27 November 2013 - Pentahotels has been chosen by Henan Guozhiji Real Estate Development Company Limited to manage pentahotel Luohe in China's Henan Province, opening in 2016, adding to the portfolio of current pentahotels in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and 15 properties in Europe.  Pentahotel Luohe will join new China pentahotels in Guiyang and Shenyang, both opening in 2014, as the brand targets aggressive expansion in the country as part of a global growth goal of 80 pentahotels worldwide, in operation or under development by 2020.

The 224-room hotel will be located on the top floors of a 37-storey complex including offices, residences and a shopping mall.  The 180-metre-high structure is anticipated to be the tallest building in the city and create a new landmark for Luohe. 

Luohe has over 8,000 years rich history and the reputation for well-preserved traditional arts, including Shahe Melody, one of four genres of classic Chinese Opera, and the Wuyang style of folkloric painting.  Multiple historic sites include Bi'an temple which was built in the Northern Song Dynasty (960 AD-1127 AD.)  

Pentahotel Luohe will be positioned as a home base for guests to discover this colourful heritage as well as a hub for local residents to enjoy the surrounding neighbourhoods of the emerging Shaoling commercial district. 

"Given that pentahotel Luohe will be in such a visible and high-profile landmark, it is destined to become a popular local gathering place, in keeping with our brand identity as a neighbourhood lifestyle hotel,"  Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group, pentahotels' management company.

"We are very pleased to partner with such a distinctive hotel management company," says Xiuya Wang, chairman of Henan Guozhiji Real Estate Development Company Limited, owner of pentahotel Luohe.  "Based on this strong relationship, we believe that pentahotel Luohe will be a good fit with the city's changing lifestyle."

Luohe is an important transportation hub in the mid-south Henan province, accessed by major railways and roads from key cities such as Beijing and Guangzhou.  Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport in Zhengzhou, the capital of the province, is a one-hour drive from Luohe and provides daily flights to over 20 domestic cities.
