Hilton (NYSE:HLT) today announced plans to open a new hotel in the Baltic resort city of Świnoujście, following a franchise agreement with Zdrojowa Hotels. Hilton Świnoujście Resort & Spa, a Hilton Hotels & Resorts property, is due to open by 2020.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton, said: ‘Demand for hotels in Poland is on the rise. Baltic resort cities, such as Świnoujście, Kołobrzeg and Gdańsk, are increasingly popular domestically and abroad. Once open, Hilton Świnoujście Resort & Spa will be a leading resort hotel on the Baltic coast and a fine addition to our Hilton Hotels & Resorts offering in Europe.’
Świnoujście is a thriving destination, attracting visitors throughout the year, due to the busy port city’s health and spa offerings. Located on Usedom Island, near Poland’s border with Germany, Świnoujście is popular among Polish, German and ferrying Scandinavian visitors and is renowned for its wide unspoilt beaches, attractive sailing and kitesurfing spots, wildlife conservation areas and historical forts.
Construction has already started on the property, which will include a minimum of 167 guestrooms, a spa, fitness room and gym, restaurants and lobby and rooftop bars. Guests will also have access to the already-open indoor water park, which includes five pools and various family and recreation attractions, such as slides, surf wave and saunas.
Jan Wróblewski, Zdrojowa Invest & Hotels co-owner, said: ‘We are the leading resort hotels investor and operator in Poland. Hilton Świnoujście Resort & Spa is a partnership with Hilton in the Baltic Park Molo, the largest leisure complex on the Polish Baltic sea coast. The new property will enhance the city’s wide hotel offering, and we cannot wait to begin welcoming guests by 2020.’
Globally, Hilton has more than 200 resorts in the world’s most sought-after destinations. In Europe, Hilton Świnoujście Resort & Spa will join nearly 15 resorts in markets, such as Switzerland, France, Italy, Croatia and Spain.
Hilton Świnoujście Resort & Spa will be located in the Baltic Park Molo Avenue, 72-600, Świnoujście.
