, and yet functional and visually attractive. Increasingly demanding guests expect a complete experience and want to feel relaxed and comfortable, like in their own home. That is why we are extremely proud that Prima furniture is recognized as an ideal solution to meet the needs of Bluesun hotel guests. “, Pointed out Renato Radić, director of Prima Group.Source: SENDTIDO Bluesun BrelaBy the way, Prima Group is the largest manufacturer and retail chain of furniture in Croatia and the region. It has 8 own production plants and an extensive retail network of as many as 63 showrooms, of which 55 in Croatia and 8 in Macedonia. It employs more than 1500 staff. Prima’s furniture has been recognized for its quality by customers in the demanding Western European market, so today Prima’s products enrich homes in Germany, Great Britain, Switzerland, France, Austria, Italy and other countries. “Although we are recognized on the market as manufacturers of furniture, I also produce mattresses and we are proud that we have set high standards and that this is a Croatian product and production. It is extremely important to us that we cooperated with the travel company Blue Sun, ie on the arrangement of two of their hotels, since we did some finishing touches according to their requirements in accordance with the high categorization, which we successfully fulfilled to the mutual satisfaction. We are actively present in the tourist segment and we have a wide offer for hotels, apartments, villas and houses, ie the entire tourist program. ”Point out from Prima Group.Buy and use Croatian products, from agriculture to furniture, because the quality and design do not lag behind foreign furniture, in fact, they offer a better ratio of quality and price. But most importantly, by buying Croatian products you encourage the development of the local economy, and thus the retention of the local population in Croatia. The greatest power of tourism is precisely that it is not one industry, but connects various industries vertically and horizontally, and it is imperative for the tourism sector to maximally encourage and use local resources. Precisely for the reason that tourism spending is dispersed to as many local industries and participants as possible so that everyone can make a living from tourism, not just one because it is not self-sustaining.Unfortunately, our tourism closes figuratively in one “resort”, we encourage imports and foreign products, and yet we do not appreciate our quality, production, products and people. Which is insane and counterproductive, and ultimately not economically viable. That is why young people emigrate even from cities that live directly from tourism on the Adriatic, because simply three months of tourism as well as less involvement of the local population (except as cheap labor, and interestingly we are talking about tourism which is a highly profitable sector) enough to survive the whole year as well as for a quality standard of living.So make the most of local resources, from furniture, agriculture, souvenirs as well as the whole range of products and services involved in the tourism industry. Due to the “couple of kuna” difference in price, because foreign products have a lower price due to the large amount of production, you encourage foreign companies and foreign markets, while domestic ones are failing. Of course, I am not against foreign companies or foreign products as well as healthy competition, but we should certainly encourage and take care of domestic production, as do all other countries that care about their economies, from Germany, Austria to Slovenia.Source: TUI BLUE Jadran, TucepiAnd there is a big difference between domestic and foreign owners of the hotel industry. Of course, I emphasize again that I am not against foreign investments or anything like that, in fact, but foreign hotel chains are managed through excel spreadsheets, which do not know the emotions, long-term, the importance of the local economy. To trivialize, one kuna invested in the satisfaction of the guest, tomorrow brings five if the guest comes back again and recommends your accommodation to their loved ones. Kuna may keep someone in Bjelovar or Slavonia more tomorrow, so he doesn’t go to Ireland or Germany to look for his place under the sun. And accordingly, maybe then there would not be so many problems with the workforce, which will only show in the coming years, because the family would stay in Croatia. Interesting how the circle turns and how everything is connected, right? The whole system is unsustainable if local resources are not used and if tourist spending is not dispersed to as many local entrepreneurs as possible.I am free to draw a parallel as we close in on one resort.We have examples of how tourism has developed in Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Spain and it is quite clear that closing in one resort is unsustainable, while on the other hand we must look to Bavaria, Austria, Slovenia and Switzerland who make maximum use of local resources and live in In the first sense, tourism, in fact, live it all year round. Domestic production and products are high quality and competitive, they may not be as branded as foreign ones, but they are certainly on the same or even higher level in terms of quality. The combination of blue and green Croatia is possible, as well as the placement of Croatian products through the tourism sector. Indeed, for all the above reasons, it should be imperative.An excellent example is the Jadranka Group from Mali Lošinj, which cooperates with over 60 domestic family farms throughout Croatia – from the islands of Cres and Lošinj, Istria and Kvarner, Međimurje, Slavonia and Baranja. “For us, this form of cooperation is important because, in addition to providing our guests with quality and home-made food, on the other hand we help the local economy. Due to the recognizable connection of green and blue Croatia within its entire offer, the Jadranka Group is today the largest purchaser of products of domestic family farms. ” Goran Filipović, a member of the Management Board of Jadranka Group, points out. A statement in which everything is said and the whole paradigm of the union of blue and green Croatia. Yes it is possible, and Jadranka Grupa is, at least as far as I know, the only real example that rounded off the whole story and connected blue and green CroatiaStart from yourself and encourage the local economy, because maybe your son or daughter will have to move outside Croatia tomorrow because there will not be enough work and business activities in your city. It’s interesting how that circle turns and how everything is connected, right?Unfortunately after a couple of attempts I was not able to get a statement from the BlueSun Hotel either, but they certainly deserve praise for this great collaboration and for boosting the local economy. You buy domestic and Croatian products. It’s all up to the people, start from yourself and don’t forget it’s all up to you.PS This is not a paid PR article, but a positive example of excellent cooperation and synergy of tourism with domestic production and products #kupujmohrvatskolast_img read more
