The Langham to move into Foshan’s first high rise resort

Langham Hospitality Group (LHG) has signed a management agreement with Parkland Group for a new hotel to be based in China’s Greater Bay Area.

The Langham, Foshan will be part of Foshan’s first high-rise urban resort, the One Sanlong Bay development, which is scheduled to open in 2028.

Panoramic luxury

The primary aim of the 160-room luxury facility will be to capture the city’s natural beauty, with panoramic views over the banks of the Dong Ping River. 

Guests will be able to enjoy Cantonese dining in T’ang Court, a sibling of the three-Michelin-starred and Black Pearl establishment with the same name in Hong Kong. Plus the hotel will offer the brand’s signature afternoon tea, a British classic that pays tribute to the home of the original afternoon tea, The Langham, London.

Relaxing and meeting

Chuan Spa, LHG’s proprietary wellness brand based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, will also find a new home in the high-rise urban resort, allowing guests to relax with river views following a rejuvenating treatment.

The property will additionally feature an extensive number of meeting and event spaces for gatherings and social functions. They will include one of the largest ballrooms in the city, with an area of 800 sq m.

Low-carbon footprint

The One Sanlong Bay mixed use development will also feature luxury residential units as well as Grade A and prime-commercial office spaces.

Government planning in the Sanlong Bay area has focused on offering residents and visitors a high quality of life. This, together with its abundant natural resources and green urban environment, will see Foshan bring sustainable living with a low-carbon footprint to the fore.

Strategic move

Bob van den Oord, CEO, Langham Hospitality Group, said: “The Greater Bay Area is a key international powerhouse where Langham Hospitality Group enjoys a strong and growing presence with all of our brands represented. Introducing The Langham to the first-tier hub city of Foshan is an important strategic move for us in this context, and one that will set a new benchmark for luxury experiences.”

Guo Dongfeng, vice chairman of Parkland Group, added: “The partnership with Langham Hospitality Group will ensure that we deliver an innovative and unique luxury hotel in an outstanding location that will attract and cater to both local and international visitors.”

Chinese expansion

The Langham, Foshan will join Langham Hospitality Group’s nine other properties in the Greater Bay Area, either open or under development.

Projects underway elsewhere in China include The Langham, Wuhan Greenland Center, part of a skyscraper heading to Hubei province’s capital, and The Langham, Chengdu, a 200-key site arriving in western China in Q3 2024.
