Minor Hotels to bring Avani brand to South Korea

Minor Hotels will bring its Avani brand to South Korea with the Avani Busan Hotel. A management agreement for the Avani Busan has been signed between the hotel developer, UL Group, and Minor Hotels, with the new-build, 400-guestrom property scheduled to open in 2019.
Currently under development, the Avani Busan will be located in the East Busan Tourism Complex Zoning. It will also include 136 branded residences.

“South Korea is an important feeder market for Minor Hotels and we also see a lot of opportunity as an inbound market, both for this new Avani and potentially for future Minor Hotels’ properties as well,” William E. Heinecke, founder, chairman and CEO of Minor International PCL said in a statement.
