Anantara Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to diversify its portfolio in China by launching the Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel. This will be the first luxury global hotel brand in the Qingyang District of Chengdu.
Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel will include 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.
The new hotel is part of the integrated Essence Chengdu project. Located in Chengdu’s western Qingyang district, Essence Chengdu will cover an approximately 495-acre 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 116-acre eco-wetland park.
Located along the Yangxi Western Third Ring Road in Chengdu, Essence Chengdu offers a location with multiple advantages for business and leisure guests. The mixed-use project will be a 20-minute drive from the new high-speed Chengdu West Railway Station, 50 minutes from Chengdu South Railway Station and only 30 minutes from Chengdu Railway Station. Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is a 40-minute drive and Chengdu City Centre just 30 minutes.
Anantara guests can immerse themselves in Chengdu’s history, culture, cuisine and landmarks. Chengdu is home to the breeding and research base for giant pandas, which attracts almost 100,000 visitors annually, along with a number of historical attractions. The Jinsha Historical Museum, a 10-minute drive away, displays ancient relics from an archaeological dig site. Inside the hotel, the interior design will have Jinsha archaeological design elements.
The new Anantara property will expand the brand’s portfolio in China, which includes the Anantara Sanya Resort on Hainan Island, Anantara Xishuangbanna Resort in Yunnan, and Anantara Guiyang Resort in Guizhou.
