FRHI Hotels and Resorts outlines seven new developments for 2014
POSTED 28 Jan 2014 . BY Chris Dodd
FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI) is to continue expanding its global footprint following a number of high profile openings this year, with the company expected to open seven new properties across its three hotel brands in 2014.

FRHI, the parent company of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Swissotel Hotels & Resorts, will open properties in varying corners of the world as it looks to commit to a 50 per cent growth plan over the next five years.

The most recent opening will see Swissotel open two properties, Sochi Krasnaya Polyana and Sochi Kamelia, in time for the Winter Olympics.

Krasnaya Polyana is located around 60km from the centre of Sochi city and will feature 166 guestrooms and suites, including six Mountain View Penthouse Suites.

Meanwhile, Sochi Kamelia is a beach resort modelled on the aesthetics of a historical building overlooking the Black Sea. The resort will feature 203 deluxe, contemporary guestrooms and suites, alongside two restaurants for guests.

The company is also looking to further expand in the European country of Turkey, with two developments planned in Bodrum and Istanbul. The first property, Swisstel Bodrum Beach, is situated on the waterfront of Turgutreis. The two-story hotel is set to feature 66 guestrooms and suites, which will be accompanied by 72 private residences.

FRHI’s second property in the country will be the Raffles Istanbul. The hotel is to be a main feature of the Zorlu Center – Turkey’s first and only mixed-use development project. As well as 130 guestrooms and 51 suites, guests will be able to enjoy a 32,292 sq ft (3,000sq m) Raffles Spa.

In Saudi Arabia, Fairmont Riyadh, Business Gate will provide a luxury hotel within a mixed-use development, with accompanying properties including a convention centre and residential properties for sale. The hotel will include Fairmont’s Fairmont Gold offering, as well as spa and fitness facilities.

Further eastward towards the Gulf of Oman, the UAE will see the opening of a Fairmont Ajman featuring 252 guestrooms and suites situated along the famed Corniche.

The company’s final major opening is to be a Raffles in the central business district of Jakarta, Indonesia, inside in the luxurious Ciputra World Jakarta development. The hotel is to feature 180 guestrooms and suites, as well as a 11,840 sq ft (1,100sq m) Raffles Spa, meeting space and other entertainment and functional facilities.

The expansion comes as the business looks to progress on a deal secured to launch its first Fairmont property in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which is expected to be completed by 2017.

The business also has plans to continue its world-wide expansion, with more developments likely in India, Russia, Indonesia and China, as well as in the European and African markets.
