Taipei Taiwan Intercontinental Hotel
The InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a contract with Malaysian Cornerstone Partners Group for a hotel in Kimpton, Taipei. The world's leading hotel company and Taiwan's second largest hotel operator have announced a joint venture agreement to build and operate the first hotel of its kind in mainland Taiwan. Taiwan - Formosa International hotels Corporation (FIH) and Intercontinental have entered into a joint venture agreement to accelerate the development and construction of a 1,000 room hotel project in Taiwan. InterContinents "investment comes as part of a major expansion into mainland China, which is heavily focused on China's luxury hotel market in the capital, Beijing.
In the next few years, Kimpton is expected to open new hotels in Shanghai, Beijing, Sanya, Tokyo and Bali. It plans to expand the Regent brand to 2,000 rooms, 1,500 of which will be in Taipei, Taiwan and other major cities in Taiwan and mainland China, as well as Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. In the coming months and during the year, new hotels are planned to open in China's largest cities Shanghai and Beijing, as well as in the USA in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.
In the next few years, Kimpton is expected to open new hotels in Shanghai, Beijing, Sanya, Tokyo and Bali.
The hotel's restaurant and bar are also designed exclusively by Hong Kong's JIA Group, whose flagship outlets include Macao Michelin, Duddell's and Taipei's prestigious Duggard's. IHG currently operates 6 hotels under four brands in the Taiwanese market, including 5 hotels under the Kimpton brand, 3 hotels in Shanghai, Beijing, Sanya, Tokyo and Bali and one hotel in Taiwan in the pipeline. It is also well represented in China, Taiwan and South Korea, as well as in a number of other markets in Asia and Latin America, such as Japan, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
Here in Taipei, Hilton has no real estate under IHG and only one Hilton Express hotel in the city, a Tainan hotel. The resort is one of many hotels to open in February and March this year, and there are also two other hotels in Taiwan, one in Kaohsiung and the other in Taoyuan. There are also a number of hotels under other brands, such as Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott.
Mandarin Oriental is also available in Taipei, the only truly luxurious hotel that is not a business hotel. The market also has many SPG hotels, with W Tai Taiwan being the most popular, followed by Le Meridien. Although there are obviously a number of hotels in Taiwan under other brands, such as Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott and Hilton Express, this hotel situation in Taipei is interesting in terms of the quality of the hotels.
In January 2015, Kimpton became Taiwan's largest hotel group and the second largest in the world after Marriott International. The hotel groups have more than 1,000 hotels in Taipei under their brands such as Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and Hilton Express since September 2017, as well as a number of other brands.
It was a coup for the brand, and IHG desperately needed an InterContinental flagship, and the Singapore hotel was renamed Regent, which could not compete with the high-end hotels in Hong Kong and Singapore under the Hyatt and Marriott brands.
The Hyatt currently has two hotels in Taipei, one in the city centre and one on the west side of the island. Its special feature is its proximity to the Maokong Tea House, or "Taipei Zoo," which is located south of us. If you feel that your holiday is closer to nature, you can opt for the Holiday Inn East Tai Taiwan, which would be handy if you were to head to MaOKong for a sip of tea, but less for hiking.
A must-see is the Taipei 101 Observatory, where it is a truly remarkable experience to observe the magnificent night scenes that unfold over the thriving city. The observation deck on the hillside offers one of the best views, and you can see from the Hyatt Hotel to the city center and even as far as Hong Kong and Singapore.
The brand has an unparalleled heritage at the top end of the luxury segment, and its flagship Regent Hong Kong has consistently been voted the best hotel in the world since the 1980s and 1990s. The InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is the 200th hotel of the brand worldwide and IHG plans to open all eight of its hotels in China in 2018. To celebrate this milestone, the hotel will be renamed "InterContinents Hongong" for the first time in its history. Originally built in 1980, it was rebuilt in the mid-1990s as a luxury hotel with an emphasis on luxury and luxury amenities.
The hotel also has the advantage of being the only hotel directly connected to Taipei International Airport by a bridge. The most popular place to stay in Taipei is the InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland, surrounded by the most luxurious hotels, restaurants and shopping malls in the world. Traveling abroad is always a new experience, especially when you have access to one of the most exclusive and exclusive hotels in the city and the hotel shares this unique experience.
