IHG, China Duty Free Group to develop two new luxury hotels in Hainan

IHG currently operates 12 hotels in Hainan and 17 under development.

IHG Hotels & Resorts and luxury goods operator China Duty Free Group have joined forces to develop two new luxury and lifestyle hotels in Hainan, China.

Located nearby Sanya International Duty-Free Shopping Complex, the two properties are Regent Sanya Haitang Bay and Hotel Indigo Sanya Haitang Bay.

The hotels are slated to open to open in 2026.

IHG Greater China managing director Daniel Aylmer said: “The Hainan Free Trade Port enjoys unique geographical advantages that make it a key platform for promoting China’s ‘dual circulation’ strategy and taking Reform and Opening Up to new heights.

“IHG sees bright prospects in Hainan and hopes to harness consumption trends in the region. By joining forces with a strong partner like China Duty Free Group, we hope to tap both international and domestic consumption, capitalise on regional strengths, and further grow our geographical footprint.

“The addition of the Regent and Hotel Indigo properties will create a more immersive stay experience for a new generation of travellers.”

Besides these two hotels, IHG operates 12 hotels in Hainan and 17 under development.
