It takes extraordinary vision to go against the norm, break the circle and bring about a paradigm shift. World-class hospitality companies are typically found in the heart of bustling cities around the world.
But Victor Chiagozem Aruwah, a retired US Army officer born to Nigerian parents, shifts gears, changing the narrative.
Victor Aruwah decided to go into the hotel business after serving meritoriously in the US Army for 15 years. He left the service in 2012 at just 33 years old.
The veteran immersed himself in the life of service during his time in the military. Aruwah, who just turned 43, joined the Facilities Management Command Unit of the United States Department of Public Works, Engineering Division based in Germany after leaving the service.
The fitness fanatic, was a boxer in the military, and crowned US Forces Europe Boxing Champion in 2004, as well as 8th US Army Heavyweight Boxing Champion in 2008 in South Korea.
Victor Aruwah is currently CEO of a hotel he founded; a 32-room bouquet hotel, the Kurvilla Hotel in Nanstein Landstuhlhotel, Germany, which offers first-class services to guests in the ancient city.
This exquisitely beautiful hotel is located beneath the medieval castle in the heart of Nanstein Landstuhl, Germany’s most stunning ancient city.
Easily accessible from anywhere in the city, whether on foot from the bustling shopping center or the train station, the beautiful edifice houses luxury and comfort for any traveler wishing to experience German hospitality in a serene and peaceful environment. Built in 1896, it is under monument protection.
Hotel Kurvilla is an accessible base for day trips. It is close to the exit of the A6 and A62 motorways. The local Landstuhl S-Bahn (city rail) station takes you to Kaiserslautern and allows you to explore Rhineland-Palatinate by public transport.
Hotel guests can park for free directly at the Kurvilla Hotel apartment.
Landstuhl is a well-known seaside resort with a total population of over 8000 people, 18 km from Kaiserslautern and close to the US military base.
Victor Aruwah has been the general manager of the hotel for five years.
“I managed this project for nearly five years and it was a wonderful experience with no service outages or lowering of our standards,” added Victor Aruwah.
