Nobu Hospitality has announced its continued global expansion with a new property in Warsaw, Poland.

Nobu Hotel Warsaw will be situated in the heart of the historic city.
With 120-rooms, expansive meeting and event spaces, fitness centre and signature Nobu Restaurant, it will be an integrated mix of luxurious hotel and energised living spaces.
Warsaw is the cultural heart of Poland, and one of the country’s most dynamic cities.
With a booming business community, Warsaw has been ranked as the seventh greatest emerging market in the world and continues to evolve as a vibrant leisure destination.
Trevor Horwell, chief executive of Nobu Hotels, said: “As we enter 2019, this is our newest hotel in Europe and the start of an exciting future partnership.
“We are truly proud to announce Nobu Hotel Warsaw to our growing Nobu Hotel and Restaurant family.
Karolina Kaim, president of Tacit Investment said, “Nobu is a global brand, recognisable thanks to the passion of its founders, exceptional service and excellent cuisine.
In combination with Polish openness and energy, we will create an exciting and unique place that will win the hearts of visiting guests.
We are especially pleased that we will be able to offer our clients the most famous dishes of the Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, served in Nobu restaurants around the world and for years well known as the highest quality Asian cuisine.”
“This takes our hotel portfolio to 17 hotels underpinning our strategy to carve out our own niche whilst staying true to our brand and loyal Nobu customer.”
The company expects to launch locations in Los Cabos and Barcelona this summer, another in Chicago late this year and, eventually, a 20th property sometime in 2020.
