China boosts luxury hotel portfolio in 2013

270 new top rate hotels will be opened in China throughout 2013 according to figures by the Top Hotel Projects database, meaning China will boast more high-end hotel additions than any other  country this year.

The accolade is no mean feat in a year when over 2,500 hotels deemed “first class” or “luxury” are due to open worldwide. Across these new empires, some 547,000 new rooms are expected. Though all lthe hotel construction projects included in the list are described as 'top' hotels, there is a wide spectrum of  scale.

USA investors are going 'supersize'. One of the larger complexes planned is InterContinental's  Palazzo del Lago. This 2,200 room resort in Florida is scheduled to open in February. However, its impressive number is topped by the 2,900 room resort Hilton Hotels are working on in Hawaii.

Elsewhere in the world, more compact offerings are in the making. Spring should see the opening of a more exclusive 49 room resort by Raffles on Kanottaa, the Maldives. Mauritius has new accommodation on the way too; hotel group Oberoi is building 80 hotel suites and 80 guest villas  near Baie du Cap, a village on the south coast there. Oberoi already have a similar resort in Mauritius' Turtle Bay.

Thanks in part to China's contribution, Asia is the continent with most new “first class and luxury” hotels on the way. There are 1,058 being worked on, offering visitors 262,000 hotel rooms. Europe follows with 848 top-rated lodgings  underway - bringing 134,000 rooms. 

Though North America has just over half the number of hotel openings as Europe (451), the enormity of some projects there means it's not far behind in room numbers – with 114,000 expected. At the bottom of the table sits the Oceania region, where 30 additional hotels are expected in the next 12 months.
