Dubai's Jumeirah Group announces three new hotels in China
A "significant market" for the brand
As member of Dubai Holding and one of the most recognisable signature hospitality brands in the UAE, the Jumeirah Group has announced three new management agreements to operate luxury hotels and resorts across China.
First up, there is the Jumeirah Haikou Resort, set in an exclusive golf community on a private island in Hainan, often referred to as the 'Hawaii of China'. Hainan is the only non-industrialised province and only tropical island resort destination in the country. Then there is the Jumeirah Wuhan, a 'prime city centre location' near to Hankou; and finally Jumeirah Nanjing, in the Hexi new business district, set to open in 2020.
President and CEO of Jumeirah Group, Gerald Lawless, said: "We are delighted to be expanding our portfolio of hotels and resorts in China, which is a significant market for Jumeirah. Our pipeline of new properties in China is now eight, in addition to Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel in Shanghai, which has been operating successfully since 2011."
