Accor and Arora Group are to open Fairmont Windsor Park. The hotel is currently being redeveloped and will open in the second half of 2020.
The hotel is located next to Windsor Great Park and Savill Gardens, and situated on the former site of Savill Court Hotel and Spa, which was owned and operated by Arora Group.
The hotel will be the third Fairmont property in the UK, joining The Savoy in London and Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland.
The hotel will have 200 rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, treatment rooms, salt room, hammam and a Japanese foot spa with views over the courtyard and fire pit.
There will also be 16 meeting rooms on offer, and a ballroom that can cater for up to 700 guests.
Marc Dardenne, CCO, Luxury Brands, Accor Europe, said: “Through strategic investment, exceptional brand management and focused operations, Accor has established itself as a leader in the global luxury hotel market with a dedicated portfolio that includes many of the world’s most prestigious brands. We feel Fairmont is an ideal match for this remarkable hotel asset and look forward to showcasing all the brand has to offer in historic Windsor.”
Surinder Arora, founder and chairman of Arora Group, said: “We are incredibly proud to bring the prestigious Fairmont brand to Arora’s growing portfolio of hotels. Over the last decade our estate has grown significantly, with this amazing new hotel joining our other flagship properties. Our team cannot wait to open the door to our first guests and ensure they receive the absolute highest standards of service in this beautiful property. This is so much more than a hotel – the dining options, stunning spa facilities and event spaces on offer, all set in this beautiful country location, make it an unmissable experience. We are so proud to be opening in Windsor and to have the Fairmont brand added to our portfolio.”
Thomas Dubaere, COO, Accor Northern Europe, added: “The signing of Fairmont Windsor Park with Arora Hotels reflects our expertise in the luxury segment and is an extremely exciting addition to our luxury portfolio in the UK. The signing also underlines our ambitious regional expansion plans demonstrating the UK’s continued role as a key global market.”
