Hilton Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake, its second hotel in Yunnan province.
Owned by Yunnan Metropolitan City Investment Group and operated by Hilton Worldwide, the hotel is on the shores of Fuxian Lake, and features a Mediterranean architectural style and 346 guest rooms, reports Travel Daily News Asia.
“Hilton has always enjoyed strong resonance in China, having been one of the first international brands to operate in this dynamic country. The addition of Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake strengthens our presence in China where we now have more than 50 hotels, further introducing the Hilton brand to many more corporate and leisure travelers visiting this popular destination,” said Hilton Worldwide’s global head of full service brands Rob Palleschi.
The resort’s rooms feature furnishings that reflect Yunnan’s culture and offer private balconies with views of the gardens or Fuxian Lake. Guests staying in the executive rooms or suites have access to the Executive Lounge, which offers complimentary breakfast and refreshments, including evening cocktails.
The grounds of the resort offer relaxing environments for guests, including a private white sand beach, landscaped gardens, and forests of bamboo, along with playgrounds for guests’ children. There is also a full-service spa, mahjong and game rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, a 24-hour, fully-equipped fitness center, 1,900 square meters of meeting and banquet spaces — including a 1,200-person capacity banquet hall with a state-of-the-art A/V system — and six restaurants. Guests looking to explore the great outdoors outside of the resort can choose to mountain bike, hike, or visit the nearby driving range.
The culinary options at Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake include Asiana, featuring dishes influenced by ethnic Chinese minorities alongside Western and Asian-Pacific flavors. At the Garden, guests can dine on fresh, seasonal dishes in the brightly-lit, greenhouse-reminiscent restaurant. For guests looking to unwind with a drink, the Capa Cigar Bar offers the region’s finest collection of single malt whiskys and Cuban cigars. Guests desiring afternoon tea can visit the Cha Tea Room. Coffee drinkers can grab a cup of coffee on the Hu Lobby Lounge Terrace.
“With a population of 45 million, Yunnan is rapidly developing into a center for tourism and manufacturing. Joining the Hilton Garden Inn Lijiang, we are now opening our second hotel in Yunnan, Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake, to continue our tradition of welcoming leisure and business guests to the world’s most dynamic economic centers and scenic tourist destinations with our stylish, forward-thinking global hospitality,” said Bruce McKenzie, Hilton’s senior vice president of operations for Greater China and Mongolia.
