Amari eyes two new resorts in China by 2016

Onyx Hospitality Group will open two Amari resorts in China by 2016. Amari Huidong in Guangdong and Amari Dali in Yunnan will both offer resort style accommodation in key destinations in China.

The new contracts represent steps for Onyx’s growth strategy and its goal to become one of Asia’s leading hospitality providers by 2018. In 2010, Onyx set a goal to increase its portfolio of operating properties to 51. By the end of 2013, the group will have 36 operational properties with an additional 13 contracts signed for the future.

Located just east of Huizhou, Amari Huidong is within the Xun Liao Bay Resort Area, which occupies a .7 mile stretch of coastline and the property boasts access to a private beach. A popular resort destination, Huidong is within easy reach of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, offering a welcome weekend retreat to city dwellers. The resort property will have 150 rooms, two restaurants, a lobby and poolside bar, a function room, meeting rooms and a Breeze Spa, and is scheduled to open in 2016.
