Denver-based luxury retreat company Collective Retreats is positioning itself for significant expansion. The firm has partnered with investment banking firm RobertDouglas to aid in funding acquisition and development opportunities and achieve its growth objectives. Growing demand for experience has helped to launch the company’s recent growth initiative.

“Our mission is to revolutionize global travel through a collection of dynamic destination retreats and enriching experiences, connecting person, community  and environment,” Peter Mack, CEO of Collective Retreats, tells “People are becoming so hyper-connected through the digital world and devices and so over-scheduled and programmed that they’re missing out on true human connection and self-actualization.  We feel our mission and our experiences are more important now, for the world, than ever before. Collective Retreats has been experiencing such strong demand that we feel we owe it to our loyal guests to give them more opportunities to experience Collective.”

Demand isn’t only coming from clients—although the user demand is booming—but institutional capital sources as well. “There are so many beautiful, special places on our development roadmap and in our pipeline that we’d like to unlock the power of these places by expanding Collective Retreats,” says Mack. “At the same time, our retreats deliver very strong investor returns, providing an opportunity to attract third-party real estate capital to accelerate our growth plan. The interest is strong. In the last nine months, institutional capital interest in the outdoor hospitality space has gone from “0” to “60” with major commitments from industry luminaries, KSL, Starwood Capital and Whitman Peterson among others.”
