AccorHotels has announced the opening of Varun Beach Bheemili Resort, located 25 kilometres North-East of Visakhapatnam, in Andhra Pradesh, India.
The resort features 28 rooms overlooking the Bay of Bengal, within walking distance to Bheemili beach. Formerly a Dutch settlement, Bheemili’s history is characterised by traces of Buddhism.
Visakhapatnam’s airport and railway station are 42 kilometres and 33 kilometres away respectively. The resort features a selection of dining outlets: The Square, an all-day dining restaurant, Infinity, an outdoor poolside diner, Water Bar for sundowner cocktails and Teppanyaki for barbecues. Leisure facilities include a rooftop infinity pool, plus five acres of outdoor space.
Jean-Michel Cassé, senior vice president, operations, AccorHotels India said: “India is a priority market for us and one in which we are seeing solid growth momentum. By the end of this year, we expect to have a strong presence with a network of 45 hotels in the country.
“The state of Andhra Pradesh is integral to our development strategy and we are committed to opening more world class hotels here. The Varun Beach Bheemili Resort is our second hotel alongside the 225-room Novotel Visakhapatnam and we have plans to open another Novotel with a convention centre in Vijayawada sometime later.”
Madhav Bellamkonda, general manager, Varun Beach Bheemili Resort, added: “Varun Beach Bheemili Resort infuses local architectural elements with the warmth of Novotel hospitality, elegance and simplicity focused on the needs of the leisure or business traveller.
“Our large sea-facing rooms with balconies are the closest to a cruise experience on land made even more real with the rising Sun over the East coast, making it a memorable stay for our guests. We look forward to welcoming guests to this pristine property.”
