Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside opens to guests

Opening now in the historic yet vibrant city of Tianjin, Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside sets a significant milestone as Banyan Tree’s first luxury hotel in northern China and the group’s tenth property in the country.

Building on the group’s unique urban resort concept, the property combines luxurious resort amenities and experiences with metropolitan living.

Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside, located on the east bank of the Hai River and overlooking the urban cityscape, provides easy access to Tianjin’s historical and cultural heritage sites.

Staying true to the values of rejuvenation and modern Asian hospitality, the urban resort inspires guests with a new perspective of the vibrant port-side metropolis, through its rich history.

Tianjin, which means “the place where the emperor crossed the river,” allows travellers to journey back in time by following the footsteps of influential Chinese intellectuals and revolutionary figures that contributed to the city’s unique heritage.

Located in the former Austrian concession district, the resort is adjacent to the Italian part of the city, a picturesque region of European-style villas, historic bridges, and churches.

Guests may enjoy leisurely strolls along the many vibrant thoroughfares and waterfront, such as Hai River Promenade and Italian Street, to experience an exotic journey in Tianjin’s urban centre. Additionally, the Mazu Temples built in the Yuan Dynasty add a sense of awe and wonder to every guest’s journey.

Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside blends local history and culture into its interior design.

The 159 elegant rooms draw inspiration from the muted tones and refined aesthetic of traditional Chinese ink paintings, and embody the intrinsic charms of the Orient.

Each guest room is designed to be a tranquil haven for rest and relaxation, artfully crafted with richly-textured materials and tastefully accentuated with intricate furnishing and finishes, including a sizable “Relaxation Tub” for guests to enjoy a delightful soak.

A variety of room types are available, including the signature Deluxe Riverside Retreat, Premier Riverside Retreat, and Banyan Tree Suite, most of which feature large French windows overlooking the river.
