Swissôtel to flag luxury hotel in Odessa, Ukraine

ODESSA, UKRAINE Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts has signed a management deal in Odessa with Ukraine-based investment group Interpoint Development for a luxury hotel slated to open in 2013.

The 333-key Swissôtel Odessa will be the brand’s first property on the Black Sea. It will feature a lobby lounge bar with a library, two restaurants and a brasserie with an extensive terrace overlooking the Black Sea, as well as separate private dining rooms for events. The hotel will also include spacious conference and banquet rooms, a panoramic top-floor lounge, a spa and sport complex, indoor and outdoor pools and direct beach access.

“There has never been a project of this kind in Odessa before,” says Swissôtel President Meinhard Huck. “The location of the hotel on the French Boulevard is really superb. The hotel is situated close to a park area, right on the coast of the Black Sea, and only 4 kilometers from the city centre. Interestingly enough at the end of the 19th century, a summer cottage situated nearby, that used to belong to a mayor of Odessa, was named ‘Switzerland.’ We are looking forward to a fruitful partnership with Interpoint Development and Hi-Raise Constructions, as well as the opening of a new Swissôtel in Eastern Europe.”
