The first hotel under the Mercure brand will open in Armenia

Accor, a world-leading hospitality group, and Project Inter-Invest LLC have signed a cooperation agreement to open the first Mercure hotel in Armenia, located in the heart of the popular ski and climatic resort Tsaghkadzor. The Golden Palace Hotel Resort and Spa will reopen under the Mercure brand by the end of 2022 following a full refurbishment.

Mercure will open following the renovation and rebranding of the popular Golden Palace Hotel Resort and Spa, offering all the benefits of international service standards and access to the unique loyalty program ALL - Accor Live Limitless.

While every Mercure hotel is unique, all share the same passion for high-quality service and local discovery. Guests will be able to choose among 120 elegant rooms designed in the Mercure brand's signature style with a local flavor. The seven-story building will also house a restaurant, bar, several shops, and a fitness center with a magnificent swimming pool. Future developments include an international casino and a state-of-the-art full-service spa on the ground floor of the hotel. Guests will also enjoy 24-hour room service, a business center and free parking.

Tsaghkadzor is one of Armenia's most popular ski, spa and health resorts, famous for its ski slopes and mountain air. Surrounded by picturesque meadows, Tsaghkadzor, which translates as the valley of flowers, spreads out on the southeastern slope of Mount Teghenis, 50km from the capital of Armenia. Its nature impresses with its richness and splendor.

The new Mercure hotel will occupy a convenient position on an elevated site, providing ski enthusiasts easy access to the ski slopes of Mount Teghenis. The ski park is just 100 meters away and guests can reach the Tsaghkadzor ropeway in 8 minutes.

The architectural sights of Tsaghkadzor, just a 20-minute walk away from the hotel, also deserve special attention: the medieval Kecharis monastery complex, founded in the 11th century and the Orbeli brothers' house-museum of eminent scientists of the world science.
