Since its inception in 2014, AHG has opened two hotels, in Beijing and Taipei last year. This year, the group is set to open a total of four hotels across Asia Pacific, three of which will be in China — Artyzen Habitat Hongqiao Shanghai, citizenM Hongqiao Shanghai and Artyzen Sifang Nanjing and the fourth will be citizenM City Centre Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
AHG will potentially add six more hotels in Shanghai over the next three years, entrenching its foothold in this key city. AHG’s future growth strategy will continue to focus on establishing brand presence in strategic gateway cities in Asia Pacific including Beijing, Singapore and Jakarta.
Based in China, Michael will oversee AHG’s business in China and lead the team in driving its strategic growth in this market. AHG will expand its current presence in Beijing and Shanghai and grow its brand footprint in key cities across China. It has plans to introduce its full portfolio of distinctive experience-led brands — Zitan, Artyzen Hotels & Resorts, Artyzen Habitat and citizenM in this growth market.
“I am excited to be part of the Artyzen Hospitality team in China as it starts to escalate its growth strategy in this dynamic market. Artyzen’s entry is timely as the market further opens up great opportunities for hospitality products that go beyond the traditional concepts. AHG’s brands are well-positioned to capture new market segments and will set some new trends in China,” said Michael Wu, Head of China, Artyzen Hospitality Group.
Artyzen Hospitality Group is a subsidiary of Shun Tak Holdings Ltd, a listed company in HKSE. It is expanding its portfolio of hotels across Asia Pacific.
