Sofitel accelerates its development with three new management contracts in Wellington (New Zealand), Bali (Indonesia), and Shenyang (China) bringing the network in the Asia Pacific region to a total of 43 properties by mid-2014.
“These three new addresses are a perfect illustration of our precise target strategy. With our unique positioning, based on our French roots and close collaboration with famous architects and designers, today we are gaining more and more interest from investors, won over by our distinction and the successful repositioning of Sofitel in the luxury hotel business,” commented Robert Gaymer-Jones, CEO of Sofitel Worldwide.
