Ramada Worldwide, which has nearly 900 properties around the globe has announced two new hotels in China: the world’s largest Ramada hotel, the 1000-room Ramada Hotel & Suites Boao in the Hainan province, and the 548-room Ramada Huangshan in the Anhui province.
Currently under development on Hainan Island just off the south coast of mainland China, the 24-story Ramada Hotel & Suites property is expected to open in December 2010.
The hotel is being developed by Hainan Baolian City (Boao) Company, a subsidiary of the Shanghai Baolian Real Estate Company, which is also developing the 337-room Shanghai Wyndham Baolian.
The hotel will feature oversized rooms and suites, three full-service restaurants, a lobby bar, 1,150 square meters of meeting space (definitely a MICE hotel), a swimming pool, gym and other recreational facilities.
The hotel is part of a larger plan by the developer to transform more than two square kilometers of the city’s ocean front real-estate into an upscale resort destination.
Marketwire reports the second hotel is owned and operated by Huangshan Xinhui Investment. Ramada Huangshan hotel is the Ramada brand’s first hotel in the Anhui province.
Again, this is very much a MICE hotel and all guest rooms and suites will feature 26″ flat-screen televisions and free high-speed Internet access.
