The Liz McGrath Collection is proud to announce the welcome addition of Martina Barth to its staff portfolio, in her new role as Sales Manager responsible for Inbound Leisure. Barth joined the 5-star luxury hotel in Constantia, Cape Town in mid-January 2019 after a decade as Sales Manager at The Vineyard Hotel in Newlands, Cape Town.
Barth has been active in the hospitality industry for over two decades, having started her career as Assistant F&B Manager at the V&A Hotel. Speaking of her previous work experience, she says: “I have had the great fortune to work with leading hospitality brands such as Arabella-Sheraton (now The Westin) as PR & Promotions Manager, and Peermont, as their Cape Town sales arm.”
In her new role at The Liz McGrath Collection, Barth’s key responsibilities are to maintain the already strong partnerships with the hotel’s STO accounts and Industry Stakeholders – the hotel is extremely well established in the global and local marketplace. She is also on board to forge new relationships with emerging markets.
Barth is sure to excel in this capacity due to her substantial industry network, built up over many years. She is a passionate and committed member of the hospitality and tourism industry. In 2018 she was elected to the Western Cape Board of the Southern Africa Tourism Services Association (SATSA) and is proud to hold the role of Africa liaison for The International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA).
The Liz McGrath Collection looks forward to enhancing and leveraging her experience and relationships in order to stay relevant in the fast-changing landscape of the tourism Industry.
About The Liz McGrath Collection
A warm welcome to The Liz McGrath Collection, comprising The Cellars-Hohenort, The Marine, and The Plettenberg – three iconic hotels that exemplify South African hospitality. Each of these 5-star hotels boasts a unique location, mesmerising history, splendid design, and amenities and services that are second to none.
What they share is the inimitable style of their creator, the late Liz McGrath. A self-taught, natural hotelier, the amazing ‘Mrs M’, as her staff fondly liked to call her, built her collection based on her great passions – décor, food and gardening.
The result are three magnificent properties in exceptional locations that all create ‘a world away from the ordinary’: Relais & Châteaux member The Cellars-Hohenort in Cape Town’s leafy Constantia Valley, which is home to one of South Africa’s top restaurants, Greenhouse; The Marine in Hermanus, one of South Africa’s most spectacular seaside hotels; and The Plettenberg in Plettenberg Bay, the ultimate Garden Route destination.
