The 250-room, five-star luxury Jumeirah Hangzhou will be in the Central Business District of Qianjiang River New Town. Hangzhou is an hour’s train journey from Shanghai and is served by Xiaoshan International Airport.
The architects Skidmore Owings and Merrill (SOM) have incorporated water terraces, bamboo groves and canals into the design of the hotel. There is a banquet and conference center and extensive retail and shopping facilities in the vicinity.
Zawya reports this brings Jumeirah’s total number of management agreements for projects in China to five: Shanghai, Guangzhou, Macau, Sanya and now Hangzhou. It also brings the total number of management agreements signed by Jumeirah globally to 35.
