Marriott has opened a new hotel under its Luxury Collection brand, in the capital of Guangxi Province, Nanning. The new opening marks the brand’s eighth property in China.
Na Lotus Hotel resides in a high-rise landmark building, immersing guests in the heart of the business district. The contemporary setting merges the rich heritage of the Zhuang minority group and showcases their history through beautiful décor, evocative catering and magnificent surroundings.
“We have introduced Nanning to our global explorers, allowing them to discover the destination, also known as the Green City due to the abundance of lush foliage here. As a culturally rich ethnic minority area in Guangxi Province, the destination is a perfect gateway for travellers to experience through the lens of the Luxury Collection,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader of the Luxury Collection.
Each of the 290 guestrooms, including 26 suites, takes inspiration from the lotus flower, and feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the city as well as the Yong River and Qingxiu mountain. The hotel’s interiors echo strong elements of the Zhuang culture such as farmlands, symbolising happiness and prosperity.
Na Lotus Hotel also features a 1,100 square metre ballroom, state-of-the-art fitness centre and an indoor pool overlooking the skyline. “As the first Marriott International luxury hotel in Guangxi Province, we invite the guests to explore the charm of Nanning,” said Henry Lee, chief operations officer and managing director of Marriott International in Greater China.
