One of Asia’s most vibrant cities, Guangzhou is a sprawling port metropolis of more than 14 million people. Known for its energy, entrepreneurial population and cutting-edge architecture, it’s third only to Shanghai and Beijing in terms of its importance to the Chinese economy.
And right in the heart of this teeming metropolis is the newly opened Jumeirah Living Guangzhou. Located in the city’s Tianhe district, the hotel features 169 residences, all with spectacular views of the city. The property is divided into two towers. The North Tower features a contemporary approach to luxury which is sure to attract Asia’s new breed of entrepreneurs. The South Tower takes a more traditional approach to luxury: the vibe is here is palatial and very indulgent, all neo-classical architecture, double-height ceilings and marble floors.
The rooms in both towers feature everything from an Illy coffee machine to a flat-screen TV to high-speed WiFi. The apartments also feature state-of-the-art cooking appliances, washing machines and dishwashers, to complete the home away from home feel. The hotel also features a stunning gym for those pre-meeting workouts and an outdoor swimming pool, perfect to unwind in after a long day at the office.
Anyone who knows Guangzhou knows it reputation as a culinary hub, and the birthplace of Cantonese cuisine. You can sample just some of the region’s cuisine at the Ting restaurant and lounge on the 7th floor, which is perfect for a mid-meeting pit stop or some post-work drinks. For those in need of some retail therapy – or just something for your loved ones back at home – Winter Mall, connected to the hotel, is one of the city’s best luxury shopping destinations.
Jumeirah Living Guangzhou overlooks the beautiful People’s Park and is minutes’ away from the city’s business district. Whether for short or long stays, business or pleasure Jumeirah’s newest Chinese property is a welcome addition to the Chinese hotel landscape.
