Accor to open 30 hotels in India within 5 years

3 Apr 2024

Luxury hotel brands like Fairmont, Sofitel, and Raffles planned. Accor may consider launching luxury brands like Orient Express, too.

European hospitality chain, Accor plans to launch 30 more luxury hotels in India within three to five years, and one hotel every week in Asia this year. In India, it currently operates 62 hotels under 9 brand names from its portfolio of 40 brands worldwide. It will open Raffles in Jaipur this year. The other cities on its radar are New Delhi, Mohali, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Bhubaneswar among others.

Novotel, Ibis, and Pullman make up 70% of its entire business. It develops Ibis hotels in India in partnership with InterGlobe Aviation, the owner of IndiGo Airlines. IndiGo's aircraft order last year fueled its plans for expansion in India.

Accor launched its luxury and lifestyle division a year and a half ago, offering 24 brands like Delano, Mama Shelter, Mondrian, 25hours, and MGallery. It already offers hotels, trains, and yatchs under Orient Express and is considering launching it in India.
