IN the past year, agoda’s accommodation listings have doubled, and now online travel booking platform offers over two millions properties worldwide. With so many new options available, agoda has curated a list based on some of the most stand-out 2017 property openings around the world with options for every travel adventure.
agoda’s global director for Brand and Communications, Andrew Edwards, says: “There have been some incredible hotel openings in the last 12 months. From luxury resorts to quirky motels, the latest hotel openings have something for everyone this year.”
“One thing that stands out is that the calibre of new more affordable properties has been particularly high. Travellers are increasingly demanding more for less, and as cash-strapped millennials make up more of the travel market, the industry is tapping into the demand for affordable accommodation that doesn’t compromise on atmosphere and quality.”
