Hyatt Hotels Corporation today announced the opening of Grand Wuji Hotel in Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu Province.
This is The Unbound Collection by Hyatt’s fourth property in China.
“We are very excited to welcome guests to experience an extraordinary journey at Grand WUJI Hotel,” said Jenkin Li, general manager of the hotel.
“At Grand WUJI Hotel, the essence of a healthy lifestyle is integrated into every detail of the guest experience. The result is a revitalizing sanctuary that nourishes mind, body and soul, filled with the cultural heritage of Nanjing, the ancient capital of the Six Dynasties in China.”
Previously known as The Yovoy Hotel, Grand Wuji Hotel’s name references the concept of five seasons in Mandarin – spring, summer, long summer, autumn, winter, known as “Wuji” according to the hotel.
There are 272 guest rooms, including 56 suites. Rooms feature a “health corner” with a Chinese-style daybed for tea and peaceful meditation, adds the hotel. Each suite is also equipped with a smart mirror that automatically synchronises with a scale to offer guests personalised health data. The music playing through the audio system in guest rooms is adjusted according to the five seasons, says the hotel.
There are four dining experiences at the new hotel. LVQI Lobby Bar offers Chinese-style high tea and brewed tonics accompanied by “the soulful melodies of the ancient Chinese zither”. Jia Shu is the first vegan restaurant in a Nanjing luxury hotel, according to the hotel. Meanwhile, Jade Court features Cantonese cuisine and classic Huaiyang dishes, with views from the private balconies in each of the six private dining rooms. Five Tastes is an all-day restaurant with garden views and “fresh seasonal ingredients and flavours from around the world”.
The hotel offers nearly nearly 32,291 square feet (3,000 square meters) of meeting venues to host conferences, special events and weddings, supported by a professional events team.
Other facilities include a 24/7 fitness centre with Technogym equipment.
“Guests can benefit from a comprehensive health assessment and join in energy-boosting workouts in the 2,152-square-foot (200-square-meter) Energy Room or indoor heated swimming pool overlooking the garden,” reads a statement from the hotel
