The Hiatus Clearwater Beach, Curio Collection by Hilton is now open in Florida. 3H Group Inc., led by Hiren Desai as president and CEO, is the owner of
the property, while hotel management firm LBA Hospitality will manage the operations of the beachside hotel.

The 88-room boutique-style hotel is the first Curio property to join the LBA portfolio and expands the partnership between LBA Hospitality and owner/developer
3H Group, the companies said in a joint statement.

“In January 2022, when LBA took over management of the 3H portfolio of hotels, I thought I would take a little break,” said Desai. “I told my family and colleagues
I was going to take a little hiatus, and they had different ideas in store for me. My brother, Nick Desai—also a co-owner of 3H Group—said, ‘You can take a hiatus,
but take it in Clearwater Beach.’”

New York City-based Celano Design Studio Co. designed The Hiatus’ interior, the statement added. Guestrooms and suites feature balconies with Clearwater Beach views,
while the seventh-floor rooftop restaurant and reception area offer Gulf and beach vistas.
