The hotel also features two restaurants, including one serving traditional Uighur cuisine, a lobby lounge, a 24-hour gym, indoor swimming pool, and 1,700m² of meetings space, including the 480-pax Tianshan Grand Ballroom.

“Radisson Blu Kashgar is the city’s first upper upscale international hotel and will appeal to foreign and domestic travellers looking for a hotel experience that can be trusted, that also enables them to appreciate the local culture,” said Johann F Angerbauer, general manager of the Radisson Blu Kashgar.

A key stop on the ancient Silk Road, Kashgar is located in the far west of Xinjiang – China’s westernmost region – close to the borders with Central Asia, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The city has a strong Islamic culture and heritage.

Radisson Blu Kashgar joins the brand’s existing portfolio of hotels in China, covering such destinations as Beijing, Chongqing, Guangxi, Shanghai, Tianjin and Wuxi.
