With all that China has to offer, it’s not strange to find yourself travelling there on more than one occasion every year, whether for business or leisure. And outside of the capital of Beijing, you can find other vibrant and lively cities that have their own charm to set them aside from the appeals of the capital city. These locations are what hotel chains are tapping into, and the Hyatt Hotels Corporation are setting their eyes on China in the coming year with at least five new properties opening in the country in 2020. While we wait for official news on the opening of the three other properties in the list, schedule a stay at these two new Hyatt properties that have recently opened their doors.
01 GRAND HYATT HEFEI
Located right in the bustling business district of Hefei Zhengwu in China’s Anhui Province, the Grand Hyatt Hefei aims to bring a whole new level of luxury to the province’s hospitality scene. The hotel is located on the top 13 floors of the China Resources building, a skyscraper that defines the skyline of the city. The hotel’s decor is inspired by the ancient Chinese poem Land of Peach Blossom, offering contemporary living in the sky that is still distinctly traditional. In the guest rooms, local Hui details are incorporated into the decor, through artworks and other points like the table lamps that resemble lanterns.
Over 340 spacious guest rooms, including 24 suites and a President Suite, are available and each room comes with floor-to-ceiling windows that afford breathtaking views over the city. Not only that, the hotel is a stone’s throw away from the city’s major attractions and just a short drive away from Hefei South High Speed Railway station, allowing guests easy access to the best the city has to offer.
But guests need not look far for creature comforts and excellent meals, as Grand Hyatt Hefei has everything the traveller needs under one roof. On the wellness front, step into the 24-hour fitness centre with it’s high-tech equipment suitable for any fitness level, or take a dip in the indoor swimming pool complete with city skyline views. Then, once you’ve worked up and appetite, the four restaurants: Jun House, The Lounge, Grand Café and Sugar Pavilion provides all sorts of cuisine, from the traditional local delicacies of Anhui to sugary and satisfying patisseries. The business traveller is also welcome to use the several meeting rooms on the property, as well as the five multifunctional event spaces that can accommodate any occasion.
