Pan Pacific Hotels Group has signed management agreements for two forthcoming hotels in China, the PARKROYAL Chengdu and the Pan Pacific Zhuhai.
The company has agreed to manage the Xinyuan Holding Group’s new hotel, the PARKROYAL Chengdu, which is scheduled to open in 2017.
Located beside the Sha River and opposite the University of Electronic Science and Technology, the PARKROYAL Chengdu is situated within the centre of Chengdu city.
The new property is part of the Chengdu Sun Palace Project, which involves the development of a 100,000m² site into an urban complex featuring a luxury hotel, high-end residences, offices and commercial buildings.
PARKROYAL Chengdu will have 360 guestrooms featuring amenities like an all-day dining restaurant, speciality restaurant, poolside bar and restaurant, lobby bar and lounge, ballroom as well as meeting spaces.
Pan Pacific Hotels Group CEO Bernold Schroeder said that China’s global economic influence and rapidly expanding middle-class population are contributing to healthy domestic and inbound travel demands.
"It is a country that holds great importance and growth potential for the Group," Schroeder added.
"Over the past five years, we have made significant investments to grow our ‘Pan Pacific’ brand in China and are now delighted to be able to introduce our PARKROYAL brand to Chinese and international travellers in the country.
"The Group is committed to establishing itself as a steadfast and reputable international hospitality player in China and is actively seeking opportunities to extend our presence to more Chinese cities, especially to Beijing and Shanghai."
Pan Pacific Hotels has also signed a deal with Zhuhai Weilins New Materials Development to manage the Pan Pacific Zhuhai, which is scheduled to be opened in 2017.
Situated along the Hai River, the Pan Pacific Zhuhai will be in the neighbourhood of the Gongbei Business Circle and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge.
The new hotel will have 300 rooms featuring conference facilities, a Chinese restaurant, all-day dining restaurant, executive lounge, lobby bar and lounge, a swimming pool as well as a gym.
Apart from these two openings, the Pan Pacific Hotels Group is expected to add the 319-room Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin to its portfolio in August 2014.
Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin, which is located along the Hai River and part of a mixed-use development comprising residential apartments, a retail mall and office tower, offers an all-day dining restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, lobby lounge, business centre, indoor swimming pool, health club and spa, along with a selection of meeting and function spaces.
