China: Shama Hongqiao Shanghai, a 132-key serviced apartment development, has opened, marking the 50th property under operation for ONYX Hospitality Group.

Located in the Hongqiao Business District, Shama Hongqiao Shanghai is close to the renowned National Convention & Exhibition Centre, Hongqiao International Airport and Hongqiao Railway Station.

With 132 apartments offering a variety of layouts from studio to two-bedroom residences, all units come with high ceilings, a customised Shama Slumber bed with an extra-soft feather mattress topper, fully equipped kitchenette, ample storage space, dual laundry washer and dryer, LED TV with international channels, Wi-Fi internet access and a work desk.

The opening of Shama Hongqiao Shanghai as ONYX Hospitality Group's 50th operating property in the Asia-Pacific region marks a key milestone for the group. Following the set up of its Greater China regional headquarters in Shanghai earlier this year, ONYX Hospitality Group has made significant progress in China and received positive recognitions within the market.

At the recent 2018 AHF Asia Hotel Awards, Shama was recognised as the "Best Serviced Apartment Operator of Asia" for the sixth year. The brand's two most recent openings in Shanghai were also winners at That's 2018 Hospitality Awards, with Shama Hongqiao Shanghai named "Most Highly Anticipated New Serviced Apartment of the Year" and Shama Changfeng Shanghai named "Newly Opened Serviced Apartment of the Year". In addition, Amari was awarded the "Best Asian Style Hotel" at the 2018 Golden Pillow Awards of China Hotels.

Douglas Martell, president and CEO of ONYX Hospitality Group, said: "The Greater China region is one of our fastest growing and most important markets, and will continue to play a significant role in our ongoing expansion and quest to be one of the Asia-Pacific region's leading medium-sized hotel operators. Following the formation of our Shanghai-based Greater China team structure, ONYX Hospitality Group has successfully attracted the best talent in the business. The opening of the 50th regional property right here in China and recognition by the wide range of industry awards and recognitions is affirmation that our China growth strategy is heading in the right direction."

Based in Bangkok, ONYX Hospitality Group has a development pipeline of close to 30 new properties in markets such as Australia and China, and has set a target of having 99 hotels open by 2024.

ONYX is a patron sponsor for the inaugural Serviced Apartment Summit Asia, which is taking place in Bangkok, Thailand, on February 21 and 22 2019.
