Hilton has announced it will debut its Hilton Garden Inn brand in the Faroe Islands in 2020, making it the first international hotel group to operate there.

The Hilton Garden Inn Faroe will be located in the capital city, Torshavn, and is currently under construction.

The hotel will feature 131 guest rooms, a restaurant, a spa and “a flexible meeting space,” according to Hilton.

The new hotel is one of more than 100 Hilton Garden Inn hotels currently open or under development in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The new project was announced following a franchise agreement between Hilton Worldwide and P/F Hotel Atlantic, a subsidiary of the National Airline, Atlantic Airways.

“This project is an exciting opportunity to bring the first ever internationally-branded hotel to the Faroe Islands,” said Niels Mortensen, Chairman of P/F Hotel Atlantic.

“Working with a prestigious partner and renowned brand such as Hilton provides a fantastic platform to showcase Torshavn as a flourishing business and leisure destination for global travellers.”

The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago that is part of the Kingdom of Denmark. It is situated between Iceland and Norway and known for its volcanic landscapes and rare wildlife.
