Regent to open four new hotels in Asia in the next three years

Regent Hotels & Resorts will open four properties in Asia in the next three years, with three new luxury properties opening in China and one in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Scheduled to open in early October 2016, Regent Chongqing will offer accommodations in the municipality and economic center of Southwest China, Chongqing. Designed for the upscale business traveler, the property will have 181 rooms and 21 suites, a business center, as well as a grand ballroom and five function/meeting spaces. The hotel will have contemporary interiors and will have an art collection including works by Korean ceramic artist Lee Eun, Taiwanese artist Donnie Pan, Yi Meng and American artist Jessica Drenk.

Regent Place Xian will open in 2017 in Xi'an, China. The hotel will have 141 rooms and 15 suites. The contemporary interiors will have ceramic pieces of art evocative of Xi'an's Terracotta warriors, as well as metalwork recalling the detailing of traditional Chinese headpieces worn during the Imperial Dynasty.
