Hotel Nikko to open in Kaohsiung in 2023

15 Jan 2020 by Jackie Chen

Japanese hospitality group Okura Nikko Hotels will open a new Hotel Nikko in the Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung in 2023.

The new property, Hotel Nikko Kaohsiung, will offer 260 guestrooms. Each room is about 36 sqm. The new hotel will also open several restaurants featuring Japanese cuisine, Chinese cuisine, all-day dining, and a rooftop bar perched on the 21st floor overlooking the Kaohsiung Harbour.

“We are very pleased to be opening our fourth hotel in Taiwan. We will be expanding our network with a particular focus on Asia, and Taiwan is a fast-developing market and a strategic destination for us. We hope to further raise awareness of our Okura Nikko Hotels brand in Taiwan,” said Marcel P. van Aelst, CEO of Okura Nikko Hotel Management.

Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second largest city, with an international harbour located on the busy shipping lanes between Northeast Asia and the South Pacific. The Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre, which opened in 2014 on the waterfront of Kaohsiung Harbour, is a multifunction venue for exhibitions, conferences, meetings and events.

The hotel group said it takes about 90 minutes by Taiwan High Speed Rail to reach Taipei from Kaohsiung. Kaohsiung International Airport offers flights to over 38 destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.

The group added that this new hotel is part of its undertaking to expand its global portfolio to 100 properties “primarily in Asia” by 2020.

The company has partnered with Fanlu Construction Industry to manage the new property with the support of investment from Daiwa House Industry and Continental Development Corporation.

Hotel Okura was founded in 1958 and opened its flagship Hotel Okura Tokyo in 1962. Okura Nikko Hotel is a subsidiary of Hotel Okura. It operates 74 properties (49 in Japan and 25 overseas) encompassing about 23,207 guest rooms (as of January 1, 2020) under three hotel groups: Okura Hotels & Resorts, Nikko Hotels International and Hotel Jal City.
