Ascott has opened its first serviced residences
in Hangzhou, China and Hamburg, Germany.
The company has also opened its second
Ascott-branded serviced residence in Jakarta, Indonesia and
secured a management contract for its second Ascott-branded
serviced residence in Dubai which is slated to open in 2017.
The 104-unit Citadines Intime City Hangzhou is
Ascott’s 35th property to operate in China, while the
185-unit Ascott Kuningan Jakarta is the company’s eighth property
to open in Indonesia. The 127-unit Citadines Michel Hamburg
is Ascott’s fourth serviced residence in Germany, adding to its
current properties in Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt. The 117-unit
Ascott Culture Village Dubai will bolster Ascott’s portfolio in
the GCC to 12 properties in Bahrain,
Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Chee Koon, Ascott’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “There are
significant growth opportunities for serviced residences globally.
We have opened two new properties in China and Germany which are
key growth markets for Ascott. Indonesia and GCC also offer
immense potential for serviced residences. As the capital city of
Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou’s foreign direct investment grew by an
average of more than 9% annually in the last five years. Hangzhou
also attracted more than 90 million business and leisure
travellers in 2013. Having our first property in the city will
enable us to capture the demand as we also prepare to open Ascott
Raffles City Hangzhou in 2017.”
