Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to open a property in China’s Xi’an in 2026.

The new-build Four Seasons Hotel Xi’an will be part of a mixed-use development project and feature 250 rooms and suites. There will also be two restaurants, a lobby bar and a rooftop bar overlooking Muta Temple Relics Park.

Meeting and event spaces will include several private dining rooms, two ballrooms and flexible rooms. Leisure facilities will include a spa,  indoor and outdoor pools, and open-air space for exercise and Tai Chi.

Bart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, commented:

“Xi’an is a dynamic destination known for its history, culture and incredible growth grounded in the city’s flourishing tourism and technology sectors.

“We are thrilled to continue expanding Four Seasons footprint in China alongside our partners at Vanzhong Group. This exceptional new hotel will offer guests a luxury respite in the bustling city of Xi’an that effortlessly meets the needs of today’s business and leisure travellers.”

Xi’an, located in central China, is home to UNESCO World Heritage-protected temples, pagodas and relics and has been dubbed the ‘Digital Silk Road’ due to its burgeoning tech sector.

The hotel will be adjacent to Muta Temple Relics Park and a short walk from Tang Dynasty Wall Relics Park. In terms of transport, it will be located approximately 45 minutes by car from Xi’an Xianyang International airport and accessible via high-speed rail and train for those travelling from destinations within China.

Four Seasons currently operates properties in Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Macao, Shenzhen, Tianjin along with the forthcoming Four Seasons Hotel Dalian.
