Dubai-based hotel company, Jumeirah has been appointed by Shanghai Lixing Hotel Limited to manage one of Shanghai’s most prominent and prestigious new hotel developments in the downtown Luwan District.

Dubai-based hotel company, Jumeirah has been appointed by Shanghai Lixing Hotel Limited, a joint venture between Shanghai Hotel Investments Limited and Shui On Private Group, to manage one of Shanghai’s most prominent and prestigious new hotel developments in the downtown Luwan District.

HanTang Jumeirah Shanghai will be part of Xintiandi, the food and beverage, retail and entertainment component of a master-planned 52-hectare development in the heart of downtown Puxi, Shanghai. The hotel, designed by New York based Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects and Japanese interior design firm Super Potato, will feature 338 guestrooms, suites and villas; extensive, state-of-the-art conference and banqueting facilities, as well as a spa. The hotel is scheduled to open in mid 2008.

“We feel privileged to have been appointed by Shanghai Lixing to manage this luxury hotel in the heart of downtown Shanghai, China’s primary commercial city, and are proud to be associated with such a high profile and prestigious development,” said Gerald Lawless, CEO of Jumeirah. “The essence of Jumeirah can be expressed in two words – ‘Stay Different’ – and we believe that this hotel development represents a unique opportunity to create one of the world’s greatest and most individual hospitality experiences.”

This management agreement with Shanghai Lixing follows Jumeirah’s recent announcement of its intention to accelerate its portfolio growth, and closely follows the group’s entry into the North American market with the launch of Jumeirah Essex House in New York in January.
