Cristiano Ronaldo Unveils one of his Four new Hotels in his Hometown
Cristiano Ronaldo is yet another example of the saying; nothing succeeds like success. The Real Madrid superstar is cashing in big time on his status as one of the best footballers on the planet, if not the best.
Ronaldo, 31, who recently captained Portugal to their first ever major triumph at Euro 2016, has expanded his burgeoning business portfolio by opening a new hotel in partnership with the Pestana Group.
The Real Madrid forward, alongside Dionisio Pestana, helped to open one of four new boutique hotels in his native Funchal, Madeira on Friday, Daily Mail writes.
The hotel, which is already up and running, has 49 rooms – 25 of which are referred to as ‘CR7 type rooms’, while there are 23 ‘Superior CR7’ rooms and one suite for those visiting to take advantage of.
During the opening, Ronaldo said: “The first Pestana CR7 had to be in Funchal – my city that also is considered the best island by the World Travel Awards.
‘It is a great pride for me – the opening of this my first hotel. It marks my entrance into a completely new area. This new project is going to be a huge success in the four corners of the world.”
The three-time Ballon d’Or winner plans to unveil further Pestana CR7 Lifestyle Hotels in Lisbon, Madrid and New York.
The total cost of building the four hotels is estimated at 75million euros.
Ronaldo recently added to his already glittering CV this summer by lifting the European Championship title with Portugal after helping Madrid to an 11th European crown, and it appears he is already planning for life after his career on the pitch comes to an end.
