Marriott International’s Moxy brand has moved a step closer to opening a sustainability-oriented scheme with 200 keys and outstanding views in the far north of Scandinavia.

Tromsø, which lies within the Arctic Circle, is eagerly awaiting the debut of a new lifestyle hotel.

Showcasing sustainable development

Building work has now started on Moxy Tromsø, the result of a collaboration between Marriott International, Daimyo Eiendom and Core Hospitality, ahead of its planned opening in the first half of 2023. It’s expected that the eco-friendly scheme will be certified by Breeam as a sustainable building and by Green Key for sustainable operations.

“We are delighted to have begun construction of this extraordinary project,” said Anne Aubert, project manager at Daimyo Eiendom. “Daimyo is a Norwegian investment company that invests in sustainable companies and properties. And Moxy Tromsø is no exception with high ambitions for sustainability, double certifying the property as both a Breeam and Green Key hotel.”

A new hospitality offering in Tromsø

Tromsø typically attracts adventurous travellers looking to experience the spectacular Arctic environment for themselves.

“We are eager to open a unique hotel brand in Norway that differs from the market’s saturation of local brands,” explained Per Denker Sørensen, CEO of the hotel’s operator Core Hospitality. “The natural beauty of Tromsø is evident, so we decided to design the reception space and common areas on the top floor. This allows all our guests to enjoy the wonderful view from the 11th floor while they have a meal and cocktails from the bar.”

Core Hospitality also operates Moxy Bergen and Moxy Copenhagen.
