Accor to bring second Mövenpick hotel Down Under

Accor, together with Singapore’s Fragrance Group, will open Australia’s second Mövenpick hotel in Melbourne next month.

Situated at the meeting point of Melbourne’s iconic Spencer and Bourke Streets in the CBD, the 172-room premium hotel will form the six-level podium of the 78-storey Elenberg Fraser architect-designed Premier Tower development.

Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer will feature contemporary design and boutique interiors, a dedicated café serving the brand’s signature ice cream, an exotic blend of modern Southeast Asian cuisine at its very own Miss Mi restaurant and bar, a daily ‘Chocolate Hour’ and an assortment of other Mövenpick brand signature offerings.

The new property will also contain a 25-metre swimming pool, a sauna, a well-equipped gym and a boardroom.

Simon McGrath, CEO of Accor for the Pacific, said the hospitality giant was delighted to be bringing the Mövenpick hotel brand to Melbourne.

“This investment will benefit the local community by providing a choice of even greater accommodation options for visitors to the city and for Accor loyalty guests,” he said.

“The city of Melbourne is the perfect location for a Mövenpick hotel, enriching Melbourne’s incredible culinary scene with an outstanding restaurant and bar, and masterfully blending the brand’s Swiss heritage with a top-quality hospitality experience.”

Fragrance Group CEO James Koh said: “We are excited to further develop our partnership with Accor and deliver Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer, which will be a unique addition to Melbourne’s tourism offering.

“We can’t wait to unveil this exquisite hotel and showcase its showstopper Miss Mi venue to Melburnians and those visiting the culture capital of Australia.”

Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer is the second Mövenpick hotel Koh has partnered with Accor on in Australia, following the opening of Mövenpick Hotel Hobart in January.
