Shanghai, April 17- As one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in China, Guilin, with its beautiful landscapes, attracts numerous visitors from all over the world, including Tommy Lai, the North Asia Vice President of the ONYX Hospitality Group, who has acutely smelt business opportunities there.
At the recent Asia Hotel Forum Annual Meeting, ONYX Hospitality Group shared with us that one of its brands, Amari, will open its first hotel in China mid this year, with Yangshuo in Guilin being its home.
The hotel features 73 guestrooms, comprising Superior and Deluxe Rooms, Junior, Two Bedroom Duplex, and Three Bedroom Suites – ideal for individual travellers, couples, friends, and even families. Moreover, most of the guestrooms also feature balconies with splendid views of the Yitian West Street, waterfront or mountains.
Adhering to international service standards, the hotel also takes the physical location into account. According to Tommy, the four-story hotel, which is situated next to the West Street, one of Guilin’s oldest streets, mixes the oriental features of Yangshuo with a modern Asian hospitality experience.
Notably, the Amaya Food Gallery, the main restaurant of Amari Yangshuo, will also be unveiled in China for the first time. Inspired by the beloved Asian street food market, the restaurant boldly uses rich colors and dynamic textures in design and has especially designed an open kitchen for interactions with guests.
Amari, being the group’s centerpiece, has been reflecting the warmth and energy of an evolving modern Asia. Currently, Amari operates 15 properties in popular tourist destinations across the Asia-Pacific region, with new hotels currently under development in locations such as Galle in Sri Lanka and Johor Bahru in Malaysia.
