Frequently Asked Questions

Worldwide, lifestyle activities have become part of our culture and are expected as an amenity offering at places where people live and recreate. In order to attract and retain residents and/or members, amenities that include lifestyle activities are an essential part of the offering for both adults and children. Especially in residential communities providing youth programmings such as camps, instruction and all forms of recreation are a magnet for parents to involve their children in the community.

Alova Hospitality offers a wide array of recreational, social, instructional and educational activities and programs for adults and kids. The program menu created by our firm and service offerings are customized for each property in order to generate the highest level of participation and enjoyment. In addition, we develop for our clients an effective marketing and promotion plan which has been highly successful in stimulating resident or club member use.

Lifestyle programs are primarily recommended for exclusive use by members, residents, and guests within each residential or club development. However, in certain instances, our clients wish to allow external access from the local surroundings in order to increase participation or profitability.

Costs vary depending on the scope of work, size, and complexity of the recreational or lifestyle facility/clubhouse. Another determinant is the depth of programming desired and diversity of services to be provided. Operating costs for lifestyle facilities are typically developed by Alova Hospitality in the opening phase through a financial pro forma and operating budget.

We do! Alova Hospitality is involved with the design, opening, and management of numerous multi- use athletic and community-based recreation and lifestyle facilities. In addition to our experience with family and multi-generational residential developments, we provide these services for many age-restricted or “active adult” communities.

No, not in every case. Alova Hospitality oversees community clubhouses and residential lifestyle amenities that span a wide range of staffing and service levels. In some cases, providing a very limited staffing structure is the correct business model and is cost effective. This may mean providing only a single part-time or full-time Lifestyle/Activities Director. In other cases, Alova Hospitality operates larger, sophisticated residential clubhouses which require an entire full-time staff.

Often, these types of developments contain a diverse array of leisure and lifestyle amenities and facilities. These can include a sophisticated fitness or wellness center, a small or full-service spa, indoor and/or outdoor swimming pools, indoor and/or outdoor racquet sports facilities, Kid’s Club areas, conference rooms and social spaces, lounges and locker rooms, retail spaces and many other features. Alova Hospitality has an extensive track record in designing, opening, staffing and managing these amenities.
