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 Ascotts 35th property to operate in China, while the 185-unit Ascott Kuningan Jakarta is the companys eighth property to open in Indonesia. The 127-unit Citadines Michel Hamburg is Ascotts fourth serviced residence in Germany, adding to its current properties in Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt. The 117-unit Ascott Culture Village Dubai will bolster Ascotts portfolio in the GCC to 12 properties in Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Mr Lee Chee Koon, Ascotts 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, Hangzhous 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.
