Langham signs trio of hotels at Seaworld site in landmark deal


Langham Hospitality Group (LHG) will operate three properties on a single plot, for the first time, as part of Xiamen Seaworld, following a landmark management agreement with China Merchants Group (CMG).

The new-build properties, slated to open in 2025, will represent three different brands from LHG’s portfolio, spanning a trio of segments.

Flagship brand The Langham Hotels and Resorts will care to the luxury segment, Cordis Hotels and Resorts will serve the upscale market, while Ying’nFlo will be positioned in the midscale select service segment.

 The properties will join the group’s existing hotel in Xiamen, the Langham Place, and take the total number of LHG hotels in China to 20.

“We are delighted to see such strong interest in our brands, which is a testament to our success in elevating them to capitalise on the recovery in China’s hospitality sector,” said LHG Chief Executive Officer, Bob van den Oord.

“The Langham, Cordis and Ying’nFlo will serve as iconic additions to Xiamen Seaworld, a visionary complex that we are proud to be part of. They will also bolster our presence in a wonderfully vibrant city that continues to show great promise.”

The Langham, Xiamen, Seaworld, will occupy the larger of the towers, and will feature a sky lobby on the hotel’s top floor. The Langham’s Grand Ballroom will measure 880 square metres and be one of the largest private facilities of its kind in the city.

Cordis and Ying’nFlo will be located in the second of the two towers. Cordis guests will have access to The Langham’s ballroom and meeting and event facilities, while guests from The Langham will be permitted to use Cordis’s 543 square metre ballroom and 755 square metres of meeting facilities.

LHG’s first mainland China branch of Ying’nFlo will include adaptable furniture, a plethora of digital technology features and the brand’s signature House of Ying’nFlo open space, which will be the largest of its kind.
