Jumeirah has expanded its portfolio of hotels in China thanks to three new management agreements.

The Jumeirah Haikou Resort will be located in an exclusive golf community on a private island in Hainan; the Jumeirah Wuhan will have a prime city centre location near to Hankou; and Jumeirah Nanjing will be located in the Hexi new business district.

Gerald Lawless, President and CEO of Jumeirah Group, said, “We are delighted to be expanding our portfolio of hotels and resorts in China, which is a significant market for Jumeirah. We are honoured to have been asked to operate these three new hotels in key cities, bringing our pipeline of new properties in China to eight, in addition to Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel in Shanghai, which has been operating successfully since 2011.”

The Jumeirah Haikou Resort will be set within an exclusive golf community on a 136 hectare private island and is expected to open in 2018. The mixed-use development will comprise a golf course designed by Tom Doak, 60 residential villas and a hotel comprising 140 guest rooms including 26 suites.

Food and beverage outlets will feature an all-day dining and Chinese specialty restaurant, lobby lounge, bar, function space, recreational facilities such as a premier leisure club lounge, kids’ club, fitness centre and Talise Spa.

Denniston International has been appointed as the project architect.

Jumeirah Wuhan will be located in a prime city centre location near to the existing Hankou business district. The project is a mixed-use development which comprises high-end office space, retail, residences, parks and a hotel. Site preparation work is ongoing and the anticipated opening date is 2020.

The property, designed by Foster and Partners, will feature 200 guest rooms including 23 suites, an all-day dining and Chinese specialty restaurant, lobby lounge, bar, function space, executive club lounge and business centre. Recreational facilities will comprise a fitness centre, Talise Spa and indoor swimming pool.

Both properties in Wuhan and Haikou are owned by subsidiaries of Yuexiu Group, a Guangzhou-based property development company.

The third property, Jumeirah Nanjing, is currently under development and expected to open in 2016. Located approximately 40 minutes’ drive from the airport and a one-hour train ride from Shanghai, Jumeirah Nanjing is set in the Hexi new business district and in close proximity to office buildings and a conference centre. The mixed-use development will comprise office and retail space, a conference centre, a 4-star hotel and the Jumeirah hotel.

Designed by architect Zaha Hadid, the 250-room hotel will include 32 suites, an all-day dining and Chinese specialty restaurant, café, lobby lounge, tea lounge, bar, junior ballroom, executive club lounge, business centre, fitness centre, Talise Spa and an indoor swimming pool.
