Travel News Asia 23 May 2005

Kempinski Hotels has signed two new contracts in China. Kempinski will open the Kempinski Hotel Qingdao in the Shandong Province and the Kempinski Hotel Changchun in the Jilin Province during 2007.

The Kempinski Hotel Qingdao is due to open in early 2007 and will feature 400 rooms, a variety of restaurants, including the famous Paulaner Bruhaus, and 20,000m2 of offices. Qingdao is a beautiful seaside city, well known as a summer and health resort, on the southern coast of the Shandong Peninsula bordering the Yellow Sea and Jiaozhou Bay.

Qingdao is well known within China and internationally for its scenic old town and coastal attractions, featuring German style architecture from over 100 years ago. The hotel is close to the new and expanded exhibition centre in the Laoshan district of Qingdao as well as the district government hall. 

Opening in mid-2007, the Kempinski Hotel Changchun will feature 400 rooms, a variety of restaurants, such as a Paulaner Bruhaus and a restaurant specialising in traditional Tan cuisine, and 5,000m2 of shopping and boutiques. The hotel is located in the centre of this very green and wooded city, close to the railway station and is well situated for transfers to the new airport, which will open late 2005.

Changchun has earned the title of Spring City of northern China and is the capital of Jilin Province, situated at the heart of the Song Liao plains. Changchun is also home to the car manufacturing plants of Audi and Volkswagen and is historically the first film production base in China. The famous Changchun Film Studio was established in 1945 and is now one of the largest film studios in China. Visitors to the city can also enjoy the annual China Changchun International Sculpture symposium, which unites works from 230 artists from more than 80 countries and 20 domestic provinces.

The hotel group currently has hotels open in Beijing, Shenyang and Chengdu, as well as 41 Hengshan Road, a prestigious apartment complex in Shanghai. New hotels are due to open in Dalian, Shenzhen and Urumqi during 2005.

Other signed hotels in China include those in Wuxi, Yinchuan and Sanya. Kempinski has ambitious plans to have twenty hotels in China by 2008.
