Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts last week broke ground for Shangri-La Hotel, Putian, an urban resort scheduled to open in 4Q2020 as the brand's third address in China's Fujian province after Fuzhou and Xiamen.
Shangri-La Hotel, Putian will have 247 guestrooms offering panoramic views of the city and Yanshou river. On-site facilities include a lobby lounge, restaurants, spa, fitness centre, swimming pool and a 1,200m2 ballroom.
Adjacent to the hotel, a 3,500m2 village-style plaza developed by the government for culture and tourism will offer a mix of restaurants, bars and retail shops.
Shangri-La Asia CEO Lim Beng Chee said: “Putian has remarkable economic potential for both business and tourism, which presents a great opportunity for the group.”
