Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts moves forward with its expansion plans to open 11 new properties in nine countries by the end of 2018.
Out of the nine countries, the global hospitality firm will make its debut in five – Bangladesh, Iraq, Kenya, Malaysia and the Maldives. The remaining properties will be located in the UAE, Egypt, Tunisia and Thailand.
In Asia-Pacific, Mövenpick’s upcoming hotels this year include Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin – the brand’s seventh property in Thailand; the 105-unit Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru in the Maldives, Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA in Malaysia, and Mövenpick Hotel Sylhet in Bangladesh. The company will also bolster its cluster strategy in Thailand with the opening of Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai.
“In 2018, our global expansion drive really steps up a gear, with the 11 new openings planned, putting us firmly on track to meet our target of 125 properties by 2020 and introducing the Mövenpick brand in some very desirable locations,” confirmed Olivier Chavy, president & CEO, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
