The new Wanda International Resort Complex in Xishuangbanna officially launched on 26 September, covering 5.3km² of land in the sub-tropical region, which lies close to the borders with Laos and Myanmar.
The complex includes three hotels, including the Wanda Vista, DoubleTree by Hilton and Holiday Inn, plus a theme park, a “rainforest recreation and adventure park”, a shopping area, hospital and a theatre that will show performances based on the region’s ethnic groups.
The company’s own hotel, Wanda Vista Xishuangbanna Resort, comprises 26 buildings spread across 160,000m² of land, with 151 rooms and suites, restaurants, bars, a spa, fitness centre, swimming pool, children’s playground and even a Buddhist temple. There is also a 4,000m² conference centre. Every room offers at least 137m² of space and features its own private pool.
The 412-room DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Xishuangbanna and 415-room Holiday Inn Resort Xishuangbanna take the complex’s total inventory to 978 rooms and suites.
“The group of premium hotels that form the Wanda Xishuangbanna International Resort Complex represent the ambitious development plans of Wanda Hotels & Resorts in China’s southwest region,” said Qian Jin, president of Wanda Hotels & Resorts.
“These three hotels will provide an outstanding vacation experience inspired by the unique local cultural landscape, enhanced by a wide offering of resort activities and facilities. They have made Xishuangbanna into a new world-class holiday destination, taking local tourism to new heights.”
