Four Seasons reveals details of second Hangzhou hotel

Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has unveiled the plans for its second site in Hangzhou, China.

In partnership with Greentown China Holdings Limited, China Resources Land Limited and Hangzhou Metro Development Company Limited, Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at Hangzhou Centre will open in Q4 2024.

Mixed use heart

At the heart of the city’s newest mixed-use development project, Hangzhou Centre Towers, the hotel will offer a luxury hospitality experience inspired by the city’s natural landscape.

Characterised by Hangzhou’s islands, historic temples, expansive parkland, freshwater lakes and rolling hills, the hotel will provide a peaceful contrast to the city’s busy downtown district. The 150,000 sq m complex will consist of two 130 m towers and 8,500 sq m of outdoor green space throughout.

Design leaders

The hotel’s architecture will be led by Goettsch Partners and GAD, with interior design by Avalon Collective. Restaurant and bar design will be by AB Concept and Kokai Studios, and landscape design by P Landscape.

Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at Hangzhou Centre will welcome guests with a collection of 214 luxury rooms and suites, with river and West Lake views, ranging from 54 to 300 sq m.

Panoramic eating

The property will feature an array of restaurant, lounge and event spaces.

With panoramic city views, the culinary offerings will include a signature Chinese restaurant with five private dining rooms; a rooftop bar with gardens; a garden tea pavilion for afternoon refreshments and an all-day dining outlet featuring a globally inspired menu with an interactive hot pot experience with live stations for seafood, butchery and snacks.

Meetings and recreation

Well-suited for occasions of all sizes, the hotel’s 2,855 sq m of indoor and outdoor event space, including a 1,290 sq m pillarless ballroom, will set the stage for events and conventions.

More than 1,000 sq m of recreation space will include an indoor pool, whirlpool, spa and fitness facilities. 

Dynamic opportunity

Bart Carnahan, president, global business development, portfolio management and residential, Four Seasons, said: “With this project, we are establishing another dynamic opportunity for guests and locals alike to experience Four Seasons in Hangzhou.

“While beautifully complementing our existing hotel at West Lake, we are building our presence both in the city and throughout China. Together with each of our valued partners, we are proud to be part of the Hangzhou Centre project to bring a new luxury hospitality experience to this exciting destination.”

Premier leisure destination

Kaixu Yan, executive deputy general manager, commerce management division, Greentown China Holdings Limited, added: “Hangzhou Centre will redefine the urban landscape, establishing itself as a premier destination for leisure, boasting high-end retail options, speciality dining experiences, luxurious accommodations, and exceptional banquet and conference services.
