Accor has announced the future opening of a Mercure hotel in the ancient Uzbeki city of Khiva. The property will be built under a cooperation agreement with SRG Projects LLC.
Set to open in 2025, Mercure Khiva will boast 146 guestrooms, a wellness centre with a swimming pool and a gym, as well as a restaurant, a café, and conference spaces. It will be located on the territory of the city’s former Mevaston mahalla.
Khiva is considered as one of the cradles of civilisations and has a history dating back some 2,500 years. Its is notable for its Old Town of Itchan Kala, which covers an area of 22 hectares with 2 royal palaces, 27 madrassahs, a large Juma Mosque, many small mosques, mausoleums, a bazaar, a caravanserai, and hammams. The UNESCO World Heritage site will be a few minutes’ walk from the new Mercure.
We are delighted to expand our presence in Uzbekistan and add a new city to the map of Accor Group. Khiva is one of the most important centres of the Great Silk Road, along with Samarkand and Bukhara. The key features of the future hotel, such as comfort, chic, elegance, and local spirit, will perfectly emphasise the true beauty of the ancient East, embodied in this unique oasis city. We are confident that Mercure Khiva and its surroundings will leave an indelible impression on our guests.
