Continuing its expansion plans in Asia, Thailand's Onyx Hospitality Group has signed a management agreement for the Shama Hub Haikou Hainan, bringing the Shama brand to a location affectionately known as the “coconut city of China.”

Strategically located within the newly developed West Coast of Haikou, the capital of Hainan (China’s southernmost province), Shama Hub Haikou will be close to the municipal government building, with easy access to the Haikou Free Trade Zone and Hainan International Convention and Exhibition Centre. 
Slated to open in the third quarter of 2020, Shama Hub Haikou will be part of one of the tallest complexes in the area, with more than 100 serviced apartments in various configurations.
