Cosmos Hotel & Resorts Group (天成飯店集團) has stood by its expansion plans in an increasingly competitive market by launching a new facility in Taichung to capitalize on tourism demand in central Taiwan.
ICASA (回行旅), the second property under the group’s Cosmos Creation (天成文旅) brand, offers 100 rooms, the group’s assistant marketing director, Blythe Chao (趙芝綺), said in an interview on Wednesday.
“Despite intensifying competition, the group pressed ahead expansion plans and is upbeat about a 70 percent occupancy for ICASA in the first year,” Chao said.
The group, which operates six hotels and one independent restaurant in Taiwan, plans to add a third Cosmos Creation outlet in Taipei and a luxury resort hotel in Hualien’s Ruisui Township (瑞穗) this year, while expanding villa facilities at Yaward Resort Taoyuan (悅華大酒店), she said. [FULL STORY]
