Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is to manage a luxury hotel which is under development in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province (China).
Mandarin Oriental, Chengdu, which is slated to open in 2015, will form part of a prestigious mixed-use development located on a prime riverfront site in the Jin-jiang district, close to the city’s key commercial and entertainment areas and opposite the ancient Wang-jiang Park, which dates back to the Ming dynasty.
The hotel will be positioned as the most sophisticated luxury hotel in Western China. Located on the top 33 floors of an iconic tower, the property will feature 320 rooms and 41 expansive suites, with outstanding views of the Jin-jiang river, the city skyline and Wang-jiang Park.
Chengdu is located in the fertile Chengdu Plain and is one of the most important business and leisure centres in Southwest China. It is fast becoming the city of choice for international investors doing business in Central and Western China, and is also a popular leisure destination and a gateway to a number of prime tourist attractions. These include the Wo-long panda research centre, E-mei Mountain, the Giant Buddha of Le-shan and the stunning Huang-long and Jiu-zhai-gou national parks. www.mandarinoriental.com
