Accor and sbe, an international hospitality group that develops, manages and operates award-winning brands, have unveiled the first Mondrian hotel in the Asia Pacific; Mondrian Seoul Itaewon.
The South Korea-based property is the fifth hotel in the Mondrian portfolio. Mondrian Seoul Itaewon features 296 rooms and suites and offers five restaurant and bar options. The outdoor pool features a spacious viewing deck overlooking the city.
Other new Mondrian hotels are slated to open in Bordeaux and Cannes next year. Accor and sbe plan to expand the Mondrian lifestyle hotel portfolio to approximately 15 properties by 2022.
Together, Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, Mondrian Bordeaux, and Mondrian Cannes represent the continued expansion of the brand’s international footprint and restaurants and lounges in collaboration with sbe partner Accor, including soon-to-be-announced Mondrian properties in Australia, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Located in the internationally diverse district of Itaewon, the Mondrian will present an immersive lifestyle destination with bold design, colourful art, and seductive restaurant and nightlife offerings.
“We are proud to introduce the first Mondrian in the Asia Pacific together with our partner sbe,” said Michael Issenberg, Chairman & CEO of Accor Asia Pacific. “The Mondrian brand captivates the energy of Seoul with its creativity, revolutionary design and exciting bars and restaurants.
