The newly-announced hotels are: 

  • Waldorf Astoria Xi’an (opening 2025) which will be in one of the tallest buildings in the city
  • Waldorf Astoria Shanghai Qiantan (opening 2024) in Shanghai’s brand-new CBD – the New Bund area – with views of the Huangpu River.
  • Waldorf Astoria Kuala Lumpur (opening 2023)
  • Waldorf Astoria Sydney (opening 2023)
  • Conrad Nagoya (opening 2026)
  • An LXR Hotels & Resorts property in Bali (opening 2023)

Clarence Tan, Hilton's senior vice president of development for Asia Pacific (APAC), said: “Hilton is Asia Pacific’s fastest growing hospitality company. Our recent signings and robust pipeline reflect the confidence that owners, developers and investors have in Hilton to capture growing demand and deliver strong returns in APAC’s most sought-after destinations.” 

Global hotel companies are making a big bet on luxury and leisure travel in the region. Marriott has also announced an ambitious plan to open nearly 100 hotels in the Asia Pacific this year, with a target of opening its 1,000th property in the region in late 2022.
