Two new hotels are set to open in the Faroe Islands in 2020, doubling the capital’s current bedroom capacity to approximately six hundred. There are currently an additional one hundred hotel bedrooms spread across the country.
Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands
The national airline of the Faroe Islands, Atlantic Airways, and Faroese pension and insurance company, Tryggingarfelagið LÍV, have joined forces to build a new four-star hotel in of the capital overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel will be part of the international Hilton concern and will be called Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands.
The hotel’s manager, Martin Restorff, has vast experience working in the hotel industry in the Faroe Islands and Denmark. He is pleased to be joining forces with Hilton which has over one hundred million clients and is a prominent competitor in Asia and the USA.
“The Hilton name gives us access to a versatile and exciting range of clients,” says Martin. “The Faroe Islands will be visible on the Hilton map which is a fantastic foundation to build on, in addition to the marketing that is currently being done in the tourism industry.”
Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands will have 130 bedrooms and will live up to the high standards of the Hilton concern.
“We will do our utmost to provide our clients with the best service possible,” says Martin.
New addition to the Hotel Hafnia family
The second hotel will be owned by Smyril Line, a Faroese shipping company, and run by the well-established management of Hotel Hafnia.
The four-star hotel, which currently does not have an official name, will include 126 bedrooms and will be located close to the capital’s sports hub and shopping centre. Hotel Hafnia, the recently renovated downtown hotel that also runs Hotel Skálavík, will add the new hotel to the family in May 2020.
