Dubai-based Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by GT Land Holdings Limited to manage a 200-room, five-star hotel in Guangzhou, the Jumeriah Guangzhou Hotel, scheduled to open in 2011. The property will be Jumeriah’s second hotel in China and will feature a sky lobby and a signature Talise Wellness spa.

The Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel will possess multiple facilities, including restaurants, bars, a swimming pool and a fitness center. And, since the hotel will be located in the center of New Pearl City Tian He District, guests will also have access to a variety of luxury retail shops. In a 50-story tall tower, the Guangzhou hotel will situate in a GT Land Plaza among an office building, a shopping mall and service apartments.

“We are very pleased to have been selected as the management company for the operation of this luxury hotel,” said Gerald Lawless, executive chairman of the Jumeirah Group. “China is a fascinating country and one of the world’s fastest growing markets.”

The Jumeirah Group also has properties under development in the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Qatar, Thailand, China, Argentina, Spain, United Kingdom and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
