Accor Signs Three Sebel Hotels in Australia and New Zealand

Accor is set to expand its premium The Sebel hotel brand with three hotels in Australia and New Zealand scheduled to open within the next 12 months.

The new hotels include The Sebel Yarrawonga (2020), The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood (2021), and The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt (2021).

 The expansion of The Sebel brand in Australia and New Zealand will deliver benefits for guests, loyalty members and their communities, said Simon McGrath AM, Chief Executive Officer for Accor Pacific. Each of these hotels will have significant impacts locally, driving employment and tourism to each location. Accor continues to expand its offerings across Australia and New Zealand - the Pacific is a strong region and the future of travel is bright.

The Sebel Yarrawonga VIC opening 1 November 2020

The much-anticipated The Sebel Yarrawonga located in the picturesque Murray River region adjacent to Silverwoods Golf and Lifestyle Resort, is set to open its doors to guests on 1 November 2020. The multi-million dollar development  is situated an hours drive from Albury town centre, a 3-hour drive from Melbourne and 5 hours from Sydney. The Sebel Yarrawonga will offer 63 stylishly appointed studios rooms and apartments, with a further 54 rooms expected in stage two of the development later in 2022/2023. It will initially open two of its three food and beverage venues Stock & Barrel bar and casual dining and Sunset Pool Bar with Elizabeths fine dining restaurant and functions set to open in December.

The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood VIC opening 22 February 2021

Accor has partnered with the prominent Victorian 'Brady' family of Amber Property Group to open The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood in mid-February 2021, which will welcome 103 rooms, including full apartment-style rooms, to Melbourne's burgeoning Eastern suburbs growth corridor in Ringwood. Spanning six floors, the property will feature 48 studio apartments, 48 one-bedroom suites and seven two-bedroom suites, with guest access to impressive onsite amenities including, an ultra-modern fitness centre, four sophisticated and well-appointed meeting spaces, two practical function rooms, a restaurant, delicatessen and bar and an open-air terrace. Located 23km east of Melbourne's CBD and two minutes from retail shopping mecca Eastland, Ringwood is the gateway to the Yarra Valley and a rapidly growing commercial corridor. With the Victorian Government focused on decentralising business outside of the CBD, Ringwood has certainly been identified as an area of commercial significance, benefiting from major arterial roads and rail connections.

The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt NZ opening June 2021

Accor is once again partnering with the well-known Sarin Family for the new-build The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt, which will open in mid-2021. The property will overlook the Hutt River on the eastern shores of Wellington Harbour, a short distance from Wellington International Airport. Built-in partnership with Hutt City Councils project for the New Civic Centre, which includes a new 800-seater Events Centre adjoining the Citys historic Town Hall, this apartment-style hotel boasts 60 fully serviced studios and one-bedroom apartments. It will provide a modern and convenient place for business and leisure visitors to stay while attending conferences, exhibitions or events. Complete with a restaurant and bar, Biscotti, this new hotel embraces The Sebel brand standards, with warm, stylish and homely furnishings to make guests feel welcome as soon as they arrive in The Sebel lounge.

The addition of these three new hotels take the total number of The Sebel properties across Australia and New Zealand to 35.
