A lot of new hotels in Asia

The GHM site is now updated and I saw a few new names:
The Sawana, Kuala Lumpur
The Club at the Leela, Goa
The Nam Hai, Hoi An (opens end 2006)
Carcosa Seri Negara, Kuala Lumpur(not quite a new hotel but GHM took it over)
The Chedi, Chiang Mai (not new to me but it is a new property)
take a look on www.ghmhotels.com for more information. The new site looks a lot better.

Also, Park Hyatt will open two hotels in the near future:
The Park Hyatt, Seoul
The Park Hyatt, Saigon (opening mid 2005)

A lot of exciting openings...

Yes, I'm looking forward to reports on the many new places opening. My experience is that anticipated opening dates in Asia often end up being unrealistic. Indeed, I've seen dates slide by a year!

Talking about new hotels, I was just back from Taipei tonight and would love to introduce a recently built hotel which I stayed and found very satisfyin - Les Suites Taipei. The group is a member of the Small and Luxury Hotel Chain and has two hotels in Taipei. Go have a look at their website - http://www.suitetpe.com.tw/english/index.php

Hey Guys
Any info on The Chedi - Chiang Mai? Having a tough time deciding between the FS Chiang Mai and The Chedi. Anyone know if the The Chedi is a Tower type hotel or a FS type Resort? Didn't see any exteriors of the hotel on the GHM website so not quite sure.
Any help would be much appreciated...

The Chedi hotels are probably in FS style, resort style. The GHM hotels are usually not towers, with the exception of the Setai in Miami. Anyway if I were you, I'd definitely opt for the FS, they have perfect service and the service in brand new hotels is usually not at their best. I absolutely love the Four Seasons in Chiang Mai
