Banyan Tree Holdings has partnered with private property developer, Kunming City-Construction Real Estate Development to operate two new hotels in northern Kunming, Yunnan Province, China.

Banyan Tree Kunming and Angsana Kunming will be Banyan Tree’s inaugural hotels in Kunming, and will complement its growth expansion in China where over a dozen projects are slated to open by 2012.

KCC Chairman, Mr. Li Jie, said, “Located north of Kunming, we envision this integrated development to feature a holistic mix that will stimulate and energise the new city district. This includes business hotels, a financial centre, a business enterprise park, commercial facilities, as well as KCC's headquarters. We hope also to capitalise on its potential to fuel the growth of property development and bring healthy, renewed prospects and prosperity to Kunming.”

Banyan Tree Kunming and Angsana Kunming will benefit from the area’s intensive infrastructure development. The hotels will be within a 40-minute drive from Kunming International Airport and plans are in the pipeline to develop the area’s entertainment, commercial, education, sports, medical and recreational facilities and services.

 Kunming also offers a diverse selection of travel experiences like the scenic Cui Hu (Green Lake) Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Stone Forest, and the vibrant Yunnan Nationalities Village.

Banyan Tree Kunming and Angsana Kunming will be part of an integrated development which will feature eight food and beverage outlets, meeting facilities, as well as a Banyan Tree Spa and Angsana Spa. The floor plan of two hotels, which are joined up to the 10th floor, is built in the shape of a figure eight, an auspicious number that many Chinese believe brings fortune and luck.

Banyan Tree Kunming is slated to have around 150 rooms. Hotel guests will be able to choose between modern Thai cuisine at Banyan Tree’s signature Saffron restaurant, Chinese dishes at Baiyun, or sweeping panoramic views of the city at Vertigo.

The Banyan Tree Spa will introduce its award-winning brand of Asian-inspired spa treatments and service to Kunming, which guests will be able to enjoy in the privacy of one of eight treatment rooms.

For a more contemporary retreat, guests will be able to check into one of Angsana Kunming’s 285 rooms.

In addition to the Banyan Tree Kunming and Angsana Kunming, Banyan Tree has also signed a management agreement with KCC to develop a destination resort, Angsana Fu Xian Lake, in Chengjiang county.

 Overlooking the Fu Xian Lake, the development spans 30 hectares, and offers over 1,300 room keys and eclectic selection of recreational facilities.

As part of the group’s continued strategic collaboration with KCC, two other hotel management agreements have also been signed for projects in Dali and Yuanyang.
