The luxury property is expected to feature 160 rooms with panoramic views over the banks of the Dong Ping river.

The Langham, Foshan will be a stone’s throw from the Foshan Tanzhou International Convention Centre and is strategically situated at the crossroads of major urban and transportation hubs.

From the property, it will an approximately 25-minute commute to Guangzhou South railway station, 40 minutes to Shenzhen, an hour to Guangzhou Baiyun airport and two hours to neighbouring Hong Kong.

The Langham, Foshan will feature Cantonese dining in T’ang Court, a sibling of the 3-Michelin starred and Black Pearl establishment with the same name in Hong Kong, and there will also be the brand’s signature Chuan Spa.

Historically, Foshan traces its history to the Ming Dynasty and earned a reputation for its open green spaces and for being one of China’s four top commercial hubs in the 18th century. The city is also known as the birthplace of Cantonese Opera, the cradle of Kung Fu and home to the family of Bruce Lee.

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