SOFITEL Luxury Hotels will open a new hotel in Kunming in early 2014. This will be the first Sofitel property in Yunnan province, China.

Markland Blaiklock, senior vice president of Sofitel Asia Pacific, said: “With this additional presence, Sofitel Luxury Hotels will have a total of 27 hotels in Greater China, including upcoming projects in Sanya, Haikou and Lianyungang which will come on line in the next three years.”

The Sofitel Kunming will feature 405 hotel rooms and suites, three restaurants and two bars, a large pillar-free ballroom and a multi-function room, eight meeting rooms of various sizes, the group’s signature So SPA, a fitness centre and an indoor swimming pool. It will also have an executive lounge and a fully-equipped business centre.

The new hotel will be located in downtown Kunming. In the hotel’s immediate vicinity, Luosi Bay Central Business District is being redeveloped under an ambitious urban planning scheme, and is set to become a focal point of the city.
