Under the management agreement with Xinyuan Holding Group Co. Ltd, Pan Pacific Hotels Group will manage PARKROYAL Chengdu, China's first PARKROYAL hotel that is scheduled to open in 2017.
The capital of Sichuan province, Chengdu is one of the most important economic, transportation, and communication centres in Western China. It enjoys prosperity in many sectors including manufacturing, financial, automobile and information technology, attracting some of the world's Fortune 500 companies, such Intel, Sony, Toyota and Microsoft. Chengdu has also been ranked as one of the top Chinese urban centres to invest in and among the most liveable cities in the country.
PARKROYAL Chengdu will be located along the iconic Sha River and opposite the University of Electronic Science and Technology, within the oldest cultural district in Chengdu's city centre. The hotel is part of the Chengdu Sun Palace Project to develop a site of over 100,000 square metres into a large urban complex comprising a luxury hotel, high-end residences, offices and commercial buildings.

Meanwhile, the signing of a management agreement with Zhuhai Weilins New Materials Development Co. Ltd paves the way for the 2017 opening of Pan Pacific Zhuhai, the sixth "Pan Pacific" property in China.
One of China's premier tourist destinations, located on the southern coast of Guangdong province and bordering Macau, Zhuhai is famed for being a garden city with its attractive environment and surrounding landscapes. It is also a key destination for foreign capital and investment, thanks to its prime combination of location, infrastructure and port.
Pan Pacific Zhuhai will open its doors next to the bustling Gongbei Business Circle and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge, which is currently under construction. Separated from Macau by the scenic waterway of Qianshan, it will also offer a spectacular view of the vibrant Macau city. The 300-room hotel will feature conference facilities, a Chinese restaurant, all-day dining restaurant, executive lounge, lobby bar and lounge, a swimming pool and gym.
In China, Pan Pacific Hotels Group currently owns and/or manages four award-winning "Pan Pacific" hotels and serviced suites in Ningbo, Xiamen and Suzhou. This August, it will add the 319-room Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin to its portfolio.
