Anantara Hotels and Resorts announces new hotel in China’s Chengdu Qingyang district

Anantara Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to diversify its portfolio in China by launching the first luxury global hotel brand in the Qingyang District of Chengdu with the opening of Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel, scheduled to open in 2021 as part of the integrated Essence Chengdu project, developed by Chengdu Tai Hang Rui Hong Real Estate Co. Ltd.  

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 the Qingyang district of 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.

Dillip Rajakarier, Chief Executive Officer of Minor Hotels (owner of Anantara Hotels and Resorts) commented, “We are excited to announce the first Anantara in Chengdu, China in partnership with Chengdu Tai Hang Rui Hong Real Estate Co., Ltd. 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 to feature 150 guest rooms 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.

Located along the Yangxi Western Third Ring Road in Chengdu, Essence Chengdu boasts a prime 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.

 Capitalising on Chengdu’s fast-paced developments, the new hotel is strategically positioned for increasing demand. At present, hotels in Chengdu are concentrated in the city centre, accompanied by a second hotel submarket in Tianfu New District. By contrast in the western Qingyang district there are currently no upscale and luxury hotels, nor any international branded hotels, meaning that the new Anantara will be the first luxury and upscale global hotel brands in this growing and well-connected part of town catering to high-end leisure and business guests.
