Upscale hotel company announces discounts of up to 30 per cent for summer 2014

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, the hotel company of Swiss heritage that operates 80 hotels worldwide, has published its special rates for the 2014 summer season. Discounts of up to 30 per cent are being offered at most of its hotels on selected dates from 1 June until 30 September as part of the ‘Summer Sunshine’ offer.

The company’s annual summer campaign has a loyal following, and in the past has resulted in hundreds of room nights being booked during the promotional period. This year, guests who book their stays through moevenpick-hotels.com will also receive complimentary Wi-Fi.

"Our summer promotion is truly a global one that appeals to travellers all over the world who wish to discover pristine beaches, captivating cities, natural wonders, cuisine and culture further afield. The savings are naturally a significant advantage, but we also add some useful value-added benefits like free internet," said Paul Mulcahy, Vice President of Distribution and Revenue Management for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

Properties that offer the discounted summer rates are spread across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Promotional rates start from as little as US$69 (approx. GB£42) per night in Essen, Germany. Several destinations can be booked for less than US$90 (approx. GB£54) per night, including Saigon, Cairo, Frankfurt, Izmir and Dubai.

Beach holidays, which are always popular during summer, can be enjoyed at some of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ landmark properties in Thailand, Philippines, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Engaging city breaks to destinations like Paris, Berlin, Lausanne, Geneva, Amsterdam and Istanbul are also included in the ‘Summer Sunshine’ offer. A number of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts properties offer access to beautiful desert landscapes, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and other natural marvels.
