In this week’s edition of hot hotel openings, we’ve got AccorHotels, Velas Resorts, Ruby Hotels, Deutsche Hospitality and Hilton.
Novotel Vijayawada Varun
AccorHotels officially opened the 227-room Novotel Vijayawada Varun — the first international hotel to open in Andhra Pradesh’s commercial centre and the 20th Novotel to open in India. The opening of Novotel Vijayawada affirms the growing popularity of AccorHotels in India, with a growth trajectory spanning just over a decade since its first opening.
Strategically located in the heart of the city, Novotel Vijayawada Varun is only a 45-minute ride from the Vijayawada International Airport and a 20-minute ride from the Vijayawada railway station Vijayawada.
Mar del Cabo
Mar del Cabo, operated by Velas Resorts, is midway between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. All of its 46 suites and penthouses feature one or two bedrooms with a king or two queen size beds; kitchenette with coffee maker and microwave oven; terrace with sitting area; separate living area with sofa; bathroom step-in rain shower, and daily turndown service. Culinary offerings include cuisine inspired by local Baja dishes and coastal Mediterranean favourites.
Ruby Hotels’ sixth property, Ruby Lotti, is now open in Hamburg’s central Stadthausbrücke district. With a total of 290 rooms — it’s the largest property yet for the Munich-based brand.
Set within a former publishing house, Ruby Lotti provides a water-front location just steps from the neighbourhood’s nightlife, culinary hotspots, shops and transport links. An expansive indoor and outdoor terrace bar offers a watering hole, while an on- site co-working area and library provides ample space for more focused thinking.
The IntercityHotel Riyadh Malaz
Deutsche Hospitality continues to expand worldwide and has started welcoming guests in Saudi Arabia. The IntercityHotel Riyadh Malaz, located in the Kingdom’s capital city, expanded the brand’s portfolio which currently includes ten countries.
The IntercityHotel Riyadh Malaz is a new build with 82 rooms and four suites as well as boasting a lounge and a café. The main restaurant is situated on the roof with views out over the old quarter of Riyadh. The hotel’s location in the well-known commercial quarter of Al Malaz makes it a destination for both locals and travellers alike.
