Starwood expands with Shenzhen resort

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will manage the Sheraton Dameisha Resort in Shenzhen, China, when it opens in early 2008. The newly built property will be the group’s third hotel in Shenzhen, adding to the Four Points by Sheraton Shenzhen and the Sheraton Shenzhen Hotel, currently under development. Both hotels are located in Futien district, reputed to be the new central business district. The Sheraton Dameisha Resort will feature 402 bedrooms, more than 16,000sq ft of meeting space, three f&b outlets, a health club and spa, an indoor swimming pool and retail shops. It will be located at Dameisha Beach, approximately 24km from downtown Shenzhen. Once opened, the resort will be the first five-star internationally branded hotel located in Dameisha. “The Sheraton Dameisha Resort in Shenzhen will be a significant addition to the Sheraton brand,” said Starwood Hotels & Resorts for Asia Pacific president Miguel Ko. “Shenzhen, the southern gateway to mainland China, has always been known more for its export and industrial base than as a leisure destination, and we believe that with the opening of this fabulous resort, visitors will have another great leisure destination in southern China.” Starwood Hotels & Resorts expanded its portfolio in China significantly in 2005, with 18 hotels under development, from Xiamen to Beijing. The hotel group now operates 24 hotels in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
