WHO WE ARE

The Plateno Group was founded in 2013 in China after the 7 Days Inn hotel brand which was launched in 2005.

These operations accounted for the bulk of the revenues until 2013 when the first midscale and luxury hotels were opened.

This was followed in 2014 by the first international hotel openings in Thailand and Malaysia followed in 2015 by the first three hotel openings in Indonesia with additional contracts signed in Indonesia and Sri Lanka.

Long term growth plans include continued aggressive global and regional expansion, replicating the power and synergy of our home network in China.

Today we arepart of Jin Jiang and together are ranked as the number one hotel group in Asia and 5th globally in terms of total hotels with over 6000 hotels in over 300 destinations, a room count in excess of 640,000 across 55 countries and a loyalty club of over 80 million members.
