Hong Kong’s Cachet Hotel Group (CHG) has unveiled plans to launch its first resorts in Asia.
The company, which currently operates two hotels in Shanghai and has a large pipeline of urban projects, has now signed a dual-branded resort complex in southern China’s Guizhou province.
The new development will comprise a 182-room Cachet Resort Wanfeng Valley and a 71-room eco-friendly URBN Hotel when it opens in October 2016. Currently being developed by SenYao Real Estate Development, the resort spans more than 120 hectares of land near the city of Xingyi.
“We are proud and honoured to partner with… SenYao Real Estate Development,” said Alexander Mirza, CEO & president of CHG. “This signing underscores our commitment to fulfilling the demand for lifestyle destinations in Asia and we look forward to bringing tech-forward, innovative Cachet and URBN brands to Wanfeng Valley.”
Designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri and Chinese artist Simon Ma, the resort will feature two restaurants and lounges, a swimming pool, spa and fitness centre. It will also be located close to the Wanfeng Valley Village, which features shopping, dining and entertainment outlets.
The Guizhou resorts join CHG’s expanding pipeline of Cachet, Cachet Boutique and URBN hotels in mainland China, including locations in Chengdu, Wuhan, Kunming and Hangzhou. It is also planning to launch in Bangkok and the Mexican resort of Cabo San Lucas, and recently announced plans for its first US property in California.
