Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa, part of the Arora Group, will undergo a multi-million pound redevelopment and reopen under the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts brand.

The Arora Group first acquired Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa in December 2021. Dating back to 1601, the estate spans 1,100 acres of pristine land on the border of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

This announcement demonstrates the growing partnership between Arora Group and global hospitality group Accor.

Arora Group currently works with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts on Fairmont Windsor Park, which opened in early 2022.
