Swissotel Hotels & Resorts has opened its fourth hotel in China. The luxury Swissotel Foshan is located in Foshan in Guangdong Province, its first in the city.Its amenities and services cater for business travellers and tourists alike. The Zumiao Commercial District and the Fenjiang Financial District are in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, and the cities of Guangzhou and Shunde are only a short drive away.

“We are very proud to complement our Chinese portfolio with a fourth hotel, in a market which is so important to us”, says Meinhard Huck, President Swissotel Hotels & Resorts.

The hotel is 208 metres tall, which makes it the highest building in Foshan and the 234 hotel rooms and suites are located on the top 15 floors. Each room has modern interior design and state-of-the-art facilities, such as a plasma TV, high-speed internet, and a spacious work area.

Guests have a choice of four first class restaurants and bars: The Café Swiss on the 49th floor offers à la carte dining and international buffets, the Italian restaurant Cielo 51 and Bar 51 on the 51st floor have breathtaking panoramic views. “The Flow” lobby lounge serves sandwiches and cocktails and the Swiss gourmet shop offers Swiss products and oven-fresh pastries.

For their well-being, hotel guests may relax in the sauna, steam bath and swimming pool in the hotel’s spa and fitness centre or unwind with a massage.

“Foshan and the surrounding area have a number of historical sights to offer. For example, the Zumiao Ancestral Temple built in 1078, and the Nan Feng ceramic workshops in Chancheng, which have a tradition dating back to the time of the Ming dynasty Emperor Zhengde, are well worth a visit”, says Torsten Pinter, Swissotel Foshan’s General Manager.


“Furthermore, in 2006 a new museum was built dedicated to Bruce Lee, who was born in Foshan. This will certainly attract kung fu and martial arts fans. We are looking forward to treating guests from around the globe to Swiss hospitality.”
