The lifestyle hotel, owned by the Reuben Brothers, will open its doors July following a major overhaul and complete redesign by award-winning London interior design studio Goddard Littlefair.
Under the terms of partnership, the French hospitality giant is taking full ownership of assets including the Delano, Mondrian, Hyde and SLS brands.
Accor and sbe have confirmed the first Mondrian hotel and branded residences in Australia will be built at Burleigh Heads Beachfront on the Gold Coast. It is hoped the property will open in 2022.
Accor has signed an agreement to turn the five-star London hotel, the Curtain, into a Mondrian hotel in collaboration with current owner Reuben Brothers.
Through this partnership, AccorHotels will pursue its strategy to expand its offering in the luxury lifestyle hospitality segment and its footprint in gateway cities across North America.
Hotel giant AccorHotels has dropped plans for a potential stake in Air France-KLM. In June, as part of its strategy to develop its range of services in the travel space, Accor had stated it was considering the establishment of a strategic alliance with the airline group.
AccorHotels and sbe Entertainment Group have signed a letter of intent and entered into exclusive negotiations for AccorHotels to acquire a 50 per cent stake in sbe.
