IHG Hotels and Resorts announces the development of Szklarska Poreba, Poland’s first Holiday Inn Resort in the Happiness Valley area.
Expected to open in 2022, IHG Hotels & Resorts announced the signing of Holiday Inn Resort Szklarska Poreba. Situated in the Happiness Valley, the resort is well placed near Wroclaw airport and is conveniently located with close rail and road links.
The 87-room resort is being developed on the wider Horizon Hotel & Resort 1.5-hectare site that will include apartments and recreational areas. Through the use of wellness areas, pools, spas, and mountain views, this resort is designed as an escape from everyday life as well as a base from which to enjoy the local hiking/biking trails and natural scenery on offer.
Willemijn Geels, vice president of development at IHG Hotels & Resorts, commented: “We are proud to bring the first Holiday Inn Resort to Poland. This is a truly remarkable property and a great addition to the Holiday Inn Brand Family, which are the first choice for families and guests who want to explore a wide variety of activities with unbeatable access to some of the world’s most desirable locations – in this case the Happiness Valley area and its incredible mountains in Poland.”
“Together with our partner AKME Wisniewski Szklarska Poreba we are delighted to be bringing our Holiday Inn brand to one of Poland’s increasingly popular leisure destinations. We always aim to match the right brands with the right locations and Holiday Inn Resort Szklarska Poreba is another great example of the clear opportunities there are to expand the IHG Hotels & Resorts footprint in Europe.”
IHG Hotels and Resorts currently operate 15 hotels in Poland, with another 21 in the pipeline for the future.
