Anantara Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to diversify its portfolio in China by launching the first luxury global hotel brand in the Qingyang district of Chengdu.
Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel will form part of the integrated Essence Chengdu project, developed by Chengdu Tai Hang Rui Hong Real Estate.
Building upon Anantara’s existing portfolio in China, comprising Anantara Sanya Resort’s beachfront luxury on Hainan Island, Anantara Xishuangbanna Resort’s wild natural beauty in Yunnan, and Anantara Guiyang Resort located in the breath-taking natural surroundings in Guizhou Province, the new Anantara will expand the brand’s presence in an exciting new destination.
Located in Chengdu’s western Qingyang district, Essence Chengdu will cover a 200-hectare site of five plots.
Phase one will consist of mid-tier and high-end serviced apartments, town houses, high-end residential villas and the 150-key Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel which will open as the only ultra-luxury resort hotel in Chengdu, fronting the project’s 47-hectare eco-wetland park to provide an urban oasis with far greater privacy and outdoor space compared to other central city hotels.
Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel is to feature 150 guestrooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant and specialty restaurant, lobby lounge and bar/tea lounge, a gym and fitness facilities, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a spa, children’s club, additional recreational and leisure facilities, along with banqueting and meeting facilities.
Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan Province, serving as the economic, commercial, financial, transportation and communication centre of Southwest China.
Dillip Rajakarier, chief executive of Minor Hotels (owner of Anantara Hotels & Resorts) commented: “We are excited to announce the first Anantara in Chengdu, China in partnership with Chengdu Tai Hang Rui Hong Real Estate.
“This addition to our portfolio demonstrates our commitment to growth in up and coming destinations, while foreseeing and responding to demand in a way that places us firmly as a strong market leader in Asia Pacific, and beyond.”
Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel is scheduled to open in 2021.
