The Asia Pacific region is ready to surge with Sofitels, so we hear. Word on the street is three new management contracts have been signed in Wellington, New Zealand; Bali, Indonesia; and Shenyang, China. 

The Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort is scheduled to open in September 2013, with 415 rooms including 17 private villas. The hotel will also have a ballroom, five meeting rooms, three restaurants, a bar and lounge and wellness facilities. Guests will be able to relax in the infinity pool, workout at the SoFIT fitness center and unwind at SoSPA.

Sofitel Wellington, slated to open in 2014, will be the third Sofitel in New Zealand. This city hotel rubs elbows with some of the capital's hottest shops, restaurants and bars. The Sofitel Wellington will have a ground-floor restaurant serving up local produce and wines from the surrounding Hawkes Bay, Malborough and Martinborough regions. There will also be a fitness center and indoor pool.
