2015 will witness a plethora of hotel openings in Asia considering the growth of the fast paced hospitality industry – and every hotel is out to compete with the rest with extraordinary amenities and personalised customer service. Fortunately, you and I know what we can expect from certain hotel chains. Coupled with the hottest locations, they are sure to satisfy even the most demanding of desires. While some have been on our radar for a while, others appeared from thin air.
This year, our globe trotters have a lot to look forward to, from luxurious hotel chains plotting their properties from Kyoto to Riyadh! Though I must tell you, hotel chains from Anantara to Hilton are openings properties prominently across Mainland China.
Luxury, class and comfort are the future of hotels, which are also the demands from travellers. Now is your chance to book these new hotels before the sheets get ruffled and the pillows go flat.
Some of the properties featured in our last year’s countdown were delayed and rescheduled for this year, they have been not included in this list.
