Accor Signs Three Hotels in Uzbekistan

07 Jul 2022 - Accor has signed a cooperation agreement with Hyper Group of Companies for three new hotels in Uzbekistan.

The deal covers the opening of Mövenpick Samarkand and Swissôtel Tashkent following the rebranding and renovation of the existing hotels, as well as the construction of the Swissôtel Charvak hotel in Navobod Village, Tashkent.

“We are confident that the opening of new hotels under well-known international brands will be an additional factor in choosing Uzbekistan as the next travel destination,” said Alexis Delaroff, COO of Accor New East Europe. “These ancient cities are the pearls of the Great Silk Road, with beautiful architecture and traditions that cherish the memory of many centuries. Thousands of tourists come here every year, as well as business travellers due to the considerable growth of business activity.”

Mövenpick Samarkand (pictured) will open following the renovation and rebranding of the popular four-star Registan Plaza Hotel, located at 53 Shohrukh Street in Samarkand, close to the business districts and historical sites of the Old City.

The seven-storey Mövenpick Samarkand will offer 165 rooms, a spa centre with a swimming pool, a gastronomic restaurant, a large multifunctional space for corporate and social events, and a large lobby with a lounge bar.

Mövenpick Samarkand is scheduled to open later in 2022.

Swissôtel Tashkent will open following the renovation and rebranding of the luxurious five-star Miran International Hotel at 4 Shakhrisabz Street in Tashkent, located close to the Railway Museum, Amir Timur Square and The State Museum of the Temurids History.

Guests will be able to choose from 173 rooms and suites and enjoy various wellness and dining facilities.

The Swissôtel Tashkent is scheduled to open in Q3 2023.

Swissôtel Charvak will be built in the resort area of Navobod Village in the Tashkent region, close to the artificial Charvak Lake and its sandy beach, located at 575 metres above sea level.

Navobod is an unique year-round resort situated between the Chatkal and Ugam ridges of the Western Tien Shan, on the Chirchik River, only 80 km from Tashkent. Fresh and clear mountain air, sandy beaches and well-developed infrastructure attract many beach lovers to the area, including families with children.

Swissôtel Charvak will offer 206 rooms and suites, two restaurants, a bar, banquet hall, several meeting rooms, as well as a spa complex, a fitness centre and three pools.

The opening of Swissôtel Charvak is scheduled for 2024.

Camil Yazbeck, Senior Vice President Development, Accor Northern Europe, said, “Over the last five years, Accor has transformed its brand portfolio, moving from 16 brands to more than 40 with a concentration on high-value segments, including ultra-luxury, luxury, premium, and collection brands. This is where we see the growth today. Premium brands represent 22% of our overall pipeline in Northern Europe and dominate our development strategy.”
