The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database reveals that IHG’s Hotel Indigo brand is planning to grow its presence around the world, but with a special focus on the APAC region.
Over the next few years, Hotel Indigo will open 91 hotels with 15,608 rooms in total, our research indicates. We take a closer look at its development slate.
Hotel Indigo’s hotel openings by year
For the remainder of 2021, 18 Hotel Indigo properties with 3,123 rooms are scheduled to make their debut globally.
Moreover, 2022 will be another busy year for the upscale brand, with 31 scheduled launches set to bring 5,367 keys into play. Another 19 properties are on the cards for 2023, introducing a further 3,658 rooms, while 23 projects and 3,460 keys are pencilled in for 2024 and beyond.
Top growth regions for Hotel Indigo
APAC will see by far the most growth of any region, according to our figures – 55 hotels with 10,357 keys will go live here in the coming years. China will get the lion’s share of these new properties; 44 are due to open in the People’s Republic alone, adding 8,447 rooms to the mix.
Europe follows in a very distant second place, with 17 openings and 2,165 rooms. Of these, seven properties and 1,974 keys are being lined up for the UK, bolstering its already significant footprint in the country.
The flag will also grow rapidly in North America, where 14 projects with 2,256 keys are currently in the pipeline. Nearly all of its expansion in this region involves the US – 13 projects with 1,974 rooms are slated to open in the Land of the Free.
As for the rest, Hotel Indigo is planning to open four properties in the Middle East and just one in Latin America.
Ongoing hotel Indigo projects to watch
Let’s look at some of the new properties planned for Hotel Indigo’s key growth area, APAC.
In early 2023, the 200-key Hotel Indigo Jakarta Pantai Indah Kapuk will open its doors in Indonesia’s capital. The brand’s first site in Jakarta will blend cultural influences from the city with zen-inspired architecture and design. The property will boast a 1,076 sq m adaptable function room capable of hosting up to 375 guests, as well as a well-equipped gym, a selection of F&B outlets and in-house retail facilities.
Also set to open in early 2023, Indigo Xi’an Chanba Tengxun will be the brand’s first property in Northwest China, occupying one of six towers that make up a vast new development. Guests can look forward to enjoying the 200-room hotel’s modern design and amenities, as well as sweeping views of the city and the river. Of course, the world-famous Terracotta Army is also close by.
Much further south, in New Zealand to be precise, Hotel Indigo Auckland will open in late 2022 as part of a soaring mixed-use development. The façade of the original structure will be maintained and new modern elements will be added around it. Set in a coveted downtown location, the hotel will offer an all-day dining venue, a bar, meeting spaces, a gym and 225 rooms boasting stunning views of the city and its iconic harbour.
