(11 Feb 2021) Banyan Tree has an exciting year planned, with eight hotels scheduled to open by year-end.

The company signed 20 hotel management agreements in 2020, adding to its already impressive pipeline of 35 properties slated to open within the next 3 years.

This year, Banyan Tree will be entering new forays in 3 regions across 8 destinations globally. In addition to openings in Asia (Cambodia, Indonesia and China), the group will fly its first flags in the Middle East (Qatar), Europe (Greece) and Africa (Mozambique).

Q3 2021: Asia (China) – Banyan Tree Nanjing Garden Expo

Banyan Tree Nanjing Garden Expo, the first Banyan Tree resort in Tangshan of Jiangsu province, China, will open in Q3 2021.

Known for its hot springs and as a part of Nanjing – the 2,500-year capital of six dynasties, the resort is built in a mine valley, hidden by a cascading cliff-top waterfall.

Positioned to be a leading hot spring and wellbeing sanctuary, it will feature 115 rooms with scenic valley and cliff views each with a hot spring pool, a Banyan Tree Spa, an indoor swimming pool with panoramic views and three dining venues that support local ingredients. In addition, the resort will comprise modern meeting and wedding facilities for social events.

Located in the heart of Mushaireb, the resort sits within the Doha Oasis project, a premier city destination comprising a luxury department store, an indoor experiential theme park and a cineplex.

The 341-key property is in close proximity to the capital’s commercial district and cultural attractions, such as the Museum of Islamic Art and Souq Waqif “standing market”.

It will feature the signature Banyan Tree Spa with a Rainforest hydrotherapy facility, Saffron fine-dining Thai restaurant and Vertigo, a 28-storey rooftop bar overlooking Doha’s panoramic city skyline.

Opening in October 2021 and inspired by the rich culture of the ancient Khmer Empire, Angsana Siem Reap, Cambodia will feature tropical gardens, reflective ponds and contemporary design blending classic Khmer style.

The resort offers 158 keys including 19 villas with private pools, innovative restaurant concepts, and modern event spaces.

A 10-minute drive from Siem Reap International Airport, it is situated near to Cambodia Cultural Villa and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre including Angkor Wat, an important archaeological site in Southeast Asia.

December 2021: Africa (Mozambique) – Banyan Tree Ilha Caldeira

The group’s very first flag in the Africa continent, Banyan Tree Ilha Caldeira in Mozambique (situated on the private Island of Ilha Caldeira), is set to open in December 2021.

Amidst pristine beach and reefs, the luxury resort will feature 40 private pool villas with views of the Indian Ocean, signature Thai restaurant Saffron and Banyan Tree Spa.

Located 10km off the mainland, the island is part of Primeiras and Segundas Archipelago, Africa’s largest marine reserve – home to Mozambique’s intact living corals.

Mr Ho Kwon Ping, Executive Chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings, said, “Our robust momentum in business development and pipeline of new openings this year will continue to accelerate Banyan Tree Group’s international presence as we chart and connect guests to new awe-inspiring destinations. As a global independent hospitality company, we remain positive and resilient. As an evolving multi-branded ecosystem with Wellbeing and Sustainability at our core, we set our eyes on the global front to strategically grow our brands to global reach and range, amidst the extended travel recovery.”
