Hospitality group Accor, along with real estate company Ant Development, has announced that it will open a hotel under the SO/ Hotels & Resorts brand in Moscow in 2023.

The luxury lifestyle hotel will be located in Poklonnaya 9, an under-construction premium class apartment complex in the city.

The property will be the first SO/ brand property in Moscow.

Accor Russia, Georgia, Ukraine and CIS chief operating officer Alexis Delaroff said: “I am very pleased that our luxurious and fashionable SO/ brand is coming to Moscow and especially in such an iconic place as Kutuzovsky Prospect and Poklonnaya Gora.

“This luxury brand, which is known for its avant-garde design, high fashion influences and trend-setting events, will add a French-infused charm and high-class ambience to the Moscow location. It will undoubtedly become a place of attraction for guests and locals alike.”

Tabanlıoğlu Architects bureau will be responsible for the architecture of the hotel, while the property’s public spaces and guestrooms will be designed by the Rockwell Group.

The SO/ Moscow hotel will have a restaurant, bars, lounge areas and co-working spaces. It will also feature a fitness centre with panoramic pool, yoga, functional training rooms, and a spa.

Ant Development managing partner Güven Dündar said: “ANT Development and SO/ Hotels & Resorts have a very similar vision of how modern luxury living should look, whether it’s an apartment complex or a hotel.

“From the very beginning, we set out to create a place that would not only serve and attract residents, but in fact become the leading lifestyle, dining, entertainment and recreation destination for the Moscow social scene.

“SO/ locations are not just hotels, they are truly unique spaces, that you want to come back to time and again.”
