Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will manage a luxury hotel in Nanjing, the capital of China's Jiangsu Province, that is scheduled to open in 2022.
The Mandarin Oriental, Nanjing will be located on the Qinhuai River. The hotel will have 106 rooms and suites with views of the river and the ancient city wall. Public spaces will include three restaurants and bars, a spa, a fitness center, an indoor pool and meeting facilities.
When it opens, the property will be part of a wider mixed-use development owned by Nanjing Shengxiangyuan Property Development Co., an affiliated company of Hongkong Land, in partnership with China Merchants Group and Country Garden Group.  In addition to the hotel, the development will have retail space and residential homes. 
“We are delighted to announce this project in a Chinese city with strong historic roots which today is a vibrant centre for tourism, commerce, finance and trade as well as an important provincial capital,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental. “We look forward to collaborating with Hongkong Land and its partners to create a truly iconic property in the historic Jiangsu capital.” 
Mandarin Oriental now operates 32 hotels and seven residences in 23 countries and territories.
