Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Wednesday, 5 June 2013

Hiltons expansion of its luxury brands - Waldorf Astoria and Conrad - in Asia Pacific currently comprises sixteen new properties in the pipeline.

 With twelve new Waldorf Astoria branded properties in its global pipeline, Hilton Worldwide will open five of these in Asia Pacific by 2017, adding to its current flagship property in the region, the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund. Four of the new Asia Pacific properties will be in China, namely, Beijing, Chengdu and Hainan (two properties).

Following the recent opening of Conrad Beijing in March 2013, Conrad is also stepping up its momentum with thirteen new properties in the global pipeline from now until 2020. Of these, eleven will be in Asia Pacific. This includes seven new hotels in urban cities and resort locations across China, a move which will significantly augment Conrads footprint in the mainland.

 It has been well known that Asia Pacific is driving the demand for luxury and Chinese consumers now account for half of all luxury purchases in the region. To date, Hilton Worldwide has thirteen Waldorf Astoria and Conrad properties in Asia Pacific and our expansion plans mirror luxury consumption patterns in the region, said John Vanderslice, global head of Luxury & Lifestyle Brands, Hilton Worldwide. China will be central to our growth strategy and we will also be looking to introduce both brands to new markets. More than just having a roster of hotels at impressive locations, we are extremely conscious of our respective brand missions which include delivering a singular experience in extraordinary places for Waldorf Astoria and offering the Luxury of Being Yourself for Conrad.
