Accor and Arora brings Fairmont brand to Windsor
Accor and Arora Group has announced the signing of The Fairmont Windsor Park. The hotel is currently undergoing a multi-million-pound redevelopment and will open in 2020.
The Fairmont Windsor Park hotel will be the third Fairmont property in the UK alongside The Savoy in London and Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland.
The hotel is located adjacent to Windsor Great Park and Savill Gardens. It is also located on the former site of Savill Court Hotel and Spa, which was owned by Arora Group and is now being redeveloped. The hotel will feature a 2,500sqm spa and wellness area, which will include an indoor lap pool and outdoor vitality pool, treatment rooms, salt room, Hammam and Japanese foot spa.
As part of its food and beverage offering, the hotel will have a tea lounge, specialist dining restaurant and a champagne bar. There will also be an all-day dining venue. Fairmont Windsor Park will offer 16 meeting rooms, an 800sqm ballroom which can cater for 700 guests, two private terraces and a garden for outdoor functions.
Marc Dardenne, chief operating officer, Luxury Brands, Accor Europe, believes The Fairmont is an “ideal match for this hotel asset” and “looks forward to showcasing all the brand has to offer in historic Windsor.”
Surinder Arora, founder and chairman, Arora Group, added: “We are incredibly proud to bring the Fairmont brand to Arora’s growing portfolio of hotels. Over the last decade our estate has grown significantly, with this new hotel joining our other flagship properties.”
