October 20, 2017 9:41am
IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) one of the world’s leading global hotel companies, today announced, at the 2017 Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP), significant growth to its resort portfolio with the signing of four new properties, which includes the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants property in Southeast Asia.
The four new resorts are:
Rajit Sukumaran, Chief Development Officer, Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA), IHG commented: “It’s fantastic to be bringing new brands to new markets with new and existing partners as we continue to drive scale and brand preference as part of our global strategy. Resorts provide a halo effect to our brands, attract high value global travellers and enable our guests to explore new destinations.
With these four new resorts signings, we are excited to be expanding our resorts portfolio and delighted to bring the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in Southeast Asia to a great resort location.”
A luxury and lifestyle sanctuary in Nusa Dua
IHG, together with Ownco, will bring the first Kimpton to Southeast Asia. Kimpton Bali will feature 50 luxurious villas and sit on the picturesque Nusa Dua coast. The Kimpton brand is lauded for introducing the boutique hotel concept to the U.S. over 35 years ago and was acquired by IHG in 2015. Its individually designed hotels blend with the local culture to deliver guests a genuine, personalised experience that is both authentic and reflective of its location.
Gita Wirjawan, Chairman, Ownco said: “As a travel destination, Bali has experienced continued tourism growth from all over the world, with more than a 20 percent increase in visitors this year alone. Kimpton Bali, with its distinct style steeped in the local culture, will be the perfect addition to Bali’s hospitality landscape, offering guests an exceptional boutique experience, genuine service, superlative style and distinctive perks.”
Spectacular views of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, part of the eastern Himalayas
Further boosting IHG’s presence in Vietnam, the northern town of Sapa will welcome InterContinental Sapa Resort and Holiday Inn Resort Sapa in 2021 developed by Alphanam Investment Joint Stock Company. The luxurious InterContinental Sapa Resort will comprise 200 villas and rooms offering an immersive experience in the paddy fields, while the Holiday Inn Resort Sapa will feature 275 rooms ideal for the perfect relaxing family vacation. A key feature is a knowledge centre, shared by both resorts, where guests can learn about Sapa and its rich tribal culture.
First Hotel Indigo in Vietnam on the “pearl island”
Another new market entry for IHG is the first Hotel Indigo in one of Vietnam’s top resort destinations, Hotel Indigo Phu Quoc Starbay. Set to open in 2021 and developed with existing owners, MIK Group, the property is located along Dai Beach, in the exclusive Starbay precinct. The hotel will comprise a variety of rooms and suites, luxurious pools, a signature beachfront neighbourhood café-and-bar, and the artistic vibes that one would expect of a Hotel Indigo. With no two properties alike, Hotel Indigo caters to the rise in demand for those guests looking for the individuality and style of a boutique hotel with the security and consistency of one of the world’s largest hotel groups.
IHG currently has 42 resorts in operation across AMEA, which account for 15% of its total property portfolio, and 25 resorts in the development pipeline.
