Langham Hospitality Group will manage the first new luxury city center hotel under the Langham Place brand in Haining, a metropolis in the Zhejiang coastal province. The property, which is being developed by Hong Kong-based Mingly Real Estate Corporation, is scheduled to open in 2014.
With 266 guestrooms and suites, Langham Place, Haining will be part of an integrated complex comprising a retail shopping center, commercial offices and residential apartments.
Langham Place, Haining will offer guests multiple dining and entertainment options, including an all-day dining restaurant, a casual lounge and bar and, for the first time in Haining, the fine-dining Chinese restaurant that is inspired by the Michelin-starred Ming Court at Langham Place, Hong Kong. The hotel’s highest floor will be the setting for special occasions, complemented by the panoramic vistas of the city below.
The hotel’s meeting and banqueting facilities will have a 9,687-square-foot pillar-free grand ballroom, a junior ballroom of 3,229 square feet and eight multi-function rooms ranging from 484 square feet to 1,076 square feet. The highlight for event planners will be the 32,292-square-foot ceremonial hall set amid a private landscaped Wedding Park along the city’s river, the first of its kind in Zhejiang province.
The Chuan Spa at Langham Place, Haining will incorporate the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and wellness treatments in a meditative setting. The spa will include six private treatment rooms and a Contemplation Lounge, as well as an indoor swimming pool and a fully equipped fitness center.
Haining has a heritage dating back 6,000 years to the New Stone Age. Located at the south of the Yangtze River delta, it is a 90-minute drive to Shanghai and one hour away to the city of Hangzhou. Haining is also popular with thousands of tourists who visit the ancient monuments dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties.
