Mandarin Oriental has inked a deal to manage a new luxury hotel in Hangzhou, China, scheduled to open in 2025.
Hangzhou is a leading centre of tourism, culture, science and education in the province of Zhejiang, and is undergoing significant expansion and rejuvenation.
Mandarin Oriental, Hangzhou will be part of the Westlake 66 mixed-use commercial and luxury retail complex being developed by Hang Lung Properties. The development will be a leading attraction in the city, located close to the West Lake, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of China’s primary leisure destinations, with easy access to the city’s principal business hubs, Binjiang and Qianjiang.
The hotel will comprise 194 guestrooms and suites, four restaurants and bars.
Extensive spa and wellness facilities will provide a comprehensive range of wellness, beauty and massage treatments, featuring Mandarin Oriental’s signature spa therapies. A fitness centre and indoor swimming pool will also be featured.
“We are delighted to be part of this exciting project and to be extending the Group’s presence in mainland China. This development further reinforces the Group’s commitment to building on our existing portfolio in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Sanya, along with properties currently under development in Nanjing, Shenzhen and Qianmen, Beijing,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental.
