The Conrad Jiuzhaigou has opened in Sichuan, China. The new hotel is close to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Jiuzhaigou Valley Scenic and Historic Interest Area, and 46 kilometres from the Fairy Pool Scenic Area.
The hotel’s design is described as a “modern interpretation of the local Amdo Tibetan culture, with Tibetan cultural elements and motifs woven throughout the design and architecture of the hotel”. Details include “Original artefacts such as sword handles, and wooden furniture featuring bold, traditional patterned fabrics, which create a charming, quintessentially Tibetan atmosphere with a contemporary twist”. Conrad Jiuzhaigou is owned by China Green Development Investment Group Co. Ltd. and managed by Hilton.
There are 161 rooms, including 26 villas with sizes ranging up to 460m2, each featuring a terrace with a view of the forested mountainous landscape. Guest welcomes include an art piece inspired by the Hada – a white silk scarf that is a sign of respect and welcome – as a reference to Tibetan family-like hospitality.
The hotel has an all-day dining restaurant called BAS.IN with Tibetan wooden furniture, the restaurant features traditional local handicrafts displayed alongside art pieces that combine green plants and native materials. The Specialty Bar & Grill is called M’EAT with an open kitchen for a view of freshly grilled meats over crackling flames, with the restaurant serving specialty yak meat and local ingredients, and furnishings made of leather, wood and aged metal add to the warm and comfortable ambiance. Guests can also enjoy alfresco seating on a large terrace for a scenic dining experience, immersing themselves in nature as they overlook the Zhongcha Valley.
Qian Jin, president of Hilton Greater China and Mongolia, said, “Conrad Jiuzhaigou introduces another incredible hotel from Conrad Hotels & Resorts to one of the most extraordinary locations in China – adding to our existing portfolio of 12 Conrad properties across Greater China in key destinations like Beijing, Hangzhou, Sanya, Guangzhou, and more.”
