SOFITEL ADELAIDE UNVEILS DIVINE INSPIRATION
The much-anticipated opening of Sofitel Adelaide in September will mark the luxury brand’s debut in South Australia. It’s also the first internationally recognised five-star hotel to be built in Adelaide in 30 years.
Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath, said: “Distinguished by its bursting calendar of cultural events and flourishing passions for gastronomy, fine wine, music, fashion and design, Adelaide is an ideal destination for our Sofitel brand. The hotel’s design reflects the distinct sense of style and sophistication of Sofitel. Sofitel Adelaide is one of our biggest hotel openings of 2021 and its level of luxury and onsite amenities will ensure it’s one of Adelaide’s most illustrious new destinations.”
Located in the heart of Adelaide on Currie Street, the design of Adelaide’s new $150 million flagship Sofitel hotel was led by Adelaide-raised Carl Almeida from P49 DEESIGN – an award-winning global interior design practice specialising in hotels and resorts, including the interior design of Accor’s iconic SO/ Melbourne, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi (Vietnam), Raffles Udaipur (India), and Fairmont Mumbai (India).
Sofitel Adelaide is part of a 32-story mixed-use tower by Palumbo Group, which in addition to being a hotel, will also house one of the tallest residential developments in South Australia. The glass-walled building is set to become a glittering addition to the skyline, especially at night. Of the 32 stories, the first 24 will be dedicated to the hotel and its leisure and business facilities, which will include a French-inspired restaurant, two bars, swimming pool, SoFIT health and fitness centre, meeting and private dining rooms and a Sofitel Club Lounge.
In line with Sofitel’s ethos, Sofitel Adelaide promises to deliver an array of ‘magnifique’ experiences, embracing local culture and encouraging guests to ‘Live the French Way’ by enjoying the best in gastronomy and wellbeing.
The largest hotel operator in Australia, Accor has 15 hotels across South Australia, with 12 of these in the city of Adelaide. Sofitel Adelaide will join a growing portfolio of five Sofitel hotels and resorts in Australia and more than 120 globally.
