What’s still to come?

Accor’s portfolio in Asia is expected to explode over the coming years. Here’s a taste of what’s to come:

Bangkok: Mercure & ibis Bangkok Siam Ratchathewi

Accor has signed a new dual-branded Mercure and ibis hotel in Bangkok, which is expected to open in 2025.

With Qantas now partnering with Bangkok airways, frequent flyers have even more options when using points to travel to Thailand.

We can expect to see Cambodia’s very first Mercure hotel open in 2027. Mercure Phnom Penh Beung Keng Kong 1 will make itself at home in the city’s vibrant Beung Kong neighbourhood, where restaurants, bars and shops await.

Indonesia: Novotel and Ibis Yogyakarta International Airport, Mövenpick Jakarta International Airport.

Accor’s move to sign three new airport hotels in Indonesia means travelling to and from one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations just got a whole lot easier.

The dual-branded Novotel and ibis Yogyakarta International Airport project is strategically located only a five minute drive from the airport and about 45 minutes from Yogyakarta city centre. Each property will be separated into two wings, each with a unique design style.
