Mandarin Oriental increases central Chinese footprint

by | 04 Nov 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has signed up to manage a new hotel in Tianfu, a modern business district south of Chengdu, the capital city of Szechuan province.

Mandarin Oriental Tianfu, Chengdu is due to open in 2028, comprising 267 guestrooms and suites as well as a club lounge.

Extensive amenities

Four restaurants and bars will provide a variety of cuisines, while significant meeting and event space should ensure the hotel is well positioned for business and social gatherings. A Mandarin Oriental signature spa will provide a range of beauty and massage treatments, and a well-equipped fitness centre with indoor swimming pool will expand the wellness offering.

The hotel will sit in Tianfu’s primary development zone, comprising regional offices and headquarters of multinational corporations as well as international convention and exhibition venues.

Chinese portfolio building

James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental, said: “We are delighted to be part of this exciting project and to be extending the group’s presence into western China. This development reinforces the group’s commitment to building on our existing mainland China portfolio in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Sanya, along with properties currently under development in Hangzhou, Nanjing and Qianmen, Beijing.

“I am pleased to partner with the developer, China Overseas Land & Investment (COLI), especially given their assured commitment to sustainability, aligning with our own sustainability goals and objectives.”

Dynamic destination

COLI management stated: “We are excited to partner with the prestigious Mandarin Oriental brand on this important addition to our development portfolio. We believe Mandarin Oriental’s global reputation for excellence will ensure that this luxury hotel provides an exceptional addition to this important new business district complementing our ambition to create a new and dynamic destination south of Chengdu.”

Mandarin Oriental’s Chinese pipeline includes Mandarin Oriental Qianmen, Beijing adding 72 rooms near Tiananmen Square in Q4 2023; delivering in the same quarter is Mandarin Oriental Hotel Nanjing, a 106-key site featuring three restaurants and bars, a range of adaptable meeting facilities, a large ballroom and a spa; and the 194-room Mandarin Oriental Hangzhou arriving in Q1 2025.
