Jumeirah, the Dubai-based luxury hotel company, has been appointed by GT Land Holdings Limited to manage a luxury hotel in Guangzhou.
The Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel, Jumeirah Group’s second hotel to be signed in China, was announced at a ceremony held today in Guangzhou and attended by Mr Su Meng, President of the GT Land and Mr Gerald Lawless, Executive Chairman of the Jumeirah Group.
The 200-room, five-star luxury Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel, scheduled to open in 2011, will be located in the centre of New Pearl City Tian He District, Guangzhou’s premier and rapidly growing commercial city centre.
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. Today’s announcement is very important for Jumeirah and we are delighted to bring our STAY DIFFERENT™ promise to Guangzhou.”
