Movenpick Hotels & Resorts to open a new property in Kochi, India

Movenpick Hotels & Resorts will open a 167-room hotel in Kochi, India, by December, increasing its portfolio in the country to three. 

The Zurich-based heritage hotel already manages Movenpick Hotel in Bangalore and a spa and resort in Dharamshala in Himachal. The Kochi property will also be on the same model. 

Movenpick signed a management agreement with ITMA Hotels, an associate company of the Kochi-based Jomer Properties & Investments, and the property is expected to be open by the end of the year.
