Accor is opening three new properties across Australia and New Zealand under its luxury hotel brand The Sebel over the next 12 months.

The Sebel Yarrawonga in Victoria is slated to open on November 1, while The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood and The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt will open in the first half of 2021.

“Trusted brands, like The Sebel, bring quality and credibility to the serviced apartments sector, which has been rapidly growing in popularity,” said Simon McGrath, Accor Pacific CEO.

“We are expecting to see a boom in this area, particularly in the current climate, as serviced apartments limit unnecessary contact with other guests and offer a safe and secure way to travel.

“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.”
