With a further 100 hotels in its pipeline, the brand is set to double its portfolio over the next three to five years and continue its strong growth as one of the largest boutique brands in this fast-growing segment, according to IHG. 

In the coming years, Hotel Indigo is set to debut in more than 10 new countries, including the UAE, Peru, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam, as well as expand in markets where Hotel Indigo already has a foothold.

Together with IHG’s Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand, IHG’s boutique portfolio makes up almost 170 hotels globally.
