The Banyan Tree Group is celebrated globally for its commitment to sustainable practices in the hotel industry. This company goes above and beyond by sponsoring environmental clean-ups and educational programs in its host communities, establishing restoration zones near its properties and even donating surplus food to locals who may need it. Now, Banyan Tree Group has announced a global expansion for 2021 that includes adding 35 properties over the next 3 years.
“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,” said Ho Kwon Ping, executive chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings. “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.” The new properties span across eight destinations in three regions. The group will be adding new openings in Asia, where it already has extensive experience, along with new destinations such as Qatar in the Middle East, Greece in Europe and Mozambique in Africa.
In March, Bayan Tree Group expanded into Quzhou of Zhejiang Province, Southern China, known for being the hometown of Chinese philosopher Confucius. The property features views of the Qu River and the famous Deer Park Peninsula. Later in the year, it will open Nanjing Garden Expo in the natural hot springs-rich Tangshan of Jiangsu province.
The next stop will be Angsana Corfu in Greece, marking the company’s first property in Europe. Two Indonesian properties set in Bali will follow in May and July, one highlighting wellbeing facilities and organic farm-to-table dining and the other focusing on indoor-outdoor living with a “no walls, no doors” concept.
In Q4, October and December, Banyan Tree will debut its new luxury properties in Qatar, Cambodia and Mozambique. Each will feature its own unique character, with the Mozambique property located near Africa’s largest marine reserve.
