Langham is to manage a brand new Langham Place hotel in Haining, a bustling metropolis in the Zhejiang coastal province.
The property, which is being developed by Hong Kong-based Mingly Real Estate Corporation, is scheduled to open in 2014.
Featuring 266 guest rooms and suites, Langham Place, Haining will be part of an integrated complex comprising a retail shopping centre, commercial offices and residential apartments.
Langham Hospitality Group’s Chief Executive Officer Brett Butcher, said, “Following the successful debut of the Langham Place in Hong Kong with subsequent openings in Beijing and most recently in New York City, we are well on track to grow the Langham Place brand in China and key destinations around the world.”
Langham Place, Haining will offer guests a wide variety of dining and entertainment options, including an all-day dining restaurant, a casual signature lounge and bar, and a fine-dining Chinese restaurant.
The hotel’s meeting and banqueting facilities will feature a 900 square-metre pillar-free grand ballroom, a junior ballroom of 300 square metres, and eight multi-function rooms ranging from 45 to 100 square metres. The highlight for event planners will be the generously proportioned 3,000 square-metre ceremonial hall set amidst a private landscaped Wedding Park along the city’s river.
The Chuan Spa at Langham Place, Haining will incorporate the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and wellness treatments. The spa will include six private treatment rooms and a Contemplation Lounge, as well as an indoor swimming pool and a fully equipped fitness centre.
“With three new Langham Place hotels set to open in Ningbo, Guangzhou and Xiamen this year, China is definitely one of the primary regions of expansion for the brand,” said Lo Young, regional vice president of China, Taiwan and Macau of Langham Hospitality Group. “Our new hotel in Haining will be a welcome addition to its sister hotels in Beijing, Shenzhen and Shanghai, and we look forward to playing an important role in the city’s future.”
