Zendai Group debuts the Himalayas Hotels & Communities brand with the Himalayas Qingdao Hotel

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.
