The Murray Group, which uses its own financial resources to fund its hotel developments, is currently completing the construction of the Grand Beach Hotel in the Town of Surfside.
Once developed to our own specifications our properties are retained and run by the Group as independent hotels. The hotels appeal to families and independent travelers alike. We have worked with the local community to create a family orientated hotel with a refinement equal to the existing Grand Beach Hotel, in Miami Beach where luxury and comfort are available at competitive prices. We wish to create a similar hotel style in the Town of Surfside.
The Murray Group’s in-house development team, MB Development, takes on hands-on approach to all aspects of hotel development throughout the entire process. The team includes award winning designers, architects, construction managers, legal advisers and operations experts. Our ability to control all aspects of the development process and self-perform any aspect of the design or construction process enables us to deliver a quality hotel property. The same team recently opened the 431 room Grand Beach Hotel in Miami Beach.
