ZURICH, Switzerland—Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced the signing of two new hotels in China and Thailand including a new beach resort in Hua Hin, Thailand, and a 250-rooom hotel in Enshi City, China.
“The Mövenpick Hotel Enshi will be our first opening in China, marking an important milestone for our company. Chinese consumers regard Swiss products and services as refreshingly different and we are looking forward to leveraging our Swiss roots and culinary legacy to carve a unique niche in this fascinating country,” said Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East, and Asia.
The new 14-story, five-star Mövenpick Hotel Enshi is set to open this summer will feature two restaurants, a bar, a club lounge, 515-square-meter ballroom, eight meeting rooms, a pool, spa and a fitness center.
Within three years, the company will also be operating eight hotels in Thailand including the 190-room Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Hua Hin. The design of the new hotel will take its inspiration from the Thai beach resort atmosphere and offer landscaped gardens, two restaurants, a lobby lounge, ballroom, pool, spa, and function rooms.
The two new signings are in line with the global strategy of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts to open 100 hotels across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia by 2015, evenly allocating around 25 properties to each region.
“These are exciting times for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in Asia and we look forward to building on our reputation for quality, reliability and care with a personal touch throughout the region,” added Mattmüller.
