CHC Hospitality Training
At Casa Hotel Celaque, we are more.
We are more than a first-class environment for you to relax and enjoy the natural tranquil beauty in the shadow of Celaque National Park. We are more than organic, natural, and local food cooked-to-perfection. More than desserts and fresh juices that rejuvenate you at any time of the day. We are more than beautiful gardens, trees, and flora. We are more than a retreat that will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated.
Casa Hotel Celaque is a hotel school where the kitchen, guest rooms, and restaurant become the classrooms for the Abundant Life Christian School students enrolled in our hospitality program. These students, many of whom are scholarship students, participate in an accredited program from the American Hotel & Lodging Association that will result in obtaining a CHTMP designation that is recognized globally in leading chains such as Marriott, Hilton, and Hyatt as well as independent groups such as Modus Hotels. In addition to nearly 200 classroom hours focusing on hospitality operations, sales, marketing, and leadership the students are also required to perform 100 practical hours.
During your stay, you may see some of our students assisting in the restaurant and hotel – cooking in the kitchen, serving in the restaurant, preparing our guestrooms, and taking reservations. Proceeds from your visit will go the scholarship fund that allows underprivileged students to receive a bi-lingual education.
