Accor is partnering with Allenort Group for the new Mövenpick hotel in the heart of Gdynia. The future facility will offer hotel services to tourists and business guests, featuring 176 rooms with a rich F&B offer, conference and banquet halls, a spa with a pool and treatment rooms, as well as underground parking. The investor received business advisory support from the HIDA Company.
"Allenort Group expands its operation to the hospitality industry. After almost 20 years of active operations in the medical sector, the company is setting a new premium challenge – a large luxury hotel and service complex in the most prestigious location in Gdynia. The premise of the investment is to create a new city centre and give the residents of Gdynia a leisure infrastructure that is friendly to their lives", said Dr Grzegorz Goryszewski, President of Allenort Group. "We are betting on Accor – this is a unique place, and that’s why it needs to be given to the best professionals to manage", he added.
The complex, located at 13 Jana Pawla II Avenue, will consist of two buildings connected by an above-ground walkway, Mövenpick Hotel Gdynia with 176 rooms, and Waterhall Residence apartments.
Mövenpick Hotel Gdynia, equipped with an underground parking lot, is planned to have space for two restaurants, a sky bar, a conference centre with a total area of 460 sqm, and a spa area with an indoor pool and treatment rooms.
"The location and character of the new facility perfectly correspond to the vision of hospitality promoted by the Mövenpick brand, which derives from the tradition of Swiss hospitality. The hotel and residence complex being built by our partner gracefully relates to the architectural identity of Gdynia and will undoubtedly become one of the most distinctive elements of its waterfront. I am convinced that Mövenpick Hotel Gdynia will appeal to travellers from all over the world who visit the Tri-City in large numbers", said Jacek Stasikowski, Accor Development Director in Poland.
Mövenpick Hotel Gdynia will occupy a plot of land located on the first line of the waterfront, at the representative Kosciuszko Square – at the entrance to the South Pier, where the sailing ship Dar Pomorza and the destroyer ORP Blyskawica are moored. Right next door are the Marina Gdynia and the city beach. The lump of the designed building is a nod to the best architectural patterns of Gdynia, whose early-modern centre was officially submitted earlier this year as a Polish candidate for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
"We look forward to the moment when Mövenpick Hotel Gdynia welcomes its first guests. Our facilities will perfectly fit into the modernist landscape of the city and meet the expectations of modern travellers and residents. Thanks to our cooperation with the Accor Group, we will not only offer world-class services but also implement the sustainable development solutions developed by our partner", added Dr Grzegorz Goryszewski.
The newly built Mövenpick Hotel Gdynia will welcome its first guests as early as 2026, according to the plan. Mövenpick is a premium brand belonging to the Accor Group, whose portfolio currently includes more than 110 properties worldwide – both city hotels and resorts located in top tourist destinations. Hailing from Switzerland, the brand is increasingly making its presence felt in Poland.
