With a view to tap China’s extensive tourism potential, Anantara Vacation Club, an off-shoot of Thailand-based Minor International, is evolving steps to give shape to a hotel asset portfolio in China.
Anantara Vacation Club is expected to make more investment in China in 2016, according to chief operator officer, Martin Tolan.
Sanya in Hainan province, Guilin in Guangxi and Lijiang in Yunnan are the locations that are targeted by the company, Tolan said, adding there was a huge scope for the Shanghai market with the opening of a theme park by Disney.
Working in a time-shared holiday ownership concept, Anantara Vacation Club, which came into being six years ago, offers its members stays at various destinations spread across Asia and all over the world.
In addition to the resorts that it owns in Bangkok, Koh Samui and Phuket (all in Thailand), Bali (Indonesia), Sanya (China) and the one in New Zealand, Anantara Vacation Club plans to open a resort in Chiang Mai in Thailand soon.
