Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has announced the soft opening of the 325-room Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen. Situated in the Guanyin Shan Business Centre, the hotel is less than 10 minutes’ drive to the Xiamen International Conference and Exhibition Centre and 20 minutes from the Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport.
Located in a new 22-storey building, over 70% of the guestrooms and suites at Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen take advantage of the outstanding sea views and range from the 42-square-metre Deluxe Sea View Room to the elegantly styled Shangri-La Suite offering 168 square metres of living space. The urban resort features unique Minnan-style architecture – that is often associated with the use of red bricks – to reflect Xiamen’s art and culture and complement the design theme of a botanical paradise in the hotel’s public areas.
Guests have access to two restaurants and a bar including Café Amoy, an all-day-dining restaurant with show kitchens, and Fu Gong, a harbour-inspired Chinese restaurant with Cantonese and Minnan cuisin, and The Lobby Lounge, serving local snacks and outdoor barbecues in the evening.
Other facilities include a 1,500-square-metre pillarless Grand Ballroom with an eight-metre-high ceiling, which can accommodate up to 1,000 guests. Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen is the only hotel in the city to feature an elevator that is large enough to transport automobiles directly to the ballroom. In addition to indoor and outdoor areas, nine other adaptable event spaces can host gatherings for 30 to 400 guests.
In keeping with Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen’s urban resort concept, a 7,200-square-metre park – built and managed by the hotel for public use – sits adjacent to the hotel and comprises a jogging track, children’s area, a walkway to the beach, an outdoor team building area and space for events. NX Fitness & Spa covers 3,000 square metres and features an indoor heated swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, kid’s club, as well as beauty and massage treatments in the spa area.
