Ramada Worldwide today announced its continued expansion with two new hotels in China: the world’s largest Ramada hotel, the 1,000-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 upscale, 24-story Ramada Hotel & Suites property is expected to open in December 2010. The all-new construction hotel is being developed by Hainan Baolian City (Boao) Company Ltd., a subsidiary of the Shanghai Baolian Real Estate Company, Ltd., which is also developing the 337-room Shanghai Wyndham Baolian.
The all new construction hotel will feature oversized rooms and suites, three full-service restaurants, a lobby bar, 1,150 square meters of meeting space, 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 oceanfront real-estate into an upscale resort destination that will feature multiple retail and entertainment spaces.
Owned and operated by Huangshan Xinhui Investment Co., Ltd., the newly constructed eight-story Ramada Huangshan hotel is the Ramada brand’s first hotel in the Anhui province. Located on the south bank of the Xin’an River, an area famous for the Yellow Mountains and other natural wonders, the property will feature oversized rooms and suites; a multi-lingual staff that is fluent in English, Japanese and Cantonese; a full-service restaurant specializing in Western cuisine; meeting and conference facilities capable of accommodating up to 600 guests; a fitness center and express check-out. All guest rooms and suites will feature 26” flat-screen TVs and free high-speed Internet access.
