MIAMI (May 31, 2019) – Arlo Hotels, an independent four-star lifestyle hotel brand, today announced the appointment of Karan Kakar as the general manager of Nautilus by Arlo, the brand’s first expansion outside New York City. Kakar will be playing an integral role in re-imagining the historic South Beach hotel, bringing Miami’s global urban perspective to the beach.

Kakar is a multifaceted hotelier who comes to Nautilus by Arlo with over 15 years of experience in managing diverse hotels including luxury, mid-large convention hotels, and resorts. In his past roles, Kakar has specialized in leading hotel renovations and brand conversions. Most recently, Kakar led the $47 million renovation of the Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club, Autograph Collection, which is Hersha Hospitality Trust’s biggest asset and the largest renovation undertaken by the company to date. Shortly before that, he led a $20 million conversion of South Beach’s Mondrian from Morgans Hotel Group to Menin Hospitality.

Throughout his career, Kakar has worked side by side with some of the hospitality industry’s biggest leaders in South Florida and Puerto Rico, including HHM Hospitality, Marriott Autograph Collection, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Morgan’s Hotel Group and more. A consistent passion point for Kakar is personally connecting with guests and locals alike to create an organically social and welcoming hospitality experience.

“Karan comes to us with a wealth of experience that will be critical to the introduction of the Arlo brand and culture to the Miami market,” said Javier Egipciaco, senior vice president and managing director of Arlo Hotels. “In addition to an extensive knowledge of the South Beach hotel scene, he also has a charismatic energy that suits this hotel and our brand incredibly well.”
