The first Kimpton properties in the region will be located in prime markets in Southeast Asia and Greater China, announced at the 2017 Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP).

Kimpton CEO Mike DeFrino said: "The Asia Pacific region has always attracted travellers who are eager to discover something new and fully immerse themselves in both the destination and local culture.

"We believe our approach to heartfelt care is unparalleled and with this development milestone, look forward to welcoming those seeking a highly personal approach to boutique luxury.

Kimpton Bali, opening in 2019, will feature 50 luxurious villas and sits on the picturesque Nusa Dua coast. The new designed hotel blends with the local Balinese culture delivering guests a genuine, personalised experience that reflects the ancient culture.

Set to open in 2021, the Kimpton Shanghai Jing’an will feature 150 guest rooms and 120 villas that originally belonged to the British-American Concession. Similar to the villas, that were mostly developed between 1910 and 1930, the hotel’s common areas will be housed in a historically reserved building.

Situated in one of the most premium travel destinations in China - Haitang Bay in Sanya, Hainan Province, this 251-room, luxurious Kimpton Resort Sanya Haitang Bay has direct beach access and is scheduled to open in 2021.
