NH Hotel Group shareholders have voted to change the company’s registered name to Minor Hotels Europe and Americas, in a bid to strengthen its integration with Minor Hotels.

The vote, held at the company’s Annual General Meeting on Friday April 19, follows a move by Minor International (MINT) last year to increase its stake in NH Hotel Group to 95.9%.

Responsible for more than 350 properties in 30 countries across both Europe and the Americas, Minor Hotels Europe and Americas will serve as “a single, recognisable corporate identity” for stakeholders and strengthen the global commercial and operational structure, the company said.

“Adopting the Minor Hotels Europe and Americas name represents an important milestone in how Minor Hotels has become a globally recognised organisation, now under one corporate identity,” said Minor International Group CEO and Minor Hotels CEO, Dillip Rajakarier.

“Together, our Minor Hotels team’s shared passion and relentless pursuit of excellence will be instrumental in unlocking new business opportunities to achieve our ambitious growth targets in the coming years.”

Following MINT’s acquisition of 94.1% of the company in October 2018, Minor Hotels and NH Hotel Group unified their global portfolio of eight brands – Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas, Avani Hotels and Resorts, Elewana Collection, NH Hotels and Resorts, NH Collection Hotels and Resorts, nhow Hotels and Resorts, Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites and Tivoli Hotels and Resorts – and introduced them to new markets around the globe

 The collaboration between the two groups has seen the introduction of two NH Hotel Group’s trademarked brands – NH and NH Collection – into markets in Asia, the Middle East and the Indian Ocean, with further expansion in the pipeline.

It has also reinforced Minor Hotels’ position in the upscale and luxury segments in Europe and the Americas through openings of Anantara, Avani and Tivoli branded properties.

Minor Hotels Europe and Americas plans to grow across all segments, with a focus on its upper-upscale and luxury brands.

Established with one property in Thailand in 1978, Minor Hotels has grown to one of the world’s largest global hospitality groups, with over 80,000 rooms spread across more than 540 hotels in 56 countries and a collection of related businesses. 

By the end of 2026, Minor Hotels aims to add a further 200 properties globally, more than 50 of which will be in Europe, with the Americas also to see new openings across the Minor Hotels brand portfolio.
