Ibis Styles, the renowned hotel brand synonymous with creative design and playful atmospheres, has today announced the grand opening of its newest hotel in Paignton.

Representing a £30m investment for the local area, the latest addition to the brand’s UK collection aims to redefine the seaside hotel experience in South Devon and is set to open its doors on Tuesday January 16, 2024. 

The new-build hotel is the latest venture from Singapore-based owner Fragrance UK Luxury Hotel Group, who recently opened their neighbouring hotel, the Mercure Paignton Hotel, in April 2023. Similar to its sister site, the ibis Styles Paignton is also franchised by the world class Accor group and operated by RBH Hospitality.

The two new sea-front hotels signify a collective investment for the region of £70m.

The hotel boasts the unique distinction of being the first in the ibis Styles UK collection to feature a dry spa with three beauty treatment rooms alongside a fully-equipped gym. The hotel also offers guests an all day dining experience at Deller’s Cafe, a contemporary dining space with sea views, where British seaside meets American diner delights. In addition to the restaurant, ibis Styles Paignton features an ice-cream parlour and waffle bar.

With 121 spacious and comfortable bedrooms, ranging from standard to superior, the interior design draws inspiration from mythical shorelines as well as the surrounding seaside landscapes, characterised by playful palettes of aqua blues and bold neons.

Jason Parry for ibis Styles Paignton, said: "As the first of its kind in the ibis Styles collection, our hotel represents a truly unique offering for Paignton; a fresh, vibrant and playful space where creativity meets comfort with a splash of fun.

“Standing shoulder to shoulder with our neighbour, the Mercure Paignton, this new hotel marks the latest milestone in our mission to put Paignton on the map as a premier UK holiday destination and contribute to the growth of its dynamic hospitality scene.”

Jason continues: “At the heart of the UNESCO Global Geopark and English Riviera, the beachfront location serves as the perfect backdrop for ibis Styles Paignton. With ibis Styles and Mercure leading the way, we are delighted to be spearheading a new era for this South Devon resort.”

Business guests are also catered for, with the on-site Lighthouse meeting room, which can accommodate up to 6 guests in a well-equipped and tech-savvy space.
