New Yarra Val­ley prop­erty

Travel Daily - - News -

IN­TER­CON­TI­NEN­TAL Ho­tels Group will bring its new “voco” brand to Vic­to­ria’s Yarra Val­ley in 2021, this morn­ing con­firm­ing a 170-room new­build.

IHG said voco Yarra Val­ley would be the “first glob­ally-branded up­scale ho­tel” in the pop­u­lar wine re­gion.

It’s the sec­ond sign­ing for the voco brand in Aus­tralia, with the Gold Coast’s Wa­ter­mark Ho­tel & Spa to open un­der the new flag later this year ( TD 13 Jun).

IHG’s se­nior direc­tor of de­vel­op­ment for Aus­trala­sia, Ab­hi­jay Sandilya, said the new Yarra Val­ley prop­erty would have a range of unique fea­tures such as an on-site gin dis­tillery, a laven­der farm, mir­rored maze and a store sell­ing lo­cal pro­duce.

“We are so pleased to see the brand mo­men­tum con­tinue...voco de­liv­ers a guest ex­pe­ri­ence that stands out, with touches of charm and mem­o­rable, dis­tinc­tive and de­pend­able hall­marks,” he said.

The ho­tel is sit­u­ated on the Ma­roon­dah High­way less than an hour’s drive from the Mel­bourne CBD, and brings IHG’s to­tal Aus­tralasian port­fo­lio to 70 ex­ist­ing and pipe­line prop­er­ties.
