IHG Hotels & Resorts and development firm Pelligra Group have expanded their partnership with the signing of an agreement for Holiday Inn & Suites Mawson Lakes in Australia.

Located in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, the 130-room hotel will be situated adjacent to the University of South Australia Mawson Lakes campus, Mawson Central Shopping Centre and the Parafield Airport.

The property will feature an Open Lobby, all-day dining restaurant and lobby bar, conferencing facilities and gymnasium.

IHG Japan, Australasia and Pacific SVP managing director Leanne Harwood said: “Being here today, announcing a state-of-the-art, new-build hotel with one of our great partners, Ross Pelligra, is incredible and a true testament to the trust and strength of our relationship.

“We have a shared vision of creating world-class, cutting-edge hotels and the Pelligra Group clearly has an affinity for our brands, and we would love to grow that together. It is an honour to be here today alongside Ross and his team and to be building on these foundations that we have built, together.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the local community and see the hotel take shape in the coming months.”

Holiday Inn & Suites Mawson Lakes is a joint venture between the Pelligra Group and ONE7 Developments (Bruno Muscatello and Chris Bivone).

The hotel is slated to open in 2024.

With the latest agreement, IHG and Pelligra currently have six properties open or signed.

The property will complement other IHGs hotels including InterContinental Adelaide, Holiday Inn Express Adelaide City Centre and others. It will be IHG’s fifth hotel in Adelaide.

Late last month, the new-build Voco Melbourne Central hotel opened in Melbourne, Australia.
