The region now accounts for over 30% of global rooms and 51% of the global pipeline. 

AccorHotels has opened its 1000th hotel in Asia Pacific with the opening of Pullman Tokyo Tamachi, bringing the group’s presence to over 200,000 rooms in the region. 

The region now accounts for over 30% of global rooms and 51% of the global pipeline. 

“For the first half of 2018, 72% of global room openings for the group were in Asia Pacific,” said Michael Issenberg, CEO Asia-Pacific AccorHotels. “We currently open, on average, a new hotel in Asia Pacific every three days, but our goal is to move this to a new hotel every second day by 2020 and one hotel per day globally.”

The region’s network has doubled in size over the past three years through organic growth and acquisitions. The portfolio now includes some of the world’s most iconic and respected brands such as Raffles, Orient Express, Fairmont, Banyan Tree, Delano, Mondrian, SLS, Swissôtel and Mövenpick. 

The recent addition of Mantra Hotels also added a further 19,000 rooms to the region.

Boosted by Asia’s strong business performance, the region saw robust rooms growth and revenue per available room (RevPar) up 5% (like for like) for the first half of 2018.

The 143-key Pullman Tokyo Tamachi will be the group’s 75th Pullman in Asia Pacific in ten years. Having launched in Thailand in 2008, Pullman has become one of the group’s most successful brands with a network of more than 125 hotels globally.
