Accor India and South Asia development vice-president Aniruddh Kumar said: “We are pleased to add Grand Mercure Jaipur Kukas to our growing portfolio in India.
“With its contemporary style and culturally immersive vibe, the hotel is a perfect fit for this enchanting destination. We look forward to showcasing the authentic spirit of Rajasthan to our experience-seeking domestic and international visitors.”
Shree Kamalam Elite Resorts shareholder Madan Meena said: “As the proud partners of Accor in launching Grand Mercure Jaipur Kukas, we are excited to contribute to Jaipur’s hospitality landscape.
“This property will reflect royalty of the bygone era of Jaipur and will embody the essence of a Rajputana lifestyle with a global mindset.”
Grand Mercure is a brand designed for modern travellers seeking both premium comforts and cultural connections.
Accor’s portfolio in India currently comprises 61 properties operating under various brands including ibis, Fairmont, Mercure, Novotel, Pullman, Raffles and Sofitel.
The latest addition comes after the company unveiled a new extended stay concept under the Novotel brand in Bangkok, Thailand, last December.
The Novotel Living Bangkok Sukhumvit Legacy property aims to provide a ‘home away from home’ experience for travellers, regardless of the length of their stay.
