Cristal Hotels and Resorts to open eight hotels in China

ABU DHABI - Cristal Hotels and Resorts, one of the fastest-growing hotel chains in the region, has announced plans to open up eight new hotels in China as part of an Asian expansion programme that will extensively explore market opportunities in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Mainland China. Cristal Hotels has already confirmed plans to expand in Qatar and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, particularly into Riyadh, Jeddah, Khobar and Mecca. Its hotel in Abu Dhabi opened less than a year ago. "Regardless of the state of the economy global companies will still need to send their key people abroad, thus the resilience of our sector despite the downturn," said Peter Blackburn, CEO, Cristal Hotels and Resorts. "We want to take advantage of this steady flow of business and establish a strong presence in the emerging markets of Asia as part of our overall Middle East & Asia growth strategy. We also want to maintain our reputation for upholding the highest levels of quality and excellence, and events such as ALTM enable us to achieve this end," The company has made a name for itself as a leading business hotel brand in Abu Dhabi since launching its local branch at the heart of the UAE capital's business district in 2009. Cristal Hotel Abu Dhabi features 192 rooms and suites, food and beverage outlets, a business centre and meeting rooms, underground parking, and leisure and lifestyle amenities such as an indoor pool, a sauna and a beauty salon.
