Banyan Tree to Open First Hot Spring Resort
International hotel operator, Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts is the first to launch a hot spring resort in Chongqing China. Banyan Tree Chongqing Beibei will open to guests in the summer of 2013 and each of its 107 suites and villas will feature one-of-a-kind private hot spring pools. Guests can relax in their private hot spring and enjoy the water’s healing benefits at any time of day. The Banyan Chongqing will also feature additional indoor and outdoor hot spring pools within the resort’s precincts. This is the first time private healing pools have been introduced in Western China by Banyan Tree, echoing the hotel group’s continued mission to combine the best of local nature and culture with exhilarating holiday experience.
The resort will be located 40 minutes from the main city of Chongqing in the peaceful area of Beibei. The property is surrounded by the magnificent landscape of Jin Yun Mountain and Jialing River, offering guests 48 hot spring retreats and 59 hot spring villas. The resort’s design has a strong sense of place and reflects the start of the Minguo era with traditional multi-storey folk houses and an open bamboo-lined courtyard and foyer. The interiors will combine contemporary and traditional design with dark wood furnishings, marble floors and soft carpets complemented by the renowned Shu embroidery, brocades and lacquer art craft.
