StayWell Holdings, a subsidiary of Prince Hotels, has solidified its expansion plans for the recently revealed The Prince Akatoki brand, announcing the group’s second international property is set to open in Guangzhou, China, in 2019.
The news follows the unveiling of plans for a property in London earlier this month.
Located within the government development precinct of Bio-Island and within the Pearl River Delta area, The Prince Akatoki in Guangzhou is set among the hustle and bustle of China’s biggest economic hub.
Just two subway stops to Guangzhou International Convention & Exhibition Centre and less than ten kilometres from University City, which accommodates 23,000 students, the hotel provides significant opportunity to attract local and international business travellers.
Featuring 275 luxurious rooms, the property will align with The Prince Akatoki’s five-star luxury offering – from the guest facilities on offer, through to the refined finishes, exclusive location and spectacular views.
Masahiko Koyama, president of Prince Hotels, said he could not be more excited to bring the best of Japan to one of China’s most thriving cities, Guangzhou, with the new The Prince Akatoki property opening.
“Together with StayWell Holdings, we look forward to transforming Prince Hotels from a Japanese-exclusive brand to a global brand, starting with London, and now Guangzhou, offering guests a luxury five-star Japanese hospitality experience regardless of where they are travelling,” Koyama added.
