Orient Express Hotels and Pansea Hotels have combined forces to create a combined company and a new brand - Pansea Orient Express Hotels.
Orient Express owns 40 hotels, restaurants, a luxury tourist train, a river cruise and properties in 17 countries are joining forces with 6 Pansea Hotels in operation or under construction in Southeast Asia.
Pansea properties are located in Luang Prabang, Laos; Rangoon, Burma; Siem Reap, Cambodia; Bali, Indonesia and Koh Samui on the Gulf of Siam in Thailand. The Pansea Hanging Gardens in Ubud, Bali, is currently under construction and scheduled to open at the beginning of next year.
The Pansea group will continue to remain under the control and management of its existing executives, Robert Molinari and Stanislas Rollin, and will retain its existing personnel. The Pansea Hotels and developments situated outside of Asia (in Tunisia and the Caribbean) will remain under the Pansea brand.
The Pansea properties in Asia, however, will now bear new names and be sold under the new banner of Pansea Orient-Express Hotels. The Pansea Puri Bali under the new arrangement becomes the Jimbaran Puri Bali, Bali, Indonesia while the Pansea property in Ubud now under construction will open as the Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali, Indonesia.
All the resorts and hotels operating under the new combined corporation will share a common tag-line - "A Pansea Orient Express Hotel."
