Accor to run Chows’ Rotorua hotel

NZAX-listed property company Chow Group Ltd’s management company, CGML Ltd, has awarded the management contract for its Rotorua hotel to AccorHotels.

CGML bought the 30-year-old, 10-storey, 8000m² office Zens Centre at 1135 Arawa St in 2015 and is converting it into a 130-room hotel.

Director John Chow (pictured in front of the building with mayor Steve Chadwick) said it would carry a 5-star brand. Work on architectural plans has started and the conversion should start in July. It’s expected to open at the end of 2018 or early 2019.

AccorHotels already operates a Novotel in Rotorua and the ibis Rotorua Lakeside.

Ms Chadwick said the retail & tourism sectors were doing extremely well in Rotorua and its economy was performing above the national average: “Rotorua is growing & thriving. Our population now exceeds 70,000 and continues to grow, and unemployment is dropping. It’s important that we continue to build on these positive achievements, and projects such as the Chow Group’s new upscale hotel are critical to our success, improving our tourism infrastructure and creating work opportunities.”
