Construction of Anantara Anji in Zhejiang, China will break ground next month towards a completion by end-2024.
The luxury property will span 66.8 hectares of land, taking in 162 guestrooms with sizes ranging from 53m2 to 216m2, four international restaurants, an outdoor swimming pool with bar, a full fitness centre, a children’s activity zone, and meeting facilities.
Hotel guests will be able to partake in sustainability programmes, such as tree-planting for the whole family, as well as cultural experiences, such as visits to ancient temples and the nearby residence of Wu Changshuo, a prominent painter, calligrapher and seal artist during the late Qing Period.
Day trips to Anji County’s famous bamboo forests and nearby tea plantations will also be offered.
Anji County is popular with nature lovers, and has been designated as an ecology-friendly city where residents have established a thriving agricultural and tourism sector showcasing pollution-free green products, such as white tea, alpine vegetables, and flowers.
It is also home to one of the largest natural bamboo forests in the world with over 60,000 hectares of bamboo groves containing over 40 different species.
Anji County is less than an hour’s drive from Zhejiang’s capital of Hangzhou.
