Accor Brings Iconic Fairmont Brand to Ireland


Accor, the leading augmented hospitality group, had announced that it is bringing the Fairmont brand to Ireland with the signing of the historic Carton House. In partnership with the owner, Belmullet Hospitality Group, a USA based investor in luxury property, the hotel will now be managed by Fairmont.

Located just 20 minutes from Dublin in Maynooth, County Kildare, Carton House is one of Ireland's most historic country houses. The hotel is currently undergoing a multi-million euro refurbishment to bring the property up to the globally recognised Fairmont brand standards. The refurbishment is expected to be completed by the end of 2020 when the hotel will be rebranded as Fairmont Carton House.

The Carton estate dates back to 1176, then part of the Maynooth estate belonging to the FitzGerald family, one of the most influential families in Irish history. The house itself was built in 1739, making it the oldest Fairmont property in a global collection famed for its grand dame hotels.

Fairmont Carton House will be the first Fairmont branded hotel in Ireland and the fourth in the UK & Ireland, joining The Savoy in London, Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland and the recently announced Fairmont Windsor Park, which is also set to open by the end of 2020.

With more than 80 locations around the globe, Fairmont is known for its grand and awe-inspiring properties, many of which are steeped in history and are a focal point of their local regions. Fairmont Carton House will be a leading luxury golf and spa resort in Ireland, a complementary addition to Fairmont's Golf resort portfolio, particularly Fairmont St Andrews.

Introducing Mamaka by Ovolo

The expansion of contemporary hotel collection Ovolo Group is showing no signs of slowing down with the design-savvy company welcoming its first property in Indonesia. The first hotel outside of its Australian and Hong Kong offerings, the latest addition is Mamaka by Ovolo on the beachfront of Bali's bustling and rejuvenated Kuta.
Having purchased the Citadines Kuta Beach Bali late last year, Ovolo Group will transform the existing structure into an urban resort. The existing property will close early March and is expected to open late 2020 with 191 designer rooms and suites, innovative food and drink concepts, and unique experiences - the vibrant new addition to the burgeoning global brand has been designed in unison with ara design International and will play an integral role in the revitalisation of the Kuta precinct.

The project also marks a new design direction for the brand - Ovolo recently unveiled its new brand architecture alongside the Wonder. Full. branding, the By Ovolo Collective - each hotel unique, each one special, the more guests explore, the more they'll find. Mamaka Kuta Beach joins this distinctive collection of hotels which includes Nishi Apartments Canberra Australia, Mojo Nomad Aberdeen Harbour Hong Kong and soon to launch The Sheung Wan Central Hong Kong, expected in April 2020.
The playful aesthetic of the Ovolo Group will again be prominent throughout the new development, though this time with an Indonesian twist. Mamaka by Ovolo was envisioned by the Ovolo team and realised by ara design International, the brand behind many international hotel and resort projects.

Heavily inspired by its island home, Mamaka by Ovolo has merged the global brand ethos of Ovolo - that of vibrant, dynamic spaces - with ancient Balinese culture. In fact, that's exactly what the name refers to: In ancient Pali language 'mamaka' refers to one who shows affection not only for oneʼs self. In ode to Bali, the hotel's design has embraced vibrant colours and traditional Balinese textiles like kebaya baju, alongside natural materials, ample weaving, bold patterns, and lantern effect lighting. Karlyn Cerdeña is apt in her description of the new Kuta haunt; "Vibrant. Dynamic. Playful Bali. Be. Here. Now."

With a Hi-Res source, you'll get the full benefit of lossless audio that's recorded at a higher sample rate than CDs for a brilliantly lifelike performance.

Swiping on the right earcup controls the volume and basic voice assistant functions, while a single tap activates or deactivates active noise cancelling, or lets you instantly engage Awareness Mode to hear more of the world around you as your music continues to play.

Quick charge delivers six hours of playback from just 15 minutes of charging. The headphones can even be used without battery power, via the included audio cable, which also helps connect to airline inflight entertainment systems.
