(Anantara Guiyang Resort)

Anantara is upping the luxury quotient in the “Forest City” of Guiyang in southwest China. This is the capital of Guizhou Province, known for its subtropical climate, natural scenery, and rich culture showcased by 30 distinct ethnic groups; Anantara Guiyang Resort is the first international resort to open in the city. The five-star resort has 218 rooms, suites, and pool villas designed with traditional flourishes and amenities (like Chinese tea sets). Balconies overlook the gardens, fairways, or mountains. The crème de la crème of the accommodations are the impressive pool villas; think plunge pool, sun decks, and dining rooms with a pantry. The three-bedroom pool villa even has its own gym and massage room.

The Anantara brand is known for immersing guests in authentic cultural experiences, and the Anantara Guiyang Resort is no exception. Guests will have the opportunity to participate in master chef cooking classes and games of majiang, while the spa highlights China’s ancient healing traditions. Signature treatments will include tea-inspired therapies and an Exotic Bamboo Massage. Yoga classes are also available.
