Mandarin Oriental has signed a management
contract for a luxury hotel in Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu
Province in China.
Scheduled to open in 2022, the Mandarin
Oriental, Nanjing will be located on the Qinhuai River in close
proximity to historic landmarks including the Gate of China, which
forms part of one of the longest ancient city walls in the world
built by the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty over 600 years ago.
The hotel will feature 106 rooms and suites with
views of the river and the ancient city wall.
There will be three
restaurants and bars, including an all-day dining option, a
Chinese restaurant and a Lobby Lounge.
The hotel will also feature a spa, an indoor
swimming pool, fitness centre and a range of adaptable meeting
facilities, including a ballroom.
Mandarin Oriental, Nanjing will form part of a
wider mixed-use development that will comprise
premium retail space and residential luxury homes.
The site is well located for leisure travellers
to the city, being a short walk to popular tourist attractions,
including the Confucius Temple quarter and the Old East Gate,
which was originally built in the Ming Dynasty. The overall
development will also be well served by good transportation links.
“Nanjing is one of China’s most prominent
destinations, and this overall development will be the city’s most
prestigious. We are pleased to be partnering with Mandarin
Oriental to create a truly exceptional lifestyle experience in
this prime location. We believe this extraordinary project will
become the new landmark for the city,” said Nanjing Shengxiangyuan
Property Development Co., Ltd.’s Board of Directors.
