Developer: TIN Hotels International Group Ltd, the joint venture between General Hotel Management Ltd (GHM) – three hotels under the Chedi brand and Al Bait Sharjah under management, and van de Bunt Partners, has made a management agreement with China’s Tibet Da’ji Hotel Co. Ltd. to open a hotel in the Tibet Autonomous Region.
TIN Lhasa will be the anchor to a nearly 29,000 square-metre six-storey mixed-use development.
Peter van de Bunt, chairman of TIN Hotels, said: “TIN Hotels was created to challenge the status quo without compromising style and excellence, and to offer the lifestyle traveller a unique proposition.”
He continues, “Travel demands are changing and hotel accommodations need to stay ahead of evolving wants, be it in design, F&B offerings, cultural awareness or the larger eco-environment. It is the embrace of the holistic travel experience that TIN Hotels celebrates and we are excited to launch this with TIN Lhasa.”
The meeting spaces and function rooms will even incorporate co-working spaces so that the local community will feel invited to stay, work, and socialise at TIN.
Travellers will also be drawn to the rooftop tea-house where sipping fragrant tea is as rewarding as the stunning view of Potala Palace amidst the breathtaking landscape.
Boutique design firm Studio Affandy & Yeo whose founders were mentored by the late Jaya Ibrahim, will be in charge of the design of TIN Lhasa.
THPT Comment: Ermmm not quite what i would imagine a hotel in Tibet would look like…but maybe that’s just me!
In September 2016 when Peter and GHM launched Tin Hotels, their ambition was to expand swiftly, starting with the launch of its first hotels in Dubai and Oman, aiming to grow within the Gulf region over the course of the next few years, before reaching its target of 35 properties in 2022.
