Six New Hilton Luxury Hotels in Asia Pacific

Hilton has revealed six landmark signings in Asia Pacific (APAC) across its portfolio of luxury brands. That includes Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts and LXR Hotels & Resorts.

With the signing of Waldorf Astoria Xi’an, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai Qiantan, Waldorf Astoria Kuala Lumpur, Waldorf Astoria Sydney, Conrad Nagoya and an LXR Hotels & Resorts property in Bali, Hilton’s pipeline of luxury hotels in the region increases to 20.

When these hotels open in the coming years, travelers will enjoy an exquisite portfolio of more than 50 luxury hotels across Asia Pacific.

Clarence Tan, senior vice president, Development, Asia Pacific, Hilton 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.”

Hilton’s latest signings mark a further closing of key city gaps as its luxury brands debut or expand in popular travel destinations such as Japan, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia and China.

China in particular holds great potential in shaping the future of luxury travel as it is home to the world’s largest consumer economy and is set to become the largest luxury goods market by 2025 . Travel demand is also shifting as the country’s new generation of young and discerning travelers seeks higher levels of personalization, wellbeing, sustainability and quality in their luxury travel experience. The signings of Waldorf Astoria in Xi’an and Shanghai Qiantan put the brand on track to double its portfolio in China and offer luxurious amenities in eight world-class hotels.

Entries into New Markets

Set to open in 2024, Waldorf Astoria Kuala Lumpur and Waldorf Astoria Jakarta – set to be the city’s tallest building – will mark the entry of the iconic Waldorf Astoria brand into Malaysia and Indonesia. A year later, Japan will welcome the country’s first Waldorf Astoria hotel in Osaka. In 2026, Hilton will introduce this premier luxury brand to Australia and Sydney’s iconic Circular Quay with Waldorf Astoria Sydney. Waldorf Astoria will more than double in presence in Asia Pacific over the next 5 years.

Conrad Kuala Lumpur, slated to open next year, will mark the brand’s debut in Malaysia, while Nagoya, the manufacturing and craftsmanship capital of Japan, will welcome the opening of its first Conrad hotel (Conrad Nagoya) in 2026. Today, almost 60% of the global Conrad estate is in Asia Pacific. The brand commands the largest share in Hilton’s APAC luxury portfolio and will grow by almost 50% when hotels in its pipeline open.

Set to open as the first LXR-branded resort in South East Asia in 2023, the 72 all-villa resort in Bali, Indonesia will join a collection of unique, independent luxury properties around the world, which includes the recently opened and award-winning ROKU KYOTO, LXR Hotels & Resorts in Japan.
