Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Signs Management Deal to Open its First European Mountain Resort
The hotel is set to open in 2021 and will be Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ seventh property in Switzerland.
MÖVENPICK HOTELS & Resorts, which is part of Accor, has signed an agreement with Panorama Development Corporation to manage the brand’s first European mountain resort, the Mövenpick Resort Savognin. The hotel is set to open in 2021 and will be Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ seventh property in Switzerland, featuring 110 rooms and suites, four dining outlets, a children’s area, wellness facilities, several retail outlets including a sports and fashion boutique and easy access to the adjacent ski area.
Located in Switzerland’s largest natural park, Park Ela, Savognin is a year-round destination, renowned for its family-friendly outdoor activities including skiing, tobogganing and ice-skating in winter as well as biking, hiking, swimming and mountaineering in summer. The destination is also popular for its festivals and children’s events.
Mövenpick Resort Savognin will be a modern yet family-oriented property spread across two connected wings. It features four dining venues: a specialty ‘Piste Terrace’ restaurant overlooking the slopes; an all-day dining outlet; the Mövenpick Coffee Wine Lounge, and a large living room-style lobby lounge.
“The partnership with Panorama Development Corporation is an important strategic step for Accor to further develop Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts as a premium brand and to enter the auspicious mountain resort segment. At the same time, it raises brand awareness in some of our target markets such as Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands,” said Duncan O’Rourke, COO Accor Central Europe.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts currently operates five hotels spanning 1,306 rooms in Switzerland. Its sixth property, Mövenpick Hotel Basel, is slated to open in 2020.
