Shanghai-based Zendai Group unveiled the Himalayas Qingdao Hotel, the debut hotel for the new deluxe hospitality brand, Himalayas Hotels & Communities.
Himalayas Qingdao Hotel is the first lifestyle hotel in northeastern China's beachside city of Qingdao. The hotel is positioned in the seaside Laoshan District at the base of Mt. Lao (Lao Shan), and a 10 minutes' drive to Shilaoren Beach. The lifestyle hotel forms part of Zendai Thumb Plaza, an integrated lifestyle community encompassing residences, shopping, dining and entertainment. The hotel is a 25-minute drive from Qingdao Liuting International Airport and Qingdao Railway Station. Qingdao International Convention Centre, the Qingdao Beer Festival site, and Grand Theatre are right at the hotel's doorstep.
The Himalayas Qingdao Hotel was designed by HASSELL Studio Australia, the same firm behind the designs of the Sydney Olympic Swimming Centre and Chongqing Grand Theatre. The interiors take inspiration from Mt. Lao and its natural lodestones.
Himalayas Qingdao Hotel has 208 paperless guestrooms, including 24 Suites. Every room has high-tech luxury amenities, including high-definition LED TVs, iPod docks and complimentary Wi-Fi. The all-day Z1 Restaurant serves gourmet local and international cuisines. The Z1 Lounge Bar serves signature cocktails and fine wines, plus 'Aperitivo' happy hours.
