ACCOR Announces Two New Raffles for Asia as Brand Continues Strategic Expansion
Since acquiring the legendary Raffles brand in 2016, Accor has announced plans to almost double the iconic collection, with recent openings including Raffles Maldives Meradhoo and Raffles Shenzhen, as well as upcoming projects including Raffles Udaipur and Raffles Jaipur. Today, the Group adds a further two landmark projects to the pipeline with Raffles Bali set to open in 2020 and Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore planned for 2022.
With at least four hotels in the development pipeline, the Group will grow the brand by at least 50% in Asia, while planning further flagships 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.
Proudly born in Singapore, Raffles has become an iconic collection of 14 timeless properties worldwide, which should reach 20 hotels by 2025. Each Raffles hotel is a special experience: warm and welcoming, generous in spirit and unique to its destination.
