Accor Asia Pacific have taken over the management of the Swiss-Grand Resort and Spa at Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach, and are planning a refurbishment as a part of their growth plans for the property. A popular base for holiday makers and for short breaks, the 4.5 star all-suite hotel is one of Sydney’s most successful conference and function venues.
The 203-room property features stunning views and a resort-style feel in the heart of Bondi’s busy restaurant, retail and entertainment precinct. Resort facilities include a rooftop swimming pool and the Samsara Day Spa, offering Balinese massage and spa treatments in a lush, tropical purpose-built centre. The hotel offers a variety of restaurants and bars, including the signature Epic Brasserie and the Deck Bar and BBQ, which overlooks Bondi Beach.
The Swiss-Grand’s conference and function facilities include a ballroom, meeting and board rooms, and the rooftop Bellevue Terrace, an exclusive reception venue that offers peerless beach views.
Accor Asia Pacific are well-experienced in operating major beachside resorts and can bring a new level of hospitality to the famed hotel. Accor have operated major waterfront hotels such as the Manly Pacific, Novotel Brighton Beach and Novotel Northbeach, all of which have extensive conference facilities. Accor Asia Pacific will use this background and experience to build on the Swiss Grand's position.
Bondi Beach is known throughout the world for its highly attractive beach and relaxed lifestyle and with the hotel’s outstanding position and views. Accor Asia Pacific look forward to bring larger numbers of international, interstate and local visitors to the hotel for conferences, weddings, meetings and indulgent holidays. Plans are developed for soft upgrading of rooms and the function areas, and introduce other new initiatives in facilities and services. Accor Asia Pacific’s hotel brands are Sofitel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure, Suitehotel, Ibis, All Seasons, Etap Hotel, Formule 1 and Motel 6.
