Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts to Open Hotel in Changsha, China

ZURICH—The international hotel group Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts continues to expand its portfolio in China with plans for a property in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province and the transportation hub in southcentral China. Swissôtel Changsha will be part of a mixed-use development featuring a Grade A office tower, and it is scheduled to open in 2014.

Swissôtel Changsha will offer 400 rooms and suites with a minimum room size of 40 square meters, five restaurants and bars, over 2000 square meters of meeting and banqueting space and recreational facilities including a Pürovel Spa.

“Changsha is one of the most important economic centers in the country, and as the ‘entertainment capital of China’ it is a year-round attraction for visitors,” says Meinhard Huck, president of Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, in an announcement. “Swissôtel Changsha is another important step in our expansion in China, where we already manage several five-star hotels, and it is significant for the growth of our brand recognition in Asia.”

Mr. Lv Dong Sheng, the Chairman of Enough Group says: “Swissôtel Changsha is our first international Five-Star hotel project in Hunan. Our goal is not only to build a global flagship property, but also to incorporate the hotel with culture industry and green industry, and to establish a new standard for hotel industry in Hunan Province and in China.”


Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts’ partner for this project is Enough Sunshine Real Estate Investment, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Enough Group, which is a private high-tech enterprise focusing on commercial real estate, new and renewable energy, information technology and waste management. Enough Group is founded in 1991 and headquarters in Beijing.
