Okura to open third spa hotel in Taiwan as part of Asian expansion

Japan-based Okura Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to open its third spa hotel on the island of Taiwan.

The company has signed a deal to operate the Okura Prestige Taichung, set to open in 2021, through its subsidiary Okura Nikko Hotel Management.

Situated in the heart of Taichung, the 250-bedroom hotel will include a luxury spa, indoor swimming pool and health club – as well as a range of restaurants. Exact details of the design team and spa and wellness amenities will be confirmed closer to the opening date.

The new opening is part of Okura’s plans to expand in the the booming Asia Pacific tourism market.

The group wants to expand its global portfolio to 100 properties – located primarily around the Asian region – by 2020.

As well as the new Taichung property, the group has eight properties planned in other Asian metropolises. These include five Okura Hotels & Resorts properties opening in Cappadocia (Turkey) in 2018, followed by Manila (the Philippines), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Phnom Penh and Yangon (both in Myanmar) in 2020.

Two Nikko Hotels International properties will also open in Bangkok (Thailand) in 2018 and Hai Phong (Vietnam) in 2020.

Toshihiro Ogita, president of Okura, said: “The plan to open in Taichung reflects our strategy to expand business, particularly in Asia, where rapid market growth is taking place.

“The opening of The Okura Prestige Taichung will play a key role in maximizing Hotel Okura’s brand recognition in the region.”
