Two Asia properties in the works for Raffles Hotels
Raffles Hotels has announced plans to open two properties in Asia.
Raffles Bali and Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore will join the collection in 2020 and 2022 respectively.
It’s the latest development in an extensive expansion plan laid out by parent company Accor, which also includes the recent openings of Maldives Meradhoo and Raffles Shenzhen, as well as upcoming projects Raffles Udaipur and Raffles Jaipur.
With at least four hotels in the development pipeline, the group will grow its presence by 50% in Asia and bring its total collection to 17.
Accor said further flagships are planned for Europe, the US and Middle East, including Raffles London in the former War Office, Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences and Raffles Palm360 Resort Hotel & Residences.
“The Raffles brand is the highest expression of luxury hospitality within the Accor portfolio and we are proud to be growing the brand through curated additions that will allow the most discerning guests to find their perfect oasis in the world’s best locations,” said Michael Issenberg, chairman and chief executive of Accor Asia Pacific.
“Accor is now the second largest operator of luxury hotels in the world, with over 600 luxury and premium hotels and resorts globally. We have found strong demand amongst owners and developers for the Raffles brand because it is truly one of the most illustrious hospitality brands in the world, renowned for offering guests unparalleled levels of discreet service in exceptional buildings that quickly become the epicentre of their destinations.”
Raffles Bali is located in Jimbaran Bay comprising 32 villas with private pools.
Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore will be the brand’s second hotel in the region and comes 135 years after the opening of its iconic Beach Road property.
The new hotel will be an all-villa property set among 100,000 square metres on Sentosa Island.
