New properties being unveiled in some of the region’s most exciting destinations

Beijing, 20 Aug 2019 – Kempinski Hotels continues crafting beautiful performances across Asia, with brand-new properties being unveiled in some of the region’s most exciting new destinations. In late 2018, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore debuted in Singapore, and The Apurva Kempinski Bali arrived on Indonesia’s paradisiacal “Island of the Gods” in early 2019. This was followed by Kempinski Hotel Hangzhou in July the same year, the brand’s 19th hotel in China, heralding an era of strong growth for Kempinski Hotels in Asia. The brand is set to expand its presence here in the next few years, with new hotels in the pipeline throughout the region: Nanjing, Guangzhou, Jinan, Changchun and Haikou in China, Bangkok in Thailand and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

“For over 120 years, the Kempinski brand has been synonymous with European flair and luxury, and we have always welcomed our guests with a rare blend of sumptuous surroundings, intuitive service and uncommon attention to detail,” said Michael Henssler, Chief Operating Officer Asia, Kempinski Hotels and Member of the Management Board. “We are very pleased with the strong growth of our brand presence here in Asia, and we are now crafting a very select portfolio of hotels in the region. At Kempinski, we believe that “Small is Beautiful”, and so each Kempinski hotel has a story of its own, where we set an inimitable, elegant stage on which we host our very discerning guests.”
