Jumeirah to open second hotel in China

Jumeirah is to manage a new hotel in Guangzhou, China, scheduled to open 2011. The 200-room, five-star luxury Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel, will be located in the centre of New Pearl City Tian He District, Guangzhou’s premier and rapidly growing commercial city centre. Built by GT Land Holdings, the Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel will feature a sky lobby, with elegantly-appointed guest rooms, distinctive dining concepts and Jumeirah’s own luxury Talise Wellness spa - all situated on the top floors of the 50-storey GT Land Plaza, with commanding views of city-centre Guangzhou. Facilities of the Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel will also include restaurants and bars, a swimming pool and fitness centre as well as access to luxury boutiques.

“It is a great honour for us to have Jumeirah involved in our project in Guangzhou,” said Mr Su Meng, President of GT Land. “The management of the hotel by Jumeirah will greatly raise the hospitality standards in China and help people better understand the concept of luxury hotels.”

“We are very pleased to have been selected as the management company for the operation of this luxury hotel”, said Gerald Lawless, Executive Chairman of the Jumeirah Group, who has just arrived in China having signed another Jumeirah luxury resort in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. “China is a fascinating country and one of the world’s fastest growing markets.”
