French hotel group Accor has made a foray into the Indian business city of Vijayawada with a new Novotel property, which will mark the 20th branded hotel under this name in the subcontinent. We find out more about this new venture.
Novotel has landed in the business hub of Vijayawada, the second largest city in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, located on the southeastern coast of the country.
In recent years, the city has developed into something of a commercial centre, and has been designated as a “Global City of the Future”, setting up for swathes of future development and investment.
The city’s popularity as a destination for conducting business has also been spurred on by the operation of direct flights between Singapore and Vijayawada, making it desirable for business travelers who are working and living in the Asia Pacific region.
Location, location, location
This, no doubt, was a motivator behind the opening of the Novotel Vijayawada Varun, which is located only 45 minutes away by car from the Vijayawada Airport. The hotel’s central location within the city will also appeal to guests traveling to the area on business.
Jean-Michel Cassé, Chief Operating Officer, India and South Asia, AccorHotels said, “Along with our strategic partner, The Varun Group, we are delighted to open our 20th Novotel in India. This hotel is AccorHotels’ 49th hotel in India and a great example of our fast-growing network in the country. Our vision is for the Novotel Vijayawada Varun to be a catalyst in the growth of Vijayawada, the business capital of the state with exemplary service.”
Seasonally inspired design
The design of the Novotel Vijayawada Varun is inspired by the year’s four seasons, and the guest rooms feature wall coverings depicting various scenes from India to inspire and delight visitors.
The hotel’s accommodation is spread across guest rooms, suites, studios and serviced apartments, so that every type of traveler has something that will appeal to them.
For fitness fanatics, there is no reason that you have to forgo your workout just because you are traveling. Indulge in a swim in the rooftop pool, or take a jog around the 200m running track, or hit the gym in the fitness centre and relax in the state of the art spa afterwards.
The hotel also has a banquet hall and numerous meeting rooms, making it ideal for business events and conferences.
