International luxury hotel group Wanda Hotels & Resorts announced the official opening of their new Wanda Reign hotel in Chengdu today. Wanda Reign is the group’s most premium brand of luxury hotels, and the Chengdu property is its second hotel, after Wanda Reign Wuhan, to be under this brand, as well as the brand’s first location in China’s southwest region.
Wanda Reign Chengdu enjoys a prime central location in the city’s business district, right where South Renmin Road meets the Jinjiang River. The city’s golden commercial district also bears historical significance as the starting point of the Southern Silk Road. The hotel’s Sky Lobby is located on the 41st floor and enjoys a bird’s eye view of the city as well as of the city’s landmarks, Tianfu Square in the north and the Jinjiang River in the south.
Designed with an intriguing “New Chinese Art Deco” theme, the hotel uniquely incorporates local Shu themes, such as the Chinese hibiscus, Sichuan-style trellis patterns, tassels and lanterns, into classic Art Deco, showcasing the hotel’s oriental heritage through its intricate details. Elements of Chinese culture are woven through this classically elegant setting for a sense of place to elicit an experience that is immersed in the distinct charm of the Tianfu district. This attention to style even extends to the hotel staff’s uniforms, which were especially created by local designer and Paris Haute Couture Week alumnus, Lawrence Xu, who interpreted the Wanda Reign principles of “Elegance, Luxury, Perfection” with this elegant collection.
The hotel comprises 240 elegant rooms and suites, offering guests an experience of utmost comfort with state-of-the-art modern facilities and chic Eastern interiors. In every room, the heavenly “Bed of Reign”, featuring Talalay latex mattresses handmade in the USA and sumptuously dressed in New Zealand wool bedding, is matched with the hotel’s signature “Dream Catcher” services, which offer amenities such as aromatherapy, soothing music and bedtime reading materials to help guests achieve a blissful night’s sleep. Professional massage chairs in each room offer ultimate comfort and relaxation. Guests on the executive floor are offered personal care amenities from Hermès, along with other thoughtful details and perks to enhance their luxury stay experience. All hotel rooms are equipped with advanced facilities, including an interactive TV, iPad room control system, smart lighting, an intelligent sensor-controlled bathroom and complimentary 1000MB wireless Internet access. The exquisite Presidential Suite invites the most elite guests into a spacious 330 square meters of sheer luxury, styled with masterfully handcrafted furnishings and fine art, accented by glazed porcelain, metallic sculptures and a magnificent hibiscus painting detailed in gold leaf.
The hotel’s restaurants offer guests a wide range of culinary choices. “ZHEN” Chinese restaurant, on the 5th floor, serves refined Cantonese and local Sichuan cuisine, and can create a customized “Prosperity Feast” menu upon request. On the 41st floor, “Café Reign” is the highest restaurant in Chengdu, and offers sumptuous all-day dining with stunning views of the city skyline and the Jin River. The restaurant’s essential seafood grills and aged steak are prepared with a Spanish charcoal grill and premium quality meat with irresistibly flavorful, mouthwatering results. Perched on the hotel’s highest floor, the Lobby Lounge serves a Western-style silver chocolate afternoon tea in the sky, the perfect treat for this sophisticated setting. The perfect place to unwind with some light conversation, the Lobby Lounge also offers premium local Shu wine and sommelier-recommended fine wines accompanied by smooth live music.
